Interaction with guests
Once booked, guests receive a multi-page document (in English) and website with information on the apartments and Cartagena. I have lived in this city for more than two years, traveled around Colombia quite a bit and would be happy to answer any questions or give advice via email or phone prior to your trip. Upon arrival in Cartagena, our multilingual (Spanish/English/French) apartment manager Benjamin will meet you at the apartment at the agreed upon time to let you in, show you the place, and give you keys. He lives in the building and is readily available. Should you have a question about the apartment or you want tourism assistance, laundry service, or have questions while there, feel free to ask!

About the neighbourhood
These apartments are located in the San Diego section of the magical Old City of Cartagena, within the 500 year old Spanish colonial walls. Colonial architecture abounds!

The building is on the corner of Calle Segunda de Badillo and Calle de la Moneda. The streets are lined with shops and a couple of small restaurants. Just at the other end of the Calle Segunda de Badillo is the beautiful Parque Fernández de Madrid surrounded by plenty of nice restaurants and cafes.

Churches, museums, the old city wall, a department store, the popular Juan Valdez coffee shop, the main University of Cartagena building, and the Caribbean Sea are only a few blocks away. You are within close proximity to everything here!
Getting around
Walking is the best way to get around the Walled City – it’s great wandering the maze of quaint streets. But you are never far from the surrounding walls so you don’t have to worry about accidentally straying too far!

If you are in a hurry or want to venture outside the walls, taxis are inexpensive and easily flagged on the street. We are a 5-10 minute/US$4-5 taxi ride from the airport, and a 5-10 minute/US$2-3 taxi ride away from other sites/areas, such as San Felipe Castle (the huge old Spanish fort) or the tourist dock (for the boats to the Rosario Islands, where many prefer to go for the beach), or the beaches of Bocagrande, Laguito and Castillogrande.
