Cable cars pass overhead as a family takes an ice cream break in Cartagena's Santo Domingo neighborhood. A key Caribbean port of the Spanish Main from the 16th to 18th centuries, Cartagena is perhaps the finest colonial city in the Western Hemisphere and was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984.
