Cartagena is absolutely charming. The streets are full of friendly people selling slices of fresh fruit, fried arepas and kitchen utensils made from coconut shells. By mid-afternoon, it's hot, hot, hot, so it's a pleasure to retreat to the elegant, peaceful, zen-like atmosphere of the Hotel Ananda. The small hotel, in a restored casa built around a central courtyard, is decorated in "Bali meets South America" style. The views from the mirador which overlooks the Old City are fantastic, with vistas to the sea beyond the city walls. The staff members of the hotel are outstanding. They made us feel very welcome, were always looking out for our well-being and were eager to help us improve our Spanish.
I could go back tomorrow!
