La Passion Hotel, Cartagena

What will you do today? Before breakfast you may take an early swim, or simply watch the old walled city of Cartagena waking up, from the rooftop terrace of La Passion Hotel. Then it’s time to take a stroll around the quaint streets of the city’s historic quarter, with its centuries-old buildings, plazas and parks, museums and galleries. Or will you take a guided tour and gain a real insight into the layers of history and the cultural influences that make up Cartagena de Indias?

Or you may decide to take to the sea. This remarkable hotel can also arrange for you to hire a yacht and sail off to the castaway islands of Rosario and Baru. A definite high point on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Colombia.
