Cartagena

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.
Do your shopping at Dantas Store and Bojanini Art Gallery. Relax by the water at Playa Blanca and Miramar Beach Club. Get out of town with these interesting Cartagena side-trips: Centro Comercial Buenavista (in Barranquilla) and Aviario Nacional de Colombia (in Isla Baru). There's much more to do: step into the grandiose world of Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, take an in-depth tour of Museo del Oro Zenu, head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, and admire the landmark architecture of Las Bovedas.

For maps, reviews, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Cartagena road trip tool .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Rafael Nuñez International Airport and Ernesto Cortissoz International Airport. In October in Cartagena, expect temperatures between 90°F during the day and 78°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
