However, it is fully restored and boasts all mod-cons that you would expect in a modern home, such as A/C in each bedroom, a flat-screen TV in the lounge, and a fully-fitted kitchen. Boasting 10 beds in total, Casa Aqua is perfect to host your entire group on your vacation in Cartagena. On the rooftop terrace, as well as an incredible view of the city, you can also relax in the jacuzzi – heaven! Its privileged central location within the walled city means you are at walking distance from all the best bars and restaurants in the city. What more could you ask for?
Without doubt, Cartagena’s Old Town is its principal attraction, consisting of the historical districts of El Centro and San Diego. The area is a true gem of colonial architecture, packed with churches, monasteries, plazas, palaces and mansions with their overhanging balconies and shady patios. The best approach to experiencing Old Town is to wander leisurely, savouring the architectural details, street life and local snacks along the way. The best restaurants and bars in the city are all within a few minutes walk and transport to and from the house is easy to arrange. Whether you’re arriving from the airport, visiting the sights or setting off to the marina to spend a day at sea this is the perfect area to base yourself for your stay in Cartagena.
