Chocolate Museum & City Highlights - CAG5

Embark on a four-hour trip that lets you explore Cartagena's history at Castillo San Felipe, its sweet legacy at the Choco Museo, and its Old City district on a guided walking tour. On a comfortable motor coach drive you'll first make a photo stop at the Hill of San Lazaro to view Castillo San Felipe, a stone bastion built by the Spaniards in the mid-1600s. Hear about its underground network of tunnels and how it was never taken throughout history. Then enter the Choco Museo, where you'll get an overview of ancient cacao harvesting and production techniques. Strap on an apron and get hands-on with a chocolate-making workshop, as you make your own chocolate-based beverages and candy bars by peeling, grinding and molding chocolate beans into sweet creations. Back in the center of Cartagena's walled-in Old City, you'll follow a knowledgeable local guide on foot along narrow streets and sprawling plazas filled with Colombian charm. Admire colonial architecture as you walk past timeworn churches, palaces and mansions — 30 minutes' free time is best spent shopping and snacking in the heart of town. A panoramic return bus ride through the modern Bocagrande district reveals glistening skyscrapers, swanky hotels and sizzling South American beach scenes.

Highlights:
• Castillo San Felipe: This 17th-century citadel makes for an epic snapshot from its perch atop the Hill of San Lazaro.
• Choco Museo: Discover the origin and history of chocolate while engaging in an interactive workshop and creating sweet treats.
