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 a short trip to Playa Blanca in Isla Baru (about 1h 05 min away). Next up on the itinerary: step into the grandiose world of Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, take in the spiritual surroundings of Convent of Santa Cruz de la Popa, steep yourself in history at Walled City of Cartagena, and get engrossed in the history at Museo del Oro Zenu.

In July, daytime highs in Cartagena are 91°F, while nighttime lows are 78°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
