Cartagena’s old city and surrounding beaches offer the perfect blend of Latin American & Caribbean culture for your next vacation. From the luxurious remodeled beachfront condos in Bocagrande, to the high end Spanish colonial mansions in the historic district or island living on one of Cartagena’s tropical islands, Prime Rentals can help you find your ideal Colombian paradise.
The oldest part of the city, also known as Centro Historico, is an architectural gem steeped in history and charm. Picturesque plazas and parks, shady streets, and Spanish colonial buildings make for an ideal walking tour, with boutique cafes, restaurants, and cultural sites abounding. At night, the streets come alive as horse-drawn carriages fill the streets and locals and tourists gather to watch the sun set and see the city light up from the iconic walls that encircle the city’s historic center.
Getting out on the water is one of the best things to do in Cartagena. Whether you join a sunset cruise, snorkeling tour, or scuba diving excursion, you’ll be able to take in epic views of the city’s skyline from the shimmering ocean. Plus, it’s a great way to escape the heat of the day and enjoy the refreshing ocean breeze.
While Cartagena is home to some of the most amazing beaches in all of Latin America, it’s also surrounded by many other beautiful islands that provide a great opportunity to swim, relax and get away from it all. Isla Baru, Isla Grande, and Cholon are some of the most popular island destinations near Cartagena that offer both snorkeling and scuba diving in pristine waters along with beautiful beaches and a lively atmosphere.
The Cartagena real estate market is expanding rapidly with new apartment complexes, hotels, and malls being built in both the old city and the upscale neighborhoods of Bocagrande and Manga. There are also plenty of old houses that need renovation for sale in the old city that can be remodeled into charming, short-term rentals or turnkey vacation homes.
With its gorgeous weather and vibrant culture, it’s no surprise that Colombia is becoming a popular place for people from all over the world to live. It’s a great place for retirees, families, and those who are looking to have the best of both worlds. From luxurious remodeled beachfront condominiums in the trendy and upscale Bocagrande neighborhood to stunning Spanish colonial mansions in the old city, there is something for everyone.
