Why do nautical tourism and cruises at Colombia?

With coastal regions on two different oceans, Colombia is geographically privileged. Its ports are excellent destinations for cruise ships, yachts, and sailboats from all over the world. The development of Colombia’s marine industry and tourism in destinations such as San Andres, Santa Marta, Barranquilla, Cartagena, and the Pacific Coast opened the door for visitors to experience the country in a different, exciting way.

Principal cruises

Many major cruise lines dock every year at Colombian ports, including San Andres, Cartagena, Santa Marta, and the Pacific Coast. 


The country's geographical location at the northwestern tip of South America facilitates the arrival of vessels traveling the waters of the Caribbean.
