What you can expect

Turn the southeastern coast of Spain into your playground during a private tour to Cabo de Palos and Cartagena. Admire the ocean's endless crashing waves from a scenic perch near the Faro Cabo de Palos and learn about Cartagena's history as a defensive seaport during an intriguing city tour.

Get picked up from your hotel and head east toward the resort destination of Cabo de Palos near the Mar Menor. Cruise past sun-bleached buildings and glimpse spits of blue-green sea on the way to a spectacular viewpoint. At the lighthouse, explore the rugged coast and gaze north toward the spot where the Mar Menor meets the swirling Mediterranean Sea. Before venturing to Cartagena, your guide gets you closer to La Manga, so you can drink in sights of the picturesque spit formed over centuries by aggressive ocean currents.

On the return to Cartagena, pause at the Museo Castillo Concepción and the Centro de Interpretación de la Muralla Púnica to immerse yourself in the extensive history of the region. Learn that Cartagena has served as a defensive city for much of its existence, with its roots in the 3rd century. Finally, chat with your guide about the additional sites you wish to visit. Your attentive host leads you into the heart of the city, suggests a fantastic spot for lunch, and unlocks the remaining treasures you wish to explore.
