“Second to none”
Cartagena is a beautiful city situated on the Caribbean Coast in northern Colombia. Its well-preserved Colonial center was founded nearly 500 years ago and is surrounded by a massive thick wall. The city is perfect for history buffs and those who enjoy the unique architecture, but it also boasts a temperate and pleasant climate any time of the year.
It’s one of the lesser-visited cities in South America and, as a result, can be a bit of a hidden gem. Overall the city is very safe although it is becoming a more trendy destination for tourists.
It doesn’t matter if you are flying for business or for pleasure, our goal is to make your travels to and from Cartagena as pleasant as possible.
By renting a private jet with BitLux you will be able to travel to and from Cartagena without the hassles of a commercial flight. In other words, you won’t have to worry about standing in line for hours on end.
Depending on how far you are looking to travel, you will need to charter a jet which suits your specifications. For short trips of around 1500 miles, you should look at small cabin/light jets. These typically hold up to 7 people with luggage allocations. If you are looking to charter a private jet from Cartagena to Fort Lauderdale, or jet from Cartagena to Chicago, then a light jet may be your best option. Some of the Light jets available for Cartagena charter are the Hawker 400XP, Citation CJ3, and Citation Ultra.
For longer flights, a midsize cabin is required. These jets in Cartagena are more comfortable than a small jet and can fly between many U.S states nonstop, with a passenger capacity of 8. Midsizes, like the Hawker 800XP, Citation Excel, or Learjet 60, are great for a fair distance and comfortable on jet charters that are 2 hours or more – such as, Cartagena to Denver or Houston to Cartagena.
For longer domestic trips or intercontinental air charter, such as Cartagena to Los Angeles, or even Seattle to Cartagena. we suggest super midsize jet, such as the Challenger 300 or Hawker 1000. These are designed for longer domestic flights and even light transatlantic travel, with a typical passenger capacity of 9 people.
Lastly, if you are looking to a private jet charter from Cartagena to Shanghai, or other International destinations, then a Heavy cabin jet or Ultra Long Range is required. These heavy cabin and ultra-long range jets are the pinnacle of luxury in private travel. With a passenger capacity of 16, these heavy jets can get you from one place to another in style, perfect for transoceanic travel.
If you are a traveling in a large group for business, then it is advised that you look towards the large cabin or heavy cabin jets. Some examples of Heavy and Ultra Long Range charter jets are the Falcon 2000, Gulfstream G550, Falcon 7x, and Challenger 604/605.

The colonial city of Cartagena was founded in 1533 and was initially known as Cartagena de Indjas. It’s the first Spanish city in the Americas. Cartagena began as a port for the export of Peruvian silver. After being continually ransacked and pillaged, a wall was built to protect it, although it continued to be targeted by pirates during the wall’s 200-year construction. The city earned its nickname, La Heroica, after enduring siege after siege.
Today the area within Cartagena’s walls is called Centro, but other historic neighborhoods of La Matuna, San Diego, and Getsemaní are also interesting to visit. Walking through the city center is relatively safe, and exploring the 234 streets can be done in a day. Not to be missed is the San Felipe Castle with its panoramic views and multitude of tunnels. It’s one of the most impressive fortresses ever built.
It’s worth wandering the city’s cobblestone streets, enjoying dinner on a rooftop bar, or dancing until dawn at one of many nightclubs. But anyone seeking a beach getaway for a day or longer should try one of the nearby archipelagos. Rosario Islands and San Bernardo are filled with a variety of unique islands to fit anyone’s taste.
Although it’s not among the top three largest cities in Colombia, Cartagena remains the country’s largest port. The city is on Colombia Standard Time, which is equivalent to Eastern Standard Time.
The temperature in Cartagena doesn’t fluctuate very much. Because of its tropical climate, temperatures usually stay consistently in the 70s and 80s. The driest months are December through April and the rainiest season is May through June. The city gets quite wet in the rainy season and gets 40 inches of rain annually.
January through March is the ideal time to visit because of the lack of rain and temperate weather. It can be a bit windy being along the coast, but a breeze is usually welcome with the warm climate.
After arriving via luxury jet, why not stay in the most luxurious accommodations in the city?
The best area to stay in Cartagena is within the walled city. The site is filled with boutique hotels and historic buildings. There are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby, and everything is steps from your hotel room. Centro is also the most popular and liveliest area of town as a result.
For those preferring more modern amenities, the high rise districts of Bocagrande and El Laguito in the commercial center have plenty of shopping. It’s also a relatively easy walk or cab ride into Centro to visit the historical sites or to get a taste of the activity.
Zona Norte is a lesser-known and quieter area with more excellent, exclusive beaches and resort-style hotels. It’s rather far from the action in the rest of Cartagena, but an alternative for those seeking a quieter or more exclusive vacation.

With its proximity to the sea, fresh fish is part of many menus in the city. Many dishes also include tropical fruits and vegetables.
Most bars have a tapas menu, which is made more enjoyable on a rooftop looking over the old city. Given the opportunity, don’t miss sundowners on the wall at Cafe del Mar. It’s the ideal spot to watch the sunset over the Caribbean Sea. Locals will eat a large lunch and then enjoy a late dinner, usually around 9 p.m. Restaurants away from tourists spots may be at their busiest late in the evening.

Taking a private jet is far more comfortable than flying commercial. Very few direct flights are available from the United States to Cartagena.
