HITTING THE HEIGHTS
The modern architecture of hundreds of avant-garde skyscrapers house within them all the amenities needed to ensure a luxurious stay, as well as stunning views of the port or the bay.
In front of the Naval Hospital at the entrance to Bocagrande, sits a monument to María Mulata, created by Cartagena’s ‘maestro’ Enrique Grau, which pays tribute to the bird that’s typical of the region.
All the best in fashion, jewelry, gastronomy, cinema, cafés, bars, casinos and beauty salons await you at the Plaza Bocagrande or Nao malls, as well as strolling along Avenida San Martín.
Spend a day relaxing by the pool or sunbathing on the beach while you enjoy the food and drinks on offer at the Hyatt, Capilla del Mar, Hilton and Caribe hotels.
A VARIED PALATE
Don’t miss one of Cartagena’s culinary treasures, Árabe Internacional, which has been serving diners since 1965. Be sure to try the French pastries at La Petite Gourmande and La Brioche, or sample a healthy option at Salute.
Head to Bocagrande and Castillogrande’s pedestrian walkway to jog, go for a bike ride or skate around. The area is also home to a number of gyms and training centers, so that you can keep up your exercise game even when away from home.
