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.
Appreciate the collections at Galeon Bucanero and Museo Naval Del Caribe. Get a sense of the local culture at Templo de Santo Domingo and Walled City of Cartagena. Venture out of the city with trips to Isla Baru (Aviario Nacional de Colombia & Playa Blanca). There's lots more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Iglesia de la Trinidad, explore the historical opulence of Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, don't miss a visit to Centro de Convenciones Cartagena de Indias, and contemplate the long history of Plaza Santo Domingo.

If you are flying in from Costa Rica, the closest major aiports are Rafael Nuñez International Airport and Ernesto Cortissoz International Airport. In November, plan for daily highs up to 37°C, and evening lows to 30°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
