Visitors to the Caribbean naturally flock to Cartagena. It's not just home to the largest Spanish fort in the Americas- more impressive than Campeche, San Juan, or Havana. It's not just the splendid walled city - designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1984. As much as anything it's the people and culture.
Immerse yourself in Cartagena's captivating and colorful history. Visit the amazing naval museum and imagine yourself an adventurer or better, a buccaneer! Have our delightful concierge, Benjamin, arrange an enchanted back alley tour of the city that will have you begging for more stories of colonial intrigue. Wander and get lost in Cartagena's vibrant streets. Savor an empanada or tropical fruit juice from the many vendors that line the streets. Pay tribute at the Monumento a los Zapatos Viejos and then when you are good and tired, relax in your comfortable and cool apartment!
Everything you need or desire is within short walking distance of your apartment: beautiful colonial buildings and plazas, cafes, pastry shops, terrific restaurants and bars, museums, the wall itself and the fort. A large supermarket, Exito, is just around the corner. The iconic ambassador of Colombian coffee, Juan Valdez, now adds his name to a chain of Juan Valdez Cafes, one of which is located just a block away.
Calle de la Moneda is typically busy and crowded during the day, but wonderfully tranquil and peaceful at night.
It is not necessary, nor is it recommended to have your own car in the Walled City! Walking is definitely the way to explore the area. Taxis abound and are very economical. Be sure to negotiate. You should be able to get around the walled city and surroundings for about 5000 pesos during the day and 6000 pesos at night.
Catch a romantic horse drawn carriage to take you back to the apartment at night.
Benjamin, our delightful, inimitable and ebullient manager, will be on hand to assist you with any and all of your needs. He does not live on the property, but is always accessible. He knows Cartagena like the back of his hand.
