Cartagena Sightseeing: Hop on an air-conditioned bus to explore Cartagena, once a prime target for pirates and Spanish treasure. The city, guarded by an imposing fortress, gained a reputation as unconquerable. The "new" town thrived from 1533 to 1811. Led by an English-speaking guide, witness splendid Republican architecture. Capture the restored elegance of Manga's mansions. Pause for a photo at the 17th-century San Felipe de Barajas Fort, hailed as Latin America's foremost Spanish military feat. Visit the Inquisition Palace at Simon Bolivar Square. Explore the Church of San Pedro Claver and Old City's quaint streets. Savor local snacks and Colombian coffee en route, before returning to the ship.
