    Looking for a pool with some serious pulling power? The infinite beauty of the InterContinental Cartagena Hotel's watery wonder is worth checking in for on its own. 

    The luxury hotel chain's long-awaited debut in Cartagena pooled out all the stops with a towering intervention that has managed to give Bocagrande back some of its fading pomp.

     This five-star addition to Cartagena's towering skyline that opened in 2015 has already become the go-to destination for business executives in town to splash the company credit cards.

     Perfectly placed for those with a work-hard play-hard philosophy, the InterContinental takes everything it does very seriously. 

    The hotel's service is great and the rooms are decked out in a chilled blue and white motif with all the modern comforts expected of a businss-friendly hotel in the tropics. 

    You won't miss a thing if you're in town on business but you'll find it difficult not to get distracted by the pool and the stunning sea views on offer in most of the hotel's 282 rooms. 

    It's the hotel's special connection to the Caribbean horizon at pool level that make this such a landmark in Cartagena's hotel offering. 

    As well a its undisputed popularity with the business set that fill the cavenous conference centre downstairs, this is also a popular spot for large groups looking to get some sunshine away from the winter chill of North America and Europe. 

    With just about everything you might need in the mall downstairs, from artisanal beer to big betting and a cinema, the InterContinental Cartagena has the word convenience running through its core like a stick of Brighton rock.

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 top beach district for most Colombian visitors to Cartagena since American oil executives made the place fashionable in the mid-20th century.

    Almost everyone from Colombia has fond memories of their first Caribbean vacation and it probably included a stay in one of the big hotels found on the beach in Bocagrande. 

    While it might not be the best beach in Colombia, it is the longest stretch of beach in Cartagena's metropolitan area and the combination of beach and historic allure of the center made Bocagrande the tourist Mecca for Colombians from the 1960s onwards.

    Extending five blocks back from the beach, Bocagrande 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.

    Some of the city's best traditional restaurants can be found close to the beach catering to the locals. Some of our favourites include: Restaurante Arabe Internacional, Dolce e Salato Restaurante Italiano.
