Cartagena's old city is its principal attraction, particularly the inner walled town, consisting of the historical districts of El Centro and San Diego. It's one of finest examples of preserved colonial architecture in the Americas, packed with churches, monasteries, plazas, palaces and mansions with their famous overhanging balconies and shady patios.

Live a unique and unforgettable experience in Cartagena going to the roots of our ancestor and have a natural bath to clean all your energy.  Immerse yourself in the famous mud volcano which contains natural minerals for medicinal purposes.

Hello, My name is Nicole; owner of Art N Soul Escapes Travel Agency. I've been in the travel industry for over a decade and the event planning industry for the past 14 years. My passions are traveling and planning vacations. My love for travel has taken me to Europe, the Caribbean, Mexico, Africa, Asia, and Russia to name a few. I'm a firm believer that travel doesn't have to break the bank. Let me help you take the guess work out of so many options to choose from, and turn your dreams into a reality. No group is too big or small.

This was an absolutely wonderful trip! I had always wanted to go on a Mystery Trip, not being much of a planner, but a show up and lets go kinda person, and Nikki made that an enjoyable experience. From beginning to end, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. She allowed us to have time to our own devices, while doing some activities as a group. I like to relax and unplug on vacation, not feel as though I need a vacation from the vacation, and the Mystery Trip provided the perfect opportunity to do that. This was my first time traveling with Art n Soul Escapes, and I have one regret: I DIDN'T DO IT SOONER. If you are looking for an experience as you vacation, Art n Soul Escapes is the way to go.

What a wonderful trip to Aruba? Yes, the Mystery Trip was Aruba with great people from all walks of life. This was my 5th trip with We Travel. And, I returned to Atlanta refreshed and ready for my next trip. I could not have asked for a more perfect getaway. Many thanks to We Travel for another, great experience Kristen

I’ve used Art N Soul Escapes for small getaways as well as for grand vacays and I’ve always been satisfied. One of the main reasons I love this agency is because the agents are well-traveled and I think it’s important to work with a team that has experience with seeing the world. It doesn’t matter if you are going on a domestic or international trip, a solo vacay or family reunion Art N Soul Escapes is the best travel agency to use!! #BookWithArtNSoulEscapes

I had wonderful experiences with Art N Soul Escapes Travel Agency. This agency has planned five trips for me. And, I continue to use this agency because I always have positive experiences. From the prompt responses to my questions to the great accommodations and best of all the budget friendly payments arrangements. I would recommend Art N Soul Escapes Travel Agency for anybody who wants to have an experience vs. just another trip.

I have booked several trips with Nicole Roorda, including South Africa, Panama City, Panama, Cancun, Brazil, Alaska, Cuba and cruises as well. She is an exception travel agent who is well organized, informative, friendly, and responsible. Nicole will explain all of your travel plans from start to finish and she will make sure you are a satisfied customer. She has a gift for tailoring all trips to meet individual needs. I have to say that I was beyond impressed with her professionalism and would not use another travel agent. Even if you have tons of questions, Nicole will answer them all and she has the patience of an angel. You will be beyond impressed with this travel agent.
