From your colourful colonial mansion hotel, explore its churches, museums, old fortresses and traditional lively music venues, escaping the tropical Caribbean heat of the day in a pavement café, sipping cool coconut lemonade with mint. Literature fans could coincide their visit with the Hay Festival Cartagena in late January, now one of the most important literary events in Latin America.
Head out to the Rosarios Islands from the city to relax in a simple coastal retreat where the snorkelling and diving are excellent and you can taste some of the freshest seafood. For a real tropical paradise, although the accommodation is pretty rustic, fly out to Providencia via San Andres for a taste of how the Caribbean used to be pre-mass tourism – peaceful, friendly and unspoilt.
‘Greetings. this has turned out to be a paradise in so many ways....so a big thank you from us.
Wonderful support from your company over here....we were met at the airport (with flowers!!!!!) and introduced to our personal guide who is fabulous. Can't get over the attention to detail ....cool flannels, chilled water, fresh juice on arrival, bag full of thoughtful goodies for our trip, wonderful rooms with bathrooms bigger than our bedroom at home(!) and we were upgraded to a suite and as I write we are listening to tropical birdsong as we look out over the lagoon from our balcony. Wow!!!!!
I could go on but I'll spare you.
Thanks a million
