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.
Escape the urban bustle at Aviario Nacional de Colombia and Playa Puntilla. Step off the beaten path and head to Barrio Getsemani and Templo de Santo Domingo. Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the long history of Centro Historico, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Sanctuary of Saint Peter Claver, don't miss a visit to Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, and admire the striking features of St. Catherine of Alexandria Cathedral.

In January, daytime highs in Cartagena are 88°F, while nighttime lows are 75°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 20th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
