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 Museo Naval Del Caribe and Naval Museum of the Caribbean. Take a break from the city and head to Aviario Nacional de Colombia and Playa Blanca. And it doesn't end there: explore the historical opulence of San Felipe de Barajas Castle, contemplate the long history of Walled City of Cartagena, tour the water at your own pace with Boats4U, and see the interesting displays at Galeon Bucanero.

If you are flying in from Costa Rica, the closest major airports are Rafael Nuñez International Airport and Ernesto Cortissoz International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 37°C in November, and nighttime lows around 30°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
