Cartagena is an incredible city. In fact, Colombia is an incredible country and its citizens are friendly and unassuming. Spanish is not a must, but is extremely helpful.
The film, Love in the Time of Cholera was filmed in Cartagena; years back, Romancing the Stone.
The old walled city allows one to wander for days, viewing incredible architecture, world class shopping and great restaurants. To get a feel for the real Colombia, visit the old city and surrounding areas. To the west (by boat) you will find an island chain that has incredible aqua marine water, perfect for snorkeling or just boating. Many tour operators run to the islands or you can do as I do and rent a boat and leisurely cruise the islands and visit a variety of beaches (Playa Grande, Rosario Islands).
I was fortunate several years back to visit Cartagena with natives of Colombia. I was enchanted not only by Cartagena, but by other cities I visited, including Bogota. A visit to Cartagena and a stay in my condominium/apartment will allow you to relax and return home with stories to tell. You will be compelled to return as soon and often as you can.
Should you stay in my unit, I will provide as much insight as I can about Cartagena, the surrounding community, the building and my unit.
The unit is not restricted to adults (although that is my preference) however, Cartagena is probably more for adults than children. I require photo id in the form of drivers license and passports from all occupants. As I rent my unit frequently, payment is due upon the making of reservation; minimum 5 days rental (for near term booking, will now rent for shorter terms - inquire). Access to unit is via a keypad lock on door, combination provided within 2 weeks of arrival.
Others who rent in this building will rent to up to 9 people in a unit. I limit my unit to a maximum of 4 responsible individuals, no large families. I cater primarily to travelers from Europe, Canada, United States (where I live), Panama and Mexico.
note: Unit capacity is 4. This applies to both those listed clients on my security authorization and guests, friends, relatives that you may wish to come over and this maximum applies not only to my unit but to the common areas as well, including the pool. This modification is made March, 2019 because I have recently have had guests who have either brought over or attempted to bring over family staying at other apartments/hotels or otherwise travelling to visit. Over 4 in my unit takes it over my preferred capacity and usage and as well, administration rules related to the common areas and pools. I currently pay Palmetto a fee each time a group rents my apartment and as well a per person fee on top of that, a fee dependent upon whether I have 1, guest, 2, 3 or 4. If you wish to have a big get together with others who are in town or just travelling to Cartagena for the day, I suggest that you use the large beach in front of Palmetto.
I look forward to hearing from you. (720--257-3293)
