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.
Get some cultural insight at Templo de Santo Domingo and Centro Historico. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Playa Puntilla and Miramar Beach Club. Explore Cartagena's surroundings by going to Iglesia de la Inmaculada Concepcion (in Barranquilla) and Castillo de Salgar (in Puerto Colombia). There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, steep yourself in history at Walled City of Cartagena, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Catherine of Alexandria Cathedral, and appreciate the history behind La Gorda Gertrudis.

For maps, other places to visit, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the Cartagena holiday maker site .

If you are flying in from Argentina, the closest major airports are Rafael Nuñez International Airport and Ernesto Cortissoz International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 36°C in January, and nighttime lows around 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
