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.
Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas and Convent of Santa Cruz de la Popa are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Playa Blanca and Centro Cultural Leandro Diaz. Get out of town with these interesting Cartagena side-trips: Isla Baru (Aviario Nacional de Colombia & Playa Puntilla) and Playas de Santa Veronica (in Juan de Acosta). There's much more to do: take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, contemplate the long history of Walled City of Cartagena, soothe aching muscles at Volcan de Lodo El Totumo (Mud Volcano), and deepen your understanding at Plaza Santo Domingo.

To see where to stay, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, go to the Cartagena travel route planner.

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major aiports are Rafael Nuñez International Airport and Ernesto Cortissoz International Airport. In March, daily temperatures in Cartagena can reach 37°C, while at night they dip to 29°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
