If you wish to experience life in Cartagena as it is, then this is the stay for you. The property is located in the district Torices, and is a 10-minute drive to the airport, and 5 minutes from the historic centre.

Papayal Torices is the perfect district to experience the authentic life in Cartagena, If you are the type of person who would rather experience a country through the eyes of the local as opposed to the everyday tourist then send us a message!

For this price it's a fair deal you get. However the place is a bit too far from the city and you need to take an uber or taxi to get in. The host Leo is super lovely!

Response from Digna:
Thanks for the review Vivienne! Happy to hear you enjoyed Leo's charm! For future visits, we can recommend the 10-minute moto taxi ride into town which costs $2000cop (€0.55) and is a bit of an experience in itself!
