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 out of town with these interesting Cartagena side-trips: Puerto Colombia (Castillo de Salgar & Mormon Temple), Barranquilla (Iglesia de la Inmaculada Concepcion, Zoologico de Barranquilla, & more) and Isla Baru (Playa Blanca, Aviario Nacional de Colombia, & more). There's lots more to do: explore the historical opulence of Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, take in the spiritual surroundings of Convent of Santa Cruz de la Popa, and race across the water with a speed boat tour.

For traveler tips, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Cartagena driving holiday planner.

If you are flying in from Netherlands, the closest major airports are Rafael Nuñez International Airport and Ernesto Cortissoz International Airport. In May, daily temperatures in Cartagena can reach 38°C, while at night they dip to 30°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
