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.
Popular historic sites such as San Felipe de Barajas Castle and Plaza Santo Domingo are in your itinerary. Get some cultural insight at Museo del Oro Zenu and Walled City of Cartagena. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cartagena: Isla Baru (Playa Blanca & Aviario Nacional de Colombia). Spend the 28th (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. On the 31st (Tue), spend a thrilling day on the water with a speed boat tour. There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Templo de Santo Domingo, examine the collection at Caribe Jewelry and Emerald Museum, view the masterpieces at NH Galeria, and contemplate the long history of Torre del Reloj.
