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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Cartagena: Isla Baru (Playa Blanca, Aviario Nacional de Colombia, &more), Club Playa Guacamaya (in La Boquilla) and Barranquilla (Bojanini Art Gallery, Killa Party abis, &more). There's much more to do: make a trip to Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, get engrossed in the history at Museo del Oro Zenu, take in the spiritual surroundings of Convent of Santa Cruz de la Popa, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Sanctuary of Saint Peter Claver.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, use the Cartagena visit planner.
