Cartagena, Colombia — 4 nights

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.
Take a break from Cartagena with a short trip to Oceanario in Islas de Rosario, about 1h 35 min away. There's much more to do: step into the grandiose world of Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, take in the spiritual surroundings of Convent of Santa Cruz de la Popa, and don't miss a visit to Plaza Santo Domingo.
