  • You can see the entire museum in less than 20 minutes. At the end of the very small museum is a large emerald jewelry store. Admittedly, there is no pressure to purchase anything.  more »
  • I want to tell you that we visited the Museum of the Emerald. Helpful María Isabel Velasquez, who not only dedicated to broadly explain the origin and process these precious stones but then, with calm and excellent way we advised with time and dedication. It is an excellent choice.

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.
