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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Sibarita Del Mar. Family-friendly places like Playa Blanca and Oceanario will thrill your kids. Change things up with a short trip to Aviario Nacional de Colombia in Isla Baru (about 50 minutes away). There's much more to do: make a trip to Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, admire the landmark architecture of Las Bovedas, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Sanctuary of Saint Peter Claver.

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 89°F in November, and nighttime lows around 78°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
