Travel Blogs from Cartagena
Volcan de Lodo El Totumo - famous with tourists visiting Cartagena, it's not the type of volcano you typically think of, as it's a mud volcano. People climb up and drop inside of a giant mud bath, which reputedly has therapeutic properties. This was high on our list of things to do but staying here during New Year's made it difficult to arrange …
Tolu - such a cute and charming little Colombian seaside town, even though there isn't much to see or do in the town itself, it's the kind of place perfect for lingering and doing very little of anything other than drinking a cold beer or refreshing tropical fruit juice, eating some fresh seafood, and chilling in a hammock with a book.
Cartagena evokes memories of so many incredible locales - being a walled city with a privileged location on the ocean, walking atop the ramparts is reminiscent of Dubrovnik or Kotor. How about the multi-million dollar yachts in the harbour, with uber-chic bars full of beautiful people grooving to the beats of techno or house? Think Budva. Everyone …
... the city safe, even beating off the British Army's 25000 soldiers with just 2500 defenders in 1741. Let's not dwell on the past though. The old city was beautiful and we enjoyed walking round the walls and through the narrow streets, dodging the horse drawn carriages. It was truly surprising to find such a beautiful gem in Colombia and we felt totally safe, well fairly safe anyway. As we drove into the street where our hostel was situated we ...
Well well, we have found a little gem of a place called Cartagena. In my opinion it is better than our Italian counterpart Venice. It's warm, its hot, everyone here is on holiday, they have these romantic little streets with colonial coloured houses and it's party time every-night. You can pay $40 USD to stay here or you can pay $43,000. No surprise which one we did. Why come to Cartagena? There is the mud volcano which you can bathe in :) Then Playa Blanca (the white ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Lee Cartagena
Cartagena hotels are very pricey during Christmas and the New Year, but the Hotel Lee represented fair value. Less than a five minute walk to the old town, it's close to all the action, but also quiet enough for a good sleep. It's in a part of Getsemani undergoing gentrification, with boutique shops and nice restaurants sprouting up just outside the hotel's doors. Will probably be a very upscale street in a few years.
The hotel was always kept spotless, and the rooftop lounge/pool was great to cool off in the afternoon. The staff was phenomenal, especially the manager, Luis. He went above and beyond answering our questions, and helping us book tours and private transport to Santa Marta. Upon arrival there, we realized we had left behind a pair of sandals - no problem, as Luis not only quickly located them, but couriered them to our final stop in Bogota. Would definitely recommend this place and also return in the future.
