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. Eat street food! Have a tropical juice from fresh squeezed zapote or mamey! And then when you are good and tired, pay tribute at the Monumento a los Zapatos Viejos, or better yet, escape the hustle and bustle in your comfortable and cool apartment!
Everything you need or desire is within short walking distance of your apartment. A large supermarket, Exito, is just around the corner from the apartment. 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.
Beautiful colonial buildings and plazas, cafes, pastry shops, terrific restaurants and bars, museums, the wall itself and the fort - All are within walking distance of your apartment.
The neighborhood is typically busy and crowded during the day, but very tranquil and peaceful at night, as there are no bars and restaurants lining our street.
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.
