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.
Cartagena is known for historic sites, museums, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: step into the grandiose world of Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, examine the collection at Caribe Jewelry Museum & Factory, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Oceanario, and contemplate the long history of Torre del Reloj.

The Route module shows you all the different ways you can get to Cartagena. In December in Cartagena, expect temperatures between 37°C during the day and 28°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sat) so you can travel to Isla Baru.
