    Creative Cartagena

    Meet the Masters

    Kick start your arty weekender in style with pick up from the airport to a villa with serious artistic pedigree in the heart of Cartagena’s historic center. Freshen up before heading out for a cocktail reception at the Sofitel Santa Clara where you can admire work by Colombian heavyweights: Olga de Amaral, Mecedes Hoyos and, of course, Latin America’s most expensive living artist, Fernando Botero.

    Culture Vulture Tour

    Soak up the architectural treasures of the old town, discover the socio-economic thrust behind Getsemani’s fascinating street art and the role that artists played in the city’s transformation. Meet the artists steering the city’s more contemporary art scene and marvel at the masterpieces exhibited in Cartagena’s top galleries. You’ll have an art insider on hand to help choose something to take home with you.

    A Day in Paradise

    Spend a day painting, or simply relaxing in, the most picturesque of island scenes. Soak up the sun and sea with the ultimate chill-out session. Let Cartagena's brilliant Caribbean archipelago be your world class oyster with a day trip to an inspirational beach resort that will more than live up to your Caribbean fantasies of platinum sands and crystalline waters.

    Culinary Creativity

    Along the way, we’ll sate hunger pangs with daily culinary voyages to innovative restaurants, mix things up with a sizzling salsa session and finish things off with a cultural shopping trip, where you can pick up some seriously special souvenirs and Colombian cultural tokens.

    Cultural Loot

    Leave with a complimentary goodie bag filled with special treats, including a colourful handmade mochilla by the Wayuu indians, souvenirs, organic chocolate and coffee and some luxurious beauty products by famous Colombian brand Loto del Sur.
