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 outdoors at Playa Blanca and Volcan de Lodo El Totumo (Mud Volcano). Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas and Convent of Santa Cruz de la Popa. Spend the 29th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Walled City of Cartagena, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, deepen your understanding at Plaza Santo Domingo, and don't miss a visit to Plaza de los Coches.

To see traveler tips, reviews, where to stay, and more tourist information, use the Cartagena trip site.

If you are flying in from Brazil, the closest major aiports are Rafael Nuñez International Airport and Ernesto Cortissoz International Airport. December in Cartagena sees daily highs of 37°C and lows of 28°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
