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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Cartagena: Isla Baru (Playa Blanca & Aviario Nacional de Colombia). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Castillo San Felipe de Barajas, get outside with THalaSa Boat Trips, steep yourself in history at Walled City of Cartagena, and browse the different shops at Mall Plaza El Castillo.

To see photos, where to stay, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our Cartagena journey planner .

If you are flying in from Uruguay, the closest major airports are Rafael Nuñez International Airport and Ernesto Cortissoz International Airport. In June in Cartagena, expect temperatures between 38°C during the day and 30°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Sun) so you can travel back home.
