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.
Get some cultural insight at Templo de Santo Domingo and Boats4U. Step out of the city life by going to Aviario Nacional de Colombia and Speed Boats Tours. Go for a jaunt from Cartagena to Isla Baru to see Playa Blanca about 1h 05 min away. Spend the 7th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. On the 21st (Thu), spend a cool day on the water with Veleros Colombia. Next up on the itinerary: explore the historical opulence of San Felipe de Barajas Castle, make a trip to Centro de Convenciones Cartagena de Indias, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Sanctuary of Saint Peter Claver, and steep yourself in history at Walled City of Cartagena.

To see other places to visit, traveler tips, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Cartagena sightseeing planner .
