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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cartagena: Isla Baru (Playa Blanca & Aviario Nacional de Colombia). Spend the 26th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. And it doesn't end there: don't miss a visit to San Felipe de Barajas Castle, admire the striking features of Las Bovedas, pause for some serene contemplation at Sanctuary of Saint Peter Claver, and steep yourself in history at Torre del Reloj.

To find more things to do, where to stay, ratings, and other tourist information, you can read our Cartagena trip planner .

In February, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 28°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 1st (Fri) so you can travel back home.
