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.
Visit San Felipe de Barajas Castle and Walled City of Cartagena for their historical value. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Mall Plaza El Castillo and Templo de Santo Domingo. Explore Cartagena's surroundings by going to Isla Baru (Aviario Nacional de Colombia & Playa Blanca). There's much more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Iglesia de la Trinidad, stop by Cafeto Cafe y Regalos, choose your vessel at Boats4U, and see the interesting displays at ChocoMuseo.

To find maps, reviews, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Cartagena road trip website .

If you are flying in from El Salvador, the closest major airports are Rafael Nuñez International Airport and Ernesto Cortissoz International Airport. February in Cartagena sees daily highs of 36°C and lows of 28°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
