We stayed at the Radisson close to our friends who have a condo in La Boquilla. The hotel had a great pool overlooking La Boquilla beach. Although it wasn’t the beach we are all use to, and it was quite the experience to pay the locals for a beach chair, we truly enjoyed the warm water and the amazing sunsets.

We spent most of our time in El Puebloviejo, the old town. Here we discovered great shopping on the streets and I went craxy for the Pompom sandals and colorful Muchala’s. My favorite shops where CASA CHIQUI and ST. DOMS.

We had delicious food at notable restaurants such as Alma, and I can honestly say I had the best gelato ever at crepes and waffles next to the Argentine restaurant Quebracho. We truly couldn’t get enough of the old town with its historic architecture, museums, horse carriage rides and great art.

We ventured out to San Felipe de Barajas Castle where we had an amazing tour guide give us all the history on Cartagena and got to go through amazing tunnels and some breathtaking views of the city.

Our favorite day trips where to the 7 islands. We soaked up the sun and sea with the ultimate chill-out session in Manajagua in the Rosario Islands. Let Cartagena’s brilliant Caribbean archipelago be your world class oyster with a day trip to a laid-back, family-orientated beach resort that will more than live up to your Caribbean fantasies of platinum sands and crystalline waters.
