Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the historical opulence of Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Sanctuary of Saint Peter Claver, steep yourself in history at Walled City of Cartagena, and get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Oceanario.
