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 Convent of Santa Cruz de la Popa for their historical value. Do some cultural sightseeing at Caribe Jewelry and Emerald Museum and Museo del Oro Zenu. Spend the 2nd (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Walled City of Cartagena, pause for some serene contemplation at Sanctuary of Saint Peter Claver, see the interesting displays at Museo Historico de Cartagena de Indias, and get the lay of the land with Walking tours.

If you are flying in from Brazil, the closest major airports are Rafael Nuñez International Airport and Ernesto Cortissoz International Airport. In March in Cartagena, expect temperatures between 37°C during the day and 29°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
