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.
Castillo San Felipe de Barajas and Convent of Santa Cruz de la Popa are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get outdoors at Playa Blanca and Volcan de Lodo El Totumo (Mud Volcano). Spend the 29th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of Walled City of Cartagena, gain insight at Plaza Santo Domingo, don't miss a visit to Plaza de los Coches, and admire the striking features of Las Bovedas.

For maps, other places to visit, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Cartagena holiday planning app .

If you are flying in from Brazil, the closest major airports are Rafael Nuñez International Airport and Ernesto Cortissoz International Airport. In December, daily temperatures in Cartagena can reach 37°C, while at night they dip to 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
