Hello ladies,

Before I start I wanted to thank everyone for all your input!!! Honestly it has helped a ton with all my planning:)

I've been trying to work out some details with day trips and different things people can do while my guests are in Cartagena.

I really want to do a day trip to Las Islas del Rosario??

Enjoy the beach and have lunch... Has anyone used a company that they recommend??

If you have used them.. what time do you leave and come back??

Also the same for doing the Chiva bus one night.. Anyone know of a company that you recommend??

Thanks,

Jessica

We just got back from Cartagena, and we had to go on a Chiva! Our WP is La Chiche, too, so we tried out the chiva that Clara mentioned, Rafael Perez. I do recommend them, they are very professional and we had a blast. It's right by Capilla del Mar Hotel in Bocagrande, but she said that they would pick us up from the walled city if we want, but only around the inside perimeter (they're too big to come in to the smaller streets.) I think we're going to have them pick us up by the Sofitel Santa Clara and have everyone meet at the Coro, the bar there.

It is $23,000 per person and that includes a bottle of rum, a bottle of soda, and a bucket of ice per bench (they give you another one on the way back!). It also includes the fritos, which are yummy little fried snacks. They tour you around the city, stop at the muralla and meet up with other Chivas on the actual wall where there are dancers and drinks, and then drop you off at a salsa club (this time it was Tu Candela, but Quiebra Canto is also good.) I wouldn't suggest any of the other clubs because the areas they are in aren't as nice. The driver drops you off, then offers to take you back after about an hour and a half. If you want to go, you can, but that's about the time when they start picking up, so some guests may want to stay. It's easier to walk back from there if you and your guests are staying within the walled city.

Anyway, it's a must for us, too! Hope this helps!

Hi Clara,

Was that $190,000 USD or COP? per person or total? The 23,000 i mentioned about the chiva is COP :)
