Manzanillo del Mar, Cartagena

1.0
#5 of 6 in Beaches in Cartagena District
Experience authentic Caribbean Colombia at Manzanillo del Mar, a peaceful beach in a working-class neighborhood. Those looking for modern tourist attractions may be in for a disappointment, as this relatively underdeveloped village offers few amenities. Restrooms aren't what most Westerners are used to, and many restaurants are simply wooden shacks. To visit Manzanillo del Mar on your trip to Cartagena, use our Cartagena day trip tool .

  • I was pleasantly surprised! A very quiet beach, clean, little peddling, rent you tents for reasonable price, you have close to carulla if you need something, you can have lunch on the Beach also, sea is quiet, perfect for the kids, the only thing that is a shower nearby.

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.
