School Overview

Nueva Lengua Cartagena is located in the fortified city in an amazing traditional neighbourhood: Getsemaní. It is one of the most classic and colourful parts of the city. The school is very close to some of the main historical places, such as: the Old City, Plaza de la Trinidad, the church of San Pedro Claver, Plaza de Santo Domingo, and more. The school itself is a large colonial house where you can enjoy a nice, comfortable environment while you take your Spanish lessons.

Cartagena is a fantastic city that guards the secrets of history in its walls, balconies, buildings and narrow cobbled streets. It is said that you do not know the Caribbean until you know Cartagena, its people and culture. In the Old City you are going to find fantastic restaurants, clubs and museums, exciting city streets and world famous architecture. Be prepared to enjoy its delicious cuisine, beaches and all the activities the city offers.

Cartagena is a UNESCO World Heritage City, and on the “must see” lists of millions of world travellers. Ramparts and walls were built all around the city in order to protect it from pirate attacks. The forts of San José and San Sebastián and the castles of San Felipe de Barajas and San Fernando y Las Bóvedas are still standing today, after nearly 500 years old. This majestic city on the South-western Caribbean retains much the charm, history, architecture, romance and adventure of days gone by.

Nearby Cartagena is located the famous Rosary Islands Natural Park, which is a group of coral islands with some of the best beaches in Colombia. Only 40 minutes from Cartagena is the Totumo swamp, which is a shallow fresh water lake besides the sea. This is a paradisiacal place where a huge variety of migratory and non-migratory birds nests are found, being a delight for tourist and locals. There you can take a bath in the crater of a volcano covering yourself with the famous mud volcano. Cartagena has a huge selection of charming restaurants and clubs inside of Old City, within walking distance of the Nueva Lengua Spanish School.
