You’ll head out of Cartagena on this trip to visit the biggest aviary in Colombia, with a few other sights thrown in, too. Hop aboard the air-conditioned bus, and you’ll be whisked southwards to Baru – a long spit of land poking out from the coastline. Here, you’ll get more than two hours to explore the country’s national aviary, which is home to an A-Z of birds. There are harpy eagles and macaws in the tropical habitat, cardinals and mockingbirds in the desert section, and mountain condors in the Andean area. It’s all designed to make the birds feel at home, so you’ll see waterfalls, palm trees, and mangroves in the different zones. After a spot of lunch, and a trip to the gift shop, you’ll head back to Cartagena for a tour of the Old Town and a photo stop at the mighty San Felipe Fort.
