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.
You've now added Sibarita Del Mar to your itinerary. Step out of Cartagena to go to Isla Baru and see Playa Blanca, which is approximately 1h 05 min away. There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Convent of Santa Cruz de la Popa, don't miss a visit to Las Bovedas, step into the grandiose world of Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, and contemplate the long history of Torre del Reloj.

For reviews, other places to visit, maps, and tourist information, read Cartagena trip planner.
