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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Iglesia de la Trinidad and Museo Naval Del Caribe. Do some cultural sightseeing at Scuba & Snorkeling and San Felipe de Barajas Castle. Go for a jaunt from Cartagena to Isla Baru to see Playa Blanca about 1h 05 min away. There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Templo de Santo Domingo, steep yourself in history at Plaza Santo Domingo, don't miss a visit to Plaza de la Aduana, and admire the landmark architecture of St. Catherine of Alexandria Cathedral.

To see ratings, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, use the Cartagena vacation site .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Rafael Nuñez International Airport and Ernesto Cortissoz International Airport. In April in Cartagena, expect temperatures between 90°F during the day and 79°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 23rd (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
