Cartagena is known for its thriving gastronomic scene, pristine Caribbean beaches and vibrant culture.
Spend your days strolling its bustling streets being inspired by the colourful architecture, gorging on fresh seafood and learning about the coastal towns’ rich and layered history.
Whenever the heat of the city gets too much, return to Casa Pestagua, your tranquil oasis. Within its palatial walls, cool off in the pool or find a shady spot in the garden to read. Equally, escape to its private beach club, ACASI, where you can spend the day under a palm tree with a cocktail in hand.
Then, come nighttime, dance the night away in local salsa bars.
Casa Pestagua is located in Cartagena, which sits along the Caribbean Coast of Colombia.
There are direct flights to Bogota with Avianca from London. From here, it is then a 90-minute flight north to Cartagena. However, for those coming from Miami or Madrid, it’s possible to fly directly to Cartagena.
The boutique hotel is twenty minutes from the airport by car.
Cartagena is a year round destination with a hot and humid tropical climate. While rain can fall at any time, the ‘drier’ season (December to March) is typically the best time to visit.
