    A Convention Center designed and very well distributed. Very broad areas of exhibitions and auditoriums varied expandable rooms, rooms small, in order to please everyone.

    It has good spaces and the place is very comfortable and modern. I did not like the form of separation to oblige to spend all you people for exposure.

    This is an excellent, well run conference centre with friendly, helpful staff. A great venue for a large conference, with many smaller seminar rooms.

    One of the most representative places of Cartagena. Excelent view with a bay having small vessels floating to its side.

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.
