Description from the owner
The magic of Cartagena is in wandering the streets of the beautiful colonial walled city. Choose one of our renovated apartments (studio, one bedroom, or two bedroom) and you are right in the heart of that magic each day of your stay.
In this listing the one bedroom apartment is highlighted, which is great for a single person, a couple, a couple of friends, or a small family. It has everything you need, even a balcony overlooking lively Calle de la Moneda! You’ll love sipping your glass of wine or morning cup of Colombian coffee on the balcony while people-watching and getting a true taste of Cartagena life.

Additional Location Information
These apartments are located in the San Diego section of the magical Old City of Cartagena, within the 500 year old Spanish colonial walls. Colonial architecture abounds!
The building is on Calle de la Moneda, which is a busy and lively street during the day but quiet at night. The street is lined with shops and a couple of small, inexpensive restaurants. Just about everything is closed by 8 pm, however, so you’re not disturbed by noise during the night.
At the far end of Calle de la Moneda is the Exito department store which sells everything from groceries to electronics plus has an ATM. One street away in the other direction you'll find the popular Juan Valdez coffee shop and the main University of Cartagena building. And a block around the corner is the beautiful Parque Fernández de Madrid surrounded by plenty of nice restaurants and cafes.
As transportation hubs for local buses and shared taxis are a couple of blocks straight down this street, Calle de la Moneda is widely used by Cartageneros as they go to and from work, school, etc. (and to shop!). You are in the heart of “real” Cartagena on Calle de la Moneda!
Walking is the best way to get around the Walled City – it’s great wandering the maze of quaint streets. But you are never far from the surrounding walls so you don’t have to worry about accidentally straying too far!
If you are in a hurry or want to venture outside the walls, taxis are inexpensive and easily flagged on the street. We are a 5-10 minute/US$6 taxi ride from the airport, and a 5-10 minute/US$3 taxi ride away from other sites/areas, such as San Felipe Castle (the huge old Spanish fort) or the tourist dock (for the boats to the Rosario Islands, where many prefer to go for the beach), or the beaches of Bocagrande, Laguito and Castillogrande.
