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.

There's lots more to do: explore the historical opulence of Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, steep yourself in history at Torre del Reloj, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Sanctuary of Saint Peter Claver.
