I was extremely fortunate to be able to stay in this most wonderful residence during March of 2010. The complex is conveniently located, and is quite one of the most prestigious in Columbia. It was beautifully finished, and furnished to the highest possible standard, with everything you would need to be made to feel special on a vacation in a most exotic and charming city. The staff at the complex, which is a converted monastery, were attentive, and prepared to assist you with anything that you needed. The apartment comes with a most charming and obliging maid, who is available to do shopping, and to make meals for you. The owners were charming and delightful, as well. I only met them once to pick-up a key, and get some interesting information about the locale. Otherwise, they left me alone, and were completely unintrusive. The apartment offers the utmost privacy, and you can spend many relaxed hours by the rooftop pool overlooking the sea.
I cannot recommend this residence highly enough to anyone, or my visit to a most beautiful city. I look forward to returning there in the coming year.

Cartagena is a UNESCO World Heritage Site located on the beautiful Caribbean coastline. Safely protected by a magnificent 500-year-old wall, this city earns its reputation as mystical, magical and spell binding. Colonial architecture, museums, centuries-old forts, cathedrals and pulsating plazas filled with restaurants, impromptu parties, and historic treasures offer an enchanting trip back in time.
Every up-to-date amenity has been seamlessly brought into the old city, so that visitors are never without the comforts and delights of a luxury vacation. The government of Colombia has made Cartagena a safe and exciting vacation destination. (Check out articles in the New York Times, Travel and Leisure, & Town and Country Magazine.)
A walk or candle-lit horse-drawn carriage ride through the cobblestone streets is the best way to experience the rich culture of the city’s history. Superb restaurants, museums, casinos, discos, shops and pulsating park plazas with local folk dancers.
Other Activities: Excursions by boat to Rosario Islands.
