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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas as well as Media Luna Terrace. Popular historic sites such as Barrio Getsemani and Centro Historico are in your itinerary. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Choco Museo and La Casa del Joyero. And it doesn't end there: join in the after-dark buzz at Boundless Mezcal Cafe, don't miss a visit to Plaza de La Trinidad, get engrossed in the history at Museo del Oro Zenu, and steep yourself in history at Baluarte de San Francisco Javier.
