Interaction with Guests
If you are interested in a cultural exchange trip, this is the place to stay!! I'll be so happy to show you more about our culture, food and traditions.
Bocagrande has the most popular beaches in Cartagena. After the city center I would say this is one of the main touristic sectors. Here you can find the luxury hotels, the most delicious restaurants, shopping malls and casinos. We are located at the beginning of Bocagrande sector so here you can easily have access to the rest of Bocagrande and to the beautiful City Center (Walking distance to both)
You won't have to spend much money in transport since we are located between Bocagrande and the city center (la ciudad amurallada). Walking distance to the main turistic attractions. However if you need public transport, just in front of the building you can easily catch busses or taxis. We have some trustful taxi drivers that we can recommend you.

Rocio was a very nice host and the apartment was nice, spacious and clean. Rocio was available to speak with us over the phone and Whatsapp and booked our transportation to Santa Marta. The location is a bit further from the Old City then we expected - It is a nice walk during the day, but we took a taxi home at night just to be safe. Overall, a nice a experience.
Muy buena elección. El departamento está muy bien ubicado, en una zona segura, al lado de un supermercado y una plaza comercial muy bella con vista al mar. Caminando se llega en unos minutos al centro histórico, lo cual es imperdible! Atrás del departamento hay playas públicas y caminando un poco más sobre la bahía encuentras playas un poquito más tranquilas. Los anfitriones son muy amables y con gusto te asesoran en la logística para moverte dentro de la ciudad y hacia el aeropuerto. El baño y la habitación muy limpios.
FUE JUNTO CON MI ESPOSA LA PRIMERA EXPERIENCIA EN ALQUILAR UN CUARTO CON BAÑO. SI BIEN ROCIO NO ESTABA EN EL APARTAMENTO- AUNQUE VIA MAIL ESTABA PENDIENTE DE MI ESTADIA - SI ESTABA SU MAMA MARINA Y SU HERMANO ALFONZO QUE HAN SIDO MUY HOSPITALARIOS Y ESTAMOS MUY AGRADECIDOS A ELLOS POR NUESTRA ESTANCIA.
LA HABITACION ES MUY COMODA CON AIRE ACONDICIONADO, EL BAÑO ESTABA CRUZANDO UN PASILLO Y ERA DE USO EXCLUSIVO PARA NOSOTROS.
COMO TIENEN UN HOTEL DE LAS 6 NOCHES COMPARTIERON CON NOSOTROS LA PRIMERA Y LA ULTIMA POR LO CUAL PRACTICAMENTE NOS DIERON LA POSIBILIDAD DE UTILIZAR SU CASA COMO SI ESTUVIERAMOS EN LA NUESTRA. IGUALMENTE SIEMPRE NOS MANTUVIMOS COMUNICADOS DIARIAMENTE POR WATTS APP. NOS OFRECIERON GUARDAR ALIMENTOS EN LA HELADERA, USAR EL LAVARROPAS, POSEE UNA VISTA HERMOSA DESDE LA HABITACION Y DESDE EL BALCON QUE ESTA EN EL COMEDOR. TIENE UN SUPERMERCADO AL LADO CON LO CUAL ES MUY FACIL LA COMPRA DE ALIMENTOS.
TAMBIEN NOS OFRECIERON EL FILTRO DE AGUA CON LO CUAL NO ERA NECESARIA LA COMPRA DE AGUA MINERAL.
ESTA UBICADO AL INGRESO DEL SECTOR BOCAGRANDE EN UN LUGAR IDEAL INTERMEDIO PARA VISITAR LA CIUDAD HISTORICA UNOS 10 MINUTOS A PIE Y TAMBIEN SE PUEDE LLEGAR A PIE PARA CONOCER TODO BOCAGRANDE , EL LAGUITO Y CASTILLOGRANDE EN UNA CAMINATA DE APROX. 30 MINUTOS. A NOSOTROS NOS ENCANTA CAMINAR POR LA PLAYA Y POR LA COSTANERA DE LA BAHIA DE CASTILLOGRANDE Y BOCAGRANDE. LUGAR SUPERSEGURO CON MUY BUENA VIGILANCIA EN EL EDIFICO LAS 24 HORAS.
QUEREMOS AGRADECER MUY ESPECIALMENTE LA COMPAÑIA DE ALFONZO Y SU MAMA MARINA QUE LA NOCHE ANTERIOR A PARTIR NOS OFRECIERON UNA CENA QUE ESTUVO RIQUISMA. NOS AGRADO MUCHO SU COMPAÑIA. LUGAR RECOMENDADO
Wow... where to even begin about what a wonderful experience I had staying with Rocio? So I never actually met her (she travels a lot to Bogotá for work), but her two lovely sisters were staying in the apartment and we could along wonderfully - and if Rocio is anything like her sisters (which, from our interactions, I have no doubt of), you're in good hands! As hosts they made me feel completely welcome and even invited me to hang out with them and their friends (which was really nice because I came as a solo traveler). Apartment-wise, the location is perfect - there's a supermarket literally right next to her apartment and you can't get any more convenient than that. The Bocagrande beach strip and famed walled city are very walkable as well. You have your own private toilet, and there was a domestic helper in the apartment who came in to clean both the bathroom and bedroom, and even washed my clothes for a little fee so that was really nice. I had the best time in Cartagena because of them - thank you so much and DEFINITELY stay with Rocio!!
Rocio and Marina (her mother) welcomed me completely during my week stay with them in Cartagena. I was also battling the flu during this time and Marina very kindly made ginger tea for me several times!
The accommodations are very clean, well located in Bocogrande, and in easy (and pleasant) walking distance to the beach, the Old City and Getsemani. When I return to Cartagena I hope to stay with Rocio and Marina again. Many thanks for a perfect trip!
What an awesome location!!!! We were walking distance to everything! Rosio couldn't be there because she had work in Bogota but her mom and her friend Enith took such good care of us. Rosio and her sister Nicole checked in with my friend and I via (website hidden) so it was as if they were there as well. They gave us pointers in what to do and sites to see which were very helpful. When we arrived her mom and Enith prepared lunch for us which we thought was sooo nice! It felt as if we were at home. They made us feel very comfortable. The room was very clean and the perfect size for two people. The view from the room the nice as well! I would highly recommend Rosio's apt!
Rocio is the best. She was away for work while I was in the apartment, but we communicated daily, some times many times a day. She was extremely present and helpful. She has many connections and is able to help visitors arrange trips and tours as desired. Her mom and assistant are sweet and helpful as well.
As mentioned in other reviews, the apartment is just outside the old city - a 10-15 minute walk or a $3 taxi ride. The beach is right there as well and offers an easy way to spend the hot mornings/early afternoons.
