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'll explore the less-touristy side of things at La Casa del Joyero and Centro Historico. Do some cultural sightseeing at Templo de Santo Domingo and Iglesia de Santo Toribio. Take a break from Cartagena with a short trip to Aviario Nacional de Colombia in Isla Baru, about 50 minutes away. On the 24th (Mon), spend a thrilling day on the water with a speed boat tour. Next up on the itinerary: stroll through Playa de Bocagrande, don't miss a visit to Plaza de La Trinidad, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, and contemplate the long history of Plaza Fernandez Madrid.

In June in Cartagena, expect temperatures between 91°F during the day and 79°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
