Holiday in Cartagena De Indias, Colombia

Local friends in Colombia told me wonders about Cartagena, city about which I knew close to nothing.

Arrival at the Radisson Cartagena Ocean Pavillion Hotel

After enjoying exploring the large suite – a lobby, a bedroom, a living room, 2 bathrooms, and a balcony – I went down to get the welcome drink, and accompany it with some food at the pool restaurant, trying the local chicken with coconut rice.

Following day, treated myself at the many hotel amenities : gym, rooftop jacuzzis (no kids allowed), waterfront swimming pool.

On a small square in front of a church, with benches all around, locals are gathering there (it was a Tuesday evening) after work to talk, have drinks (which are officially forbidden in outdoor public areas) and enjoy some cheap street food – a local patacon sells for a few dollars .

Pool and beach day

The day after, my friend joined me with her daughter at the hotel.

The city is full of amazing Spanish-inspired buildings, and the fortifications are so amazing, they have been recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage site.
