The pool is clean, big and heated! I loved it. Our room was spacious with good wifi signal and comfortable bed. It also had a balcony. I really appreciated that the a/c was always on (not dependent on whether we were in the room) so it was already cool when we entered. The staff was friendly and informative. Yes, it is a bit away from the walled city (10min drive), but taxis are cheap ($6,000 COP). The shower had good pressure and hot water.

... atmosphere, wonderful hot Caribbean climate and good cheap local beer and food. Bad points: the old town is now surrounded by a huge modern city / building site not much smaller than Manchester with very little charm except for the novelty of it being in South America. It's been necessary to start in a big city but my own highlights of this trip are going to be the small local towns and parts where there are no people at all. Oh, and on the personal list: ...
... many casualties. Once the soldiers did hit the ground to attack the fortress they took a beating, then they all got very ill. Malaria, and amoebic dysentery actually won the battle for the Spaniards. De Lazo died some years later of disease, and his burial location is still unknown. It was hot and humid with a refreshing breeze. The views over the old city and out toward the new high rise of Boca Grande were nice to see.
... we saw all in about thirty seconds. As we stepped off the plane we felt relief feeling the warmth of the sun and cool breeze coming in from the sea. A lot better than Bogotá. Both of us smiling we found the company we travelled with and instantly noticed the hospitality of the Costeños. Costeños are people from the coast by the way. Luisa and I boarded the bus and we went to Old Town. The second we both saw Old Town and the wall surrounding Old Town (Muralla), our mouths dropped. ...
... We then came back to Getsemaní and found the hostel we stayed in for the night, Casa Viena. We are paying $10 each for a private room and shared bathroom and the place is absolutely beautiful, just so cute and in a perfect area. There is a fresh fruit and veggie market right next door, so we stocked up our fridge for tomorrow :) We went for dinner at an Italian restaurant - they are definitely in abundance here! I got a wonderful green salad with olive oil and ...
... We chill out with Manuel and Jussi before Rengin and Tashin arrive. But they are also a bit tired and have had a few drinks so after half an hour or so, we say our goodbyes. We thank the captains for the trip and getting us here safe and they tell us to meet them over the next few days for some drinks on the boat while we are both in Cartagena. A nice gesture, but the last place we want to go for a while is that boat, or any boat in general. Tashin really took to Leesh and gave her ...
