Some tourist info:

Cartagena's main attraction is its historic old town surrounded by the city wall. Main entrance is the Clock Tower building. The walled city includes the neighbourhoods Centro, San Diego, Getsemaní and the modern part La Matuna. The oldest part of Cartagena is around Plaza Trinidad in Getsemaní.

The Castillo de San Felipe is a fortress designed by the Dutch engineer Richard Carr and built in 1657 by the Spanish for protection against pirates while shipping gold out to Europe.

Luis' place was in a nice gated community which was patrolled by guards. Make sure you read the reviews of previous tenants to figure out how to actually get to the airbnb. Putting the address into (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)maps only gets you to the gated community and the individual places aren't labeled. Be aware that the housekeeper Maria only speaks Spanish. She will be meeting you and giving you the keys and she is who you will be dealing with during your stay. I had rented this place specifically because I do not speak spanish and saw that Luis did so I was a bit disappointed. The house was clean and had the essentials of towels and soap. Overall we really enjoyed the location.

Luis Fernando's place is a gem! We never met him, but he had one of his property manager's Maria meet us exactly at our time of arrival. The units are gated and there is a guard at the entrance 24/7. I traveled with 2 of my family members and the apartment had more than enough space. The master bedroom is huge and the room with the 2 beds also has a private bathroom. The place has serious A/C and everything was clean, comfortable and quiet. This place is centrally located right by plaza Santo Domingo- we walked everywhere within the walled city. Highly recommend this place. Gracias!

Luis Fernando's apartment was beautiful, more spacious than pictured, and very comfortable for five. It is perfectly located far enough from the center of the walled city that it is quieter not too difficult to access, but also incredibly central with all of the highlights of the walled city easily walkable. However, we found Luis Fernando unreachable on the day of our arrival and struggled to get in contact with someone locally to let us into the apartment. We would suggest that future guests sort out their check-in well in advance to avoid the same confusion!

I stayed here with 3 colleagues for a conference (12 minute walk to the Cartagena de Indias Conference Center) but hope to bring my family back for a vacation. This ground-floor condo faces a secluded courtyard on two sides. The courtyard is overgrown with lush tropical vegetation and partially walled in by the landmark Santa Domingo cathedral. On several mornings during our stay, we could hear choir music resonating from this historic building...what a serene experience! The condo is on the edge of the Old City: a fascinating blend of old and new, with an exotic fusion of Spanish architecture and Caribbean cultural influences. You're minutes from great restaurants, quaint (albeit touristy) shops, and cultural experiences including several museums, and live dance performances in the Santa Domingo Plaza on weekends. Plus, the wi-fi was great, and though we didn't seem to have hot water, it was so hot outside during our stay that nobody minded. The AC did a good job at keeping the place comfortable. You might have to turn the gas service on (small door in the wall to the right of the stove) to cook, and stove burners have to be lit by hand, just FYI. I recommend this beautiful home without reservation, but keep a few things in mind. 1. The mornings may be serene, but this district of the city is bumping well into the night. You'll still hear music, traffic, passerby and the occasional cat fight until nearly midnight, though these sounds are somewhat muffled by the courtyard around the house. Just don't expect hotel silence... and if you do, plan on going to bed late (not hard to do anyways since the nightlife is great!). 2. We had a bit of trouble finding the place and checking in, because apparently everyone writes the street address of this unit differently...seriously. Don't go by the address in Airbnb. Take a taxi to "Cafe Del Mar en El Centro". The cafe is on top of the sea wall on your right when the driver drops you off. To your left, you'll see two pale yellow buildings with an iron-gated driveway between them and a guardhouse to the left. Talk to the blue-uniformed person in the guardhouse, and tell them you're going to the house of Luis Fernando (voy a casa de Luis Fernando). The guards only speak Spanish, as does the housekeeper, so be ready to whip out a pocket translator if you need to ask questions. 3. The sleeping arrangement may be limiting for business travelers. Front bedroom/bath suite: two twin beds, but glass shower wall open to bedroom. Back bedroom/bathroom suite: 1 king bed, 1 twin daybed, but bathroom is open to the bedroom so there are no light/sound barriers for other sleepers. Two people could sleep on the living room sofa, but there are no window shades so light from the courtyard might be a problem.

We loved everything about our stay. The apartment is large and immaculate. Everyone that we encountered in the complex was so friendly...a neighbor even picked a mango from a courtyard tree and gave it to us to enjoy! You will have no regrets if you stay here!

Thank so much for your visit ,we will like have you again as a guest


This apartment is FANTASTIC! It was really clean, super spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed spending time in the courtyard patio and used the indoor hammock. Luis was quick to respond whenever we had a question while on site. We arrived really late in the evening but check in was easy as the security guards had our keys and we entered the properly easily with proper identification. There were security guards patrolling the property so we felt safe 24/7. We took advantage of the inside tip of having Maria prepare an authentic, Columbia dinner at the apartment which was a highlight of the trip. I would highly recommend this property.
