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.
Get out of town with these interesting Cartagena side-trips: Club Playa Guacamaya (in La Boquilla), Barranquilla (Bojanini Art Gallery, Killa Party abis, & more) and Isla Baru (Playa Blanca, Aviario Nacional de Colombia, & more). The adventure continues: step into the grandiose world of Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, admire the landmark architecture of Las Bovedas, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Convent of Santa Cruz de la Popa.

To see more things to do, where to stay, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Cartagena tour itinerary website .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Rafael Nuñez International Airport and Ernesto Cortissoz International Airport. In December, plan for daily highs up to 89°F, and evening lows to 76°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
