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.
When in Cartagena, make a side trip to see Playa Blanca in Isla Baru, approximately Isla Baru away. And it doesn't end there: step into the grandiose world of Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, get some thrills on the water with a speed boat tour, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Convent of Santa Cruz de la Popa, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Sanctuary of Saint Peter Claver.

To find where to stay, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Cartagena trip itinerary builder website .

If you are flying in from Chile, the closest major aiports are Rafael Nuñez International Airport and Ernesto Cortissoz International Airport. In January, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
