TripAdvisor Reviews Hotel Pueblito Playa Cartagena
Travel Blogs from Cartagena
... Sir Frances Drake. In the 16th century alone this town was under siege on 5 occasions. Once Drake sacked the port and mercifully spared the city after he was offered a 10 million peso ransom. As a result of the predation, the locals built defensive walls around the city. Later a fortress was built upon a nearby hill and was called Castillo San Felipe. Over a period of three hundred years the fortress was improved ...
... We took no time to unpack and get our bathing suits on. We could not wait to explore the island. We were both ecstatic about feeling the ocean's waves and sand between our toes. This was Luisa’s first time going to the beach and I could not be more happy to be the one to be right by her side. I also could not wait to see her in the new bathing suit we got her.

... the worst bed spot. Onmy boat the twin cabin is $650. The general itinery is two nights at sea, then two and a half days bouncing around San Blas before getting into Panama mainland around 2pm on Sunday 15th. The biggest unknown at the moment is I'm the only person signed up!
In the evening I had a few drinks with a couple of Finish guys on holiday and a Danish girl. Conversation was a bit hard work, so I wasn't heartbroken when they called it an early night.
