Beautiful Cartagena, Colombia. 

Home to the happiest people on earth, the Colombian national sport is to obliterate outdated stereotypes about their country with their irrepressible zest for life. Passionate about their collective mission you're guaranteed a good time with your newfound friends. Explore the city's conveniently contained colonial architecture on foot, gorge yourself on a rich culinary scene being fuelled by Colombian chefs happy to be home after well-spent stints in Michelin restaurants abroad and cut a rug with the rhythmically blessed locals. The historic quest for gold and emeralds that put Cartagena on the map has given way to a modern-day pleasure hunt for more contemporary treasures - brilliant Caribbean beaches, a vibrant cultural scene and laid-back, effortless indulgence. Cartagena has nothing to envy its Caribbean neighbours when it comes to matching the expectations of a globetrotting glitterati. Whatever your tastes for living the high life - be it hip colonial casas, exclusive rooftop pool parties, gourmet restaurants and island hopping in your own private yacht - there's myriad ways to live it up like royalty in Colombia's Caribbean gem.
