Cartagena

The site of the continent's first Spanish colony, Cartagena retains much of its colonial flavor thanks to a World Heritage-listed old town, encircled by old walls and protected by imposing fortresses.
Start off your visit on the 14th (Sat): make a trip to La Popa Monastery, step into the grandiose world of Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Sanctuary of Saint Peter Claver, and finally contemplate the long history of Walled City of Cartagena.

To see maps, more things to do, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the Cartagena trip planner .

In December in Cartagena, expect temperatures between 37°C during the day and 28°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
