Casa San Agustin, Cartagena

Set out to walk along the top of Cartagena’s historic city walls and you will find yourself ambling past colonial-style buildings and soaring churches with ornate frontages or sparkling white domes. You’ll look down on a magnificently preserved Old Town and quaint balconied houses. It will be quite a walk – especially as the walls are 11 kilometres long; the most extensive in the whole of South America.

Stroll back to your hotel and you’ll be able to relax; you had the wisdom to specify the Casa San Agustin when you were planning your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Colombia. The San Agustin is itself a colonial era, with wooden beamed ceilings and original frescoes in the library - but it also features all the modern comforts you could wish for.

  • Sadly, we never got to go on our trip to Canada in June, due to Covid 19. However, I'm giving a 5 star review because we received such excellent service from Gemma. She itook on board all I asked for and arranged a fantastic tinerary. She was always prompt and professional both in planning the holiday and during the very circumstances of Covid. We would not hesitate to come back to The Ultimate Travel Company.
