Cartagena

— 4 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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Barrio Getsemani and Iglesia de la Trinidad. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Centro Historico and Centro de Convenciones Cartagena de Indias. There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Catedral Santa Catalina de Alejandria, ponder the world of politics at Alcaldia Mayor, tour the pleasant surroundings at Playa de Bocagrande, and make a trip to Plaza de San Pedro Claver.
