This Is Cartagena

This is Cartagena was born in 2011, out of our passion for this incredible Caribbean destination and its people. We wanted to shout from the colonial rooftops about just how great this city was, but we wrote about it instead.

We aim to put our unrivaled experience and local intel into your hands - our comprehensive portfolio of amazing stays, tailor-made tours and hooked up concierges help you do just that.
