  • It is located within the walled city. It has lovely arches. It retains even embellishments and colonial forms.

  • I was in Cartagena this weekend and I was saddened to see the flooded garbage Bocagrande Beach, I think that the one who rented tents must include a container or garbage bag, so tourists are throwing garbage. At night they clean, but on the day it is a depressing spectacle. Also came out sick for those who rent jet skis make it on top of the bather, unsettling and polluting, think that they should locate in certain parts to avoid turns up the tourist.

  • Alcalde... good afternoon! I frequently visit to Cartagena and do with my spouse and guests tours of the walled city. He commented that every I going find more neglected, an infinity of aqueduct and tops records that do not exist or are in poor condition constituting traps for passers-by. Tracks and we see them decline and will soon be impassable. What about the entrance to the plaza Santa Teresa, is shameful. Mr. Mayor, is the recovery of the Corralito de Piedra, which is pride of all Colombians.

  • Dear Mayor: I was born in Cartagena and I live in the United States many years ago. I visited the fantastic recently and enjoy recalling every corner, this beautiful but very embarrassed see garbage on the floor everywhere. Cartagena many tourists from around the world visit it and insurance is returned with the same disappointment than I. Walk in the Center looking for a waste to throw away my trash and could find "only one and full", after half an hour. A city so beautiful and tourist as it is, should have a trash basket in each corner to prevent that people throw their dirt everywhere. I tried to be a good citizen and I took my time but there will be others who will not import them. It is the duty of all keep the city clean but also is the duty of the Mayor's office help and provide with wastebaskets. If I saw that there were signs to promote the cleaning but not a basket available. Invite him to walk the city centre and you notice yourself! Thank you for your great work.

Where to stay in Cartagena

Despite its status as a major tourist hub, Cartagena offers a good choice of affordable places to stay. If you're looking to splurge, consider staying at one of the town's restored colonial-era buildings, which now house boutique hotels packed with modern amenities. Alternatively, several old monasteries in Cartagena's walled colonial district offer outstanding facilities at very high prices. Budget-conscious travelers can explore the many mid-range hotels and low-cost hostels clustered in Getsemani, an up-and-coming neighborhood and center of the backpacker scene.
