Thanks to Trendland friend Relais & Chateaux, we had the chance to experience a perfect gateway in Cartagena, Colombia. After a short and inexpensive (average $350 round trip!) 4h30 flight from New York, we arrived into the warm and sunny weather of the Caribbean.
Cartagena is one of the few places in the world that effortlessly possesses an old world charm very similar to Havana or Casco Viejo, Panama. The center of Cartagena’s beauty resides inside its historical walled city – A quick walk through ‘La Ciudad Vieja’ really transports you back to another time – back to when the Spanish colonized the place in the 1500s.
