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.
For shopping fun, head to Plaza Bocagrande Centro Comercial or Cafeto Cafe y Regalos. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Aviario Nacional de Colombia and Boats4U. Step out of Cartagena with an excursion to Playa Blanca in Isla Baru--about 1h 5 min away. There's lots more to do: explore the historical opulence of Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Templo de Santo Domingo, contemplate the long history of Plaza Santo Domingo, and pause for some serene contemplation at Iglesia de la Trinidad.

To see where to stay, photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, go to the Cartagena online trip builder.

If you are flying in from El Salvador, the closest major aiports are Rafael Nuñez International Airport and Ernesto Cortissoz International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 36°C in February, and nighttime lows around 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
