Best shore excursion with young children in Cartagena?


Recommended Posts

Hi There. We will be visiting Cartagena with our 4 and 1 year old. Would love to do the one of the tours, but are uncertain whether our little ones will be able to handle the 3-4 hours in a van/carriage/whatnot. Anyone have experience with small kids at this port of call? Should we just skip an excursion and walk around on foot? Recommendations? Suggestions? Thanks in advance!

We are taking our almost 3 year old in December. What did you end up doing with your little ones?


I hope you realize that you've not only resurrected a nearly nine-year-old dormant thread, but also that the poster to whom you have posed your question has never posted again on Cruise Critic since their original post.


We have visited Cartagena twice.  I can't imagine an excursion that would have anything to offer a child as young as yours or on which he or she would not be bored and possibly annoy others.  You should know, however, that at the cruise terminal, there is a small, free zoo and aviary.  It's quite interesting, and perhaps your child would enjoy seeing that.


If there are two of you, maybe only one of you goes ashore to tour?
