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.
Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas and Convent of Santa Cruz de la Popa will appeal to history buffs. Let the collections at Caribe Jewelry Museum & Factory and Museo Naval Del Caribe capture your imagination. Venture out of the city with trips to Isla Baru (Playa Blanca & Aviario Nacional de Colombia). There's still lots to do: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, examine the collection at Choco Museo, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and steep yourself in history at Torre del Reloj.

To find ratings, more things to do, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Cartagena trip itinerary builder site.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major aiports are Rafael Nuñez International Airport and Ernesto Cortissoz International Airport. In July in Cartagena, expect temperatures between 91°F during the day and 78°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
