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 list of things to see and do now includes El Cielo By Lounge, Caribe Jewelry and Emerald Museum, Torre del Reloj, and other attractions. Kick off your visit on the 24th (Mon): take in the architecture and atmosphere at Sanctuary of Saint Peter Claver, make a trip to Plaza Bolivar, steep yourself in history at Torre del Reloj, contemplate the long history of Plaza Santo Domingo, then see the interesting displays at Caribe Jewelry and Emerald Museum, and finally step into the grandiose world of Castillo San Felipe de Barajas. Keep things going the next day: admire the striking features of Las Bovedas, then enjoy the sand and surf at Playa Blanca, and then contemplate the long history of Walled City of Cartagena.

If you are flying in from Brazil, the closest major airports are Rafael Nuñez International Airport and Ernesto Cortissoz International Airport. In June, plan for daily highs up to 38°C, and evening lows to 30°C. You'll have a few hours on the 26th (Wed) to wrap things up before traveling home.
