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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Scuba & Snorkeling and Castillo San Felipe de Barajas. Take a break from the city and head to Playa Blanca and Aviario Nacional de Colombia. Spend the 2nd (Thu) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. On the 6th (Mon), spend a thrilling day on the water with a speed boat tour. The adventure continues: get engrossed in the history at Museo del Oro Zenu, see the interesting displays at Caribe Jewelry and Emerald Museum, don't miss a visit to Plaza Bolivar, and steep yourself in history at Torre del Reloj.

In December, daytime highs in Cartagena are 37°C, while nighttime lows are 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
