Bogota

— 7 nights

Athens of South America

Colombia's heart and soul, Bogota has earned the nickname "Athens of South America" thanks to its abundance of universities, libraries, and lower-level schools.
Do your shopping at Barrio La Candelaria and DIBS by Culture Shock Colombia. Let the collections at Gold Museum (Museo del Oro) and Museo del siglo XIX capture your imagination. Explore Bogota's surroundings by going to Centro Comercial Cento Chia (in Chia), Cafe & Guitarra (in Tabio) and Catedral de Sal de Zipaquira (in Zipaquira). Next up on the itinerary: kick back and relax at Laguna de Guatavita, explore the galleries of Galeria La Cometa, take in the exciting artwork at Galeria AMEB, and buy something for everyone on your list at Multiplaza Bogota.

Cartagena

— 7 nights

City of Heroes

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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore NH Galeria and San Lazaro Distrito de Artes. Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas and Torre del Reloj will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with a short trip to Playa Blanca in Isla Baru (about 1h 5 min away). Spend the 4th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Walled City of Cartagena, browse for treasures at Anticuario El Arcon, buy something for everyone on your list at Multicentro La Plazuela, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Convent of Santa Cruz de la Popa.
