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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Isla Baru (Playa Blanca & Aviario Nacional de Colombia). And it doesn't end there: don't miss a visit to Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, take in the spiritual surroundings of Convent of Santa Cruz de la Popa, contemplate the long history of Torre del Reloj, and see the interesting displays at Caribe Jewelry Museum & Factory.

For maps, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read our Cartagena day trip planning website.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major aiports are Rafael Nuñez International Airport and Ernesto Cortissoz International Airport. November in Cartagena sees daily highs of 89°F and lows of 78°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
