Running through the veins of Cartagena is the colour, music and colour of Afro-Caribbean culture. Blend this with the grandeur of the city’s colonial past, and you have a destination that will capture your imagination. Colonial mansions in all the colours of the rainbow preside over cobbled streets, many stylishly refurbished into boutique hotels, gourmet restaurants and contemporary art galleries. There is no end to the personal experiences we can design for you in this diverse and creative city, from cooking classes to special-access art tours.
Cartagena is a springboard for further exploration of the Caribbean. Travel 50 miles over the turquoise ocean, and you will encounter the Islas del Rosario. This archipelago is teeming with kaleidoscopic reefs, secret coves and languid settlements untouched by mass tourism. We work with a handful of private houses in Islas del Rosario – homes that define the magic of barefoot luxury. If you combine the vibrance of Cartagena with the laid-back tranquillity of Islas del Rosario, you will achieve a near-perfect beach holiday in Colombia.
