The Amarla Boutique Hotel is one of the best places to stay in Cartagena Colombia. Our team are passionate about the hotel and the city. Our beautifully restored historic colonial home, friendly staff and excellent location are only a small part of what makes a stay with us so special. Located in the center of the old walled city of Cartagena, you will soon discover that you are perfectly situated to discover the heart of old town Cartagena.
One of the best ways to get properly acquainted with our historic old town is to explore the cobbled streets. If you like we can organize a walking tour with a certified guide who will enthral you with tales of pirates, history and Cartagena culture. They will also point out the sights within the 17th century walls, offering you a glimpse into some of the churches and grand colonial houses. As you pass through the barrio of San Diego, you will also meet friendly locals and visit one of our excellent cafes. It is an experience not to be missed. If you prefer to wander the safe and photogenic streets yourself, be sure to allow yourself plenty of time to soak in the relaxed Caribbean pace of life.
During your stay with us we can also organise a speedboat to take you to the enchanted lagoon of Isla Rosario. Here you can kayak through the mysterious mangroves of Isla Rosario. As you return, in the evening, if you trail your fingers through the water, you can see the fluorescent plankton start to glow like dancing fairies on the water. A true natural wonders. Alternatively, you may choose to take a trip to the Tayrona National Park, spotting wildlife along the way.
