I had a great time visiting the wonderful city of Cartagena. I was very pleased with Hotel Agua's excelent level of service and high quality everything!! We arrived and were treated like royalty we lacked nothing. The wonderfully restored house felt like a home away from home. We loved all the attention to detail and character and charm that was built in to the place. There is something to be said about a building that is over 200 years old and yet feels like it it was just a recetly built to look that way. From the modern A.C. and wifi, to the huge thick wooden door that must have been knocked by pirates in the 17th century. It was a great stay. We also had the wonderful pleasure to go to ther location In Baru island. The boat ride to Baru was scheduled by the main hotel and evertyhing worked just fine with out a glitch. We arrived in the Island and we greeted with delicious tropical drinks and offered food, other drinks and or what we wanted The level of comfort and security were great. I do have to mention that as we proceed with our story we are being charged for every thing we were comsuming. we thought it was included. The hotel did ask us several days in advance what kind of food we wanted to eat while we were there as the food has to be imported from the mainland. But to continue with the story. The bungalow we stayed at was the middle one with a great view. You dohave to walk up about 100 steps to get to it. But dont worry they bring everything to you. All the meals are carried up to your room and you dont have to leave the room if you don't want to. The view is incredible. The bed faces the glass flolding doors and to see the sunset is amaizing ( I have stayed in Hawaii, Key west, Numerous places throu out Florida, California) This by far is the most Romantic. The brezze is gentle and refreshing. The mosquitos are non excistent. The flora and fauna are comparable to much more remote areas of the world. We had a Great time!! The price was worth it for our honey moon. If you seek unique experience with out the cost of going to Bali or Thailand go to Colombia and have a great time. By t he way the food is fantastic!!!!! We don' even eat at places like olive garden because we are just snobish like that. But We ate some places that my wife would never step in to in the U.S. and had some of the best food we have ever tasted in our life. I did have to add 2 extra days to my excersice routine for about a moth lo loose the 4 -5 or so pounds we gained. HAHAH! Enjoy
