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.
We've included these beaches for you: Playa Blanca and Centro Cultural Leandro Diaz. Get in touch with nature at Scuba & Snorkeling and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Change things up with these side-trips from Cartagena: Playas de Santa Veronica (in Juan de Acosta) and Isla Baru (Aviario Nacional de Colombia & Playa Puntilla). Next up on the itinerary: explore the historical opulence of Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, contemplate the long history of Walled City of Cartagena, soothe aching muscles at Volcan de Lodo El Totumo (Mud Volcano), and make a trip to Torre del Reloj.

For where to stay, traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Cartagena trip 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. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
