Cartagena — 4 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.
You've now added Sibarita Del Mar to your itinerary. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas and Convent of Santa Cruz de la Popa. Get some cultural insight at Scuba & Snorkeling and Sanctuary of Saint Peter Claver. Venture out of the city with trips to Isla Baru (Aviario Nacional de Colombia & Playa Blanca). There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Walled City of Cartagena, make a trip to Monumento a los Zapatos Viejos, view the masterpieces at Nara Antique Decoraciones, and get engrossed in the history at Museo del Oro Zenu.
