Cartagena, ColombiaEnjoy your first port of call on your Caribbean cruise with a stop at Cartagena.

Perhaps you’ll visit the Ciudad Amurallada—the city’s historic walled city and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Stroll the Plaza Bolívar. Visit the Convento de la Popa (literally, “Convent of the Stern”), founded in 1607 at the highest point in the city. Take a ride by horse-drawn carriage. Or head instead to one of Cartagena’s many beaches. The best-known of these, Playa Blanca, is considered one of the finest beaches in the country.
