Cartagena ©
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 outdoors at Boats4U and Playa Blanca. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Templo de Santo Domingo and Plaza Santo Domingo. Take a break from Cartagena with a short trip to Oceanario in Islas de Rosario, about 2h 30 min away. The adventure continues: don't miss a visit to Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Convent of Santa Cruz de la Popa, get engrossed in the history at Museo del Oro Zenu, and admire the striking features of St. Catherine of Alexandria Cathedral.
