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.
Take a break from Cartagena with a short trip to Playa Blanca in Isla Baru, about 1h 05 min away. The adventure continues: step into the grandiose world of Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, make a trip to Plaza Bolivar, contemplate the long history of Torre del Reloj, and get engrossed in the history at Museo del Oro Zenu.

For traveler tips, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Cartagena trip itinerary planner .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Rafael Nuñez International Airport and Ernesto Cortissoz International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 88°F in January, and nighttime lows around 75°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
