Some info about Cartagena de Indias:
Declared part of the UNESCO World Heritage in 1984, Cartagena encapsulates all the charm of Spanish colonial architecture, the republic period and today, the attractions of intense night-life, cultural festivals, exotic scenery, superb beaches, wonderful food and a wide offer of hotels and tourist infrastructure.

Walk the streets, look at the Spanish colonial buildings – the Palace of the Inquisition, the Clock-Tower and the Castle of San Felipe de Barajas; enjoy the soft, warm breezes as you pass through the squares and plazas.

  • Muy cómoda, limpia y bien ubicada la habitación. Esta ubicada en un muy buen sitio de la ciudad y a pesar de ser una habitación es totalmente independiente, lo que nos pareció muy bueno. John excelente anfitrión.

  • John (email hidden). He was there for us. On the first day he took us for a walk to show us around and made recommendations what to do and how to get to places we wanted to visit. His house has a perfect location and the room that we rented gave us a lot of privacy. He stored us suitcase for 3 days and even allow us to use his shower after we came back from Playa Blanca. Thank you John. It was nice to meet you and your wife. See you one day. I recommend him highly.

  • We had a fantastic stay with John and his family. The room was perfect - big clean and cool. Super easy to get to the beach and a quick 5min taxi ride into the old town. John and his family were really friendly and gave us lots of advice for wondering, food and avoiding the rip off areas. Really good value for a private room in the area!

  • John (email hidden)- very friendly and very informative. He suggested a lot of great places to go in the neighborhood. The apartment was clean and comfortable and I love the location. Supermarket is only 2 blocks away, the beach is about 3-4 blocks away, and there are a lot of great restaurants, shops, and stores in the area. I would definitely stay here again.

  • I had a great stay at John's place. The room is simple, yet very comfortable. It also seems be within walking distance of everything in Bocagrande. In addition, John, the host, was very welcoming and helped me navigate Cartagena. I will definitely stay again.

  • The room was excellent! It had everything we (website hidden) fridge, aircon and TV. The shower didn't have water but trust me when I say that you don't need hot water, the cooler water is a god send after spending a day in the heat of Cartagena!
    John was great! He helped us out with everything from where we should eat, how much we should pay fe taxis and he called up our various bookings to confirm everything with them - which was great as we spoke very limited spanish. Thanks John!

  • Absolutely wonderful stay. John is a gentleman and was so accommodating. Great location, a few blocks from the beach and a short cab ride to downtown. John let me use the room for the full day on my last day as he didn't have another guest arriving. WIFI was super fast incase you need to work while there. Juan Valdez a few blocks away incase you want a change of scene to work.

Ingeniero de sistemas, me gusta el mar, navegar en lancha y visitar las islas del Rosario, ver el hermoso color azul del mar, las playas de arena cristalina y un blanco marfil. Disfrutar de un romántico atardecer por la playa o caminar por la bahía con mi familia. Salir a la ciudad amurallada y ver su mágica arquitectura disfrutando de su cultura, los bailes típicos en los diferentes escenarios, la música te llenara de energía para continuar las noches misteriosas y calurosas de Cartagena. Mis destinos favoritos en Colombia son, zona cafetera y el parque natural Tayrona ubicado en Santa Marta, pero... aún hay mucho que descubrir. Personalmente prefiero el frío al calor pero Cartagena... me encanta, porque a pesar del clima... es una ciudad mágica.
