NEW YEAR’S EVE: CARTAGENA


I fell in love with this town the first time I visited in 1998. This UNESCO world-heritage site has a perfect mix of Spanish-Colonial and Caribbean influences that create a place full of beauty and excitement. Although it is getting increasingly popular it still considered to be an undiscovered gem, and despite write-ups in The New York Times and Travel + Leisure magazine, it remains for now safe from the Jet-Ski-and-champagne crowd one may find in St.-Tropez or St. Barth’s. So if you are looking for a quiet, sunny place to ring in the new year or chase away your winter chills Cartagena is a great place to spend some time. Since my wedding in 2007, I have become the unofficial Colombian tour guide and am happy to share my love of Cartagena with you.

HOTELS
The two big hotels are Charleston Santa Teresa and Sofitel Santa Clara. Both are excellent, but I steer my guests toward some of the many excellent boutique hotels or villa rentals that Cartagena has to offer.

Tcherassi Hotel, Calle del Sargento Mayor No. 6-21; reserve@tcherassihotels.com.
The newest boutique hotel to open its doors recently is the Tcherassi Hotel. Silvia Tcherassi (the owner and designer of the hotel) is the most international of all the Colombian designers and is a longtime fan of Cartagena. This is the chicest spot for the fashionable flock, and its amazing restaurant and spa are some of the best Cartagena has to offer. This is, for now, THE spot to be.

Hotel LM, Centro Calle de la Mantilla No. 3-56, Cartagena de Indias; 011-575-664-9564
Until the Tcherassi Hotel came along, Hotel LM was the newest and chicest boutique hotel. With great service, location, amenities, and style this hotel still ranks as one of the best of the best.

Hotel Agua, Calle de Ayos No. 4-29, 011-575-664-9479.
Located in a typical Cartagena seventeenth-century colonial house, Hotel Agua was one of the first boutique hotels in Cartagena and set the standard very high for those that have followed. It has six fully furnished rooms that make it feel more like a guest house than a hotel. I put my V.I.P. guests for my wedding here and they are still thanking me for it.

HOUSE RENTALS
Cartagena offers many accomodations for large groups. For a reasonable price, a fully restored mansion in the old-town can be rented during the season. The bigger houses usually come with a staff, driver, and cook to make sure that there is nothing getting in between you and your afternoon siesta.

I recommend using travel-luxury-services.com. Founder and manager, Patrick Enste, and his staff will find you the best house and ensure your stay is comfortable. He is trustworthy and knowledgeable about the area. I suggest staying inside the old town, and be sure to request a house with a pool and access to a boat because the city does not have a great beach, and to enjoy the crystal-clear Caribbean waters one must take a 20- to 30-minute boat ride. It’s worth the commute.


RESTAURANTS
La Vitrola, Calle Baloco No. 2-01; 011-575-660-0711.
Definitely the best restaurant in town. Great food and great atmosphere.
I love the shrimp and ropa vieja. FYI: shredded flank steak in tomato sauce base..

La Cevicheria, Calle Stuart 7; 011-575-664-2760.
It is as casual and as local as you can get. You may not get an English-speaking waiter, but you will get some of the best ceviche of your life.

Juan del Mar, Centro Plaza San Diego; 011-575-664-5862.
Juan del Mar is considered to be the Danny Meyer of Colombia. Visit one of his three namesake restaurants for good food and fun.

NIGHTLIFE
In Cartagena, music follows you everywhere. Literally. Musicians lurk on every corner and shadow you from point A to B (whether you like it or not). Personally, I like it a lot, and it is not uncommon to invite them into your home to keep your party going into the wee after-hours.

Cafe del Mar, Baluarte de Santo Domingo; 011-575-664-6513 cafedelmarcolombia.com.
Things start late in Cartagena. So after a long dinner it is nice to have some drinks at Cafe del Mar. Situated on the city wall (baluarte) there is a great breeze and great drinks to cool you down and then get you warmed up for the evening.

Quiebra-Canto, Carrera 8B, No. 25-110, Edificio Puerta del Sol; 011-575-664-1372.
A real local bar playing local salsa music.


Tu Candela, Portal de los Dulces; 011-575-664-8787.
Here, you are either dancing salsa or you are leaning out the balcony gasping for fresh air. Some of my best and worst memories are from Tu Candela. Requires mucho aguardiente (a local, and potent beverage).

SHOPPING
Galería Cano, Centro Calle 334-11; 011-575-664-7078.
The handicrafts of Colombia can be picked up at any local vendor on the Calle Santo Domingo and Calle San Juan de Dios, but the quality of the items at Galería Cano are the best and buyers can be sure the origin of the products are local and come from sustainable communities. The reproduction pre-Colombian gold jewelry is also very special. I love the brightly colored mochilas and hammocks; they are my go-to souvenir gift for friends and family.

Silvia Tcherassi, Carrera 3, No. 31-11. Centro Histórico; 011-575-664-9403.; silviatcherassi.com.
Tcherassi is the Carolina Herrera of Colombia and the most famous of all the Colombian designers.

THINGS TO DO
Mornings and late-afternoons are the best times to explore the city (midday being too hot and best spent indoors or at the pool).

Beaches: Cartagena does not have great beaches near the town. One must commute! Rent a boat for the day, or stay at an island outpost of one of Cartagena’s hotels, or get yourself invited to one of the many spectacular beach houses or private islands. Otherwise, Playa Blanca is relativelyclose by and open to the public. Grab a hammock and bring some cervezas.

The Cathedrals of Cartagena are quite stunning. Don’t be afraid to go inside and take a look around. If you are lucky you may find yourself in the middle of a wedding ceremony. Cartagena is becoming more and more popular for destination weddings for the beauty of its churches, the range of accommodations, and the activities. Brides can thank the Spanish colonists for the beautiful churches of San Pedro Claver, Santo Domingo, Iglesia de la Trinidad and Santo Toribio, and the Santa Teresa Cloister.

Many of the important sights of Cartagena are situated around the Plaza Bolívar. The Cathedral, the Palace of the Inquisition, and a gold museum can be found around the shaded park celebrating the Liberator of Colombia.

Teatro Heredia is an architectural jewel featuring frescoes and backdrops by renowned Cartagena artist Enrique Grau.

Diving Planet, Calle Estanco del Aguardiente 5-94; 011-575-664-2171. I hear that some of the best spots in Cartagena are at the bottom of the ocean. I have never (and most likely will never) go scuba diving but I hear it’s fantastic.
