The historic city of Cartagena has a wealth of beautiful buildings and sights. Its beautiful Caribbean location means there’s also a wide range of activities to do on the water and many beaches to relax on.
It was once a bustling port and the principal storage depot for treasure plundered by Spanish ships from Central and South America. This led to frequent attacks by buccaneers including Sir Francis Drake and Edward Vernon. To defend the city from these marauding pirates, the Spanish built a magnificent series of walls around the old town called Las Murallas. Today these imposing walled structures surround a city full of cobbled streets, charming cafes, plazas cascading with bouganvilla and a gastronomic scene that has wowed the likes of Anthony Bourdain.
A luxury villa is an excellent option for a trip to Cartagena because it offers much more space and privacy than a hotel room. It’s ideal for groups traveling together and offers the comfort of home while allowing you to explore all that Cartagena has to offer.
Unlike hotels that are often spread out and can feel impersonal, Cartagena VIP’s luxury rental properties are all private homes or apartments in the heart of the old town with spacious living areas, large bedrooms and bathrooms, and gorgeous patios. Many of our properties have a private pool for you to enjoy during your stay in Cartagena. There are even properties with rooftop pools and stunning views of the city!
In addition to the amazing properties we have in the old city, Cartagena VIP has an expansive portfolio of vacation homes in other areas around the city. If you’re interested in visiting one of these incredible villas, reach out to our Cartagena VIP travel experts and we can help you find the perfect place for your next adventure in Colombia!
Where to Stay in Cartagena
The best time of year to visit Cartagena is during the months of November, January and February. These are the cheapest months of the year to rent a vacation home in Cartagena and they tend to have more availability than other months of the year.
If you’re traveling with a group, be sure to book your stay well in advance. During the peak season of July, August and September it’s more difficult to find vacation rentals in Cartagena because they are generally fully booked.
