Cartagena

— 7 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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas and Walled City of Cartagena. Visiting Playa Blanca and Boats4U will get you outdoors. Change things up with a short trip to Oceanario in Islas de Rosario (about 1h 35 min away). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Templo de Santo Domingo, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Iglesia de la Trinidad, don't miss a visit to Plaza de la Aduana, and steep yourself in history at Sanctuary of Saint Peter Claver.
