    If you thought Cartagena's cultural history was locked inside the 16th century walls of Cartagena, think again.

    There's more than meets the eye to Hotel Caribe, a seriously handsome hotel spot that distinguishes itself from the generic resort types that occupy Bocagrande’s suit-and-tie hotel strip.

    It’s confident, and has reason to be. It was the first hotel built in Cartagena to accommodate the arrival of American oil executives in 1950s Bocagrande has maintained its historic charm whilst bringing itself bang up-to-date with a tasteful 2014 upgrade. 

    Everyone from the ‘who's who’of Colombia's social elite have wined, dined and stayed there. Plus, they occupy a privileged spot adjacent to Cartagena’s most popular beach where they reserve special beach umbrellas on the best bit of sand for their guests.

    Ostentatious in the stellar service and options it offers to clients, a 50/50 mix of well-travelled nationals and foreigners, you have everything you need at your fingertips.

    An Olympic-sized swimming pool, three great restaurants, nine conference rooms and a wealth of children-friendly activities to keep your little cherubs busy while you're topping up your tan or treating yourself to some green fire in their emerald store.

    There are toucans and iguanas in their garden. Need we say more?

    With large guestrooms found throughout the hotel's three towers - Colonial, Laguito and Lagomar - this hotel serves up panoramic views of Cartagena's busy beach district, including "Hollywood Beach", one of the liveliest stretches of sand in Cartagena.

    If you've already booked a different place to stay, you can still enjoy the merits of Hotel Caribe with a day pass. Which gives you access to their pool, gym and includes lunch.

LOCATION

  • Bocagrande

    After fifty years at the heart of the city's tourist trade Cartagena's Copacabana is still alive and kicking. The busiest of the city's beach districts has a host of boutiques, bars, spas, restaurants, casinos and cafés vying for your hard-earned pesos. 

    Old 'big mouth' has been the Copacabana of Cartagena since American oil executives made the place fashionable in the mid-20th century.

    Boasting the longest stretch of beach in Cartagena's metropolitan area, the district became a tourist Mecca for Colombians from the 1960s onwards.

    Bocagrande extends five blocks back from the beach and is populated by towers looking west towards the ocean or eastwards at the Bay of Cartagena.

    The skyscrapers are semi-occupied by locals sharing their lofty locales with second homers and a regular flow of tourists on the hunt for self-catering apartments with a sea view and a swimming pool.

     The Avenida San Martin (Cra 2) acts as the main road in to Bocagrande from the old town and as such is lined with beachwear and fashion retail stores, restaurants, cafés, beauty parlours and casinos that cater to the out-of-towners and moneyed residents.
