We stayed here for a week in Feb. The apt. was easy to find, as it is on one of the main roads that lead into the old city. It was clean and as pictured in the ads. It is easy to walk anywhere in the old city from here, and just a short 15 min. taxi ride to the...

We just returned from 3 weeks in Cartagena. 2 weeks at Calle de la Moneda and one week at Coralina Island. Besides the beautiful sunny hot weather, Cartagena is a beautiful, vibrant, fascinating city. All the shops are so close. It is an incredible walking city and the apartment is in the perfect location. It's clean, quiet and has the...

About the neighborhood
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 Ferná...
Getting around
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$4-5 taxi ride from the airport, and a 5-10 minute/US$2-3 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.
