about the trip

Welcome to Cartagena!

Cartagena de Indias is the undisputed queen of the Caribbean coast, a historic city of superbly preserved beauty lying within an impressive 13km of centuries-old colonial stone walls. Cartagena’s Old Town is a Unesco World Heritage Site – a maze of cobbled alleys, balconies covered in bougainvillea, and massive churches that cast their shadows across leafy plazas.

What to Expect

This is your chance to dance, party, exercise and explore one of the most beautiful cities in Colombia.   We’ve got a full weekend, with events, classes, parties and meals!  How can you miss out?
