Cartagena de Indias is one of Latin America’s most desirable tourist destinations. In addition to its historical and cultural offerings, and beautiful beaches, families will find plenty of other activities to do here. My recommendation is to start planning your trip by booking a family friendly hotel. Here are two suggestions.
The Hotel Hilton Cartagena is an excellent hotel to stay at, whether traveling for business or with the whole family. From the moment you arrive, you feel the professionalism and welcome of the Hilton staff.
If you are an active family, and the grownups want to work out, the hotel offers a well-equipped gym with different exercise classes, available every day for guests. For the active youngsters who love sports, this hotel offers tennis, beach soccer, basketball, and many more spaces where they can have fun with their friends or take lessons. Water sports such as wind surfing, jet-skiing, and riding a banana boat are also very fun activities that the whole family can enjoy.
The alternative to an active lifestyle can also be realized with style at Hotel Hilton. Soak up the sunrays and cool yourself off at one of the three pool areas, including a swim-up bar, cabanas, and lounge chairs. The kiddie pool offers a safe environment for children, as well as some guided activities held by hotel staff. The private beach is a few steps away from the pool area, if you want a more relaxing space to enjoy the ocean breeze.
Las Americas Global Resort, located in northern Cartagena, is a tropical beachfront resort divided in two main towers: Las Americas Torre del Mar offers the comfort and technology of a luxury hotel in a big building designed under the highest standards of quality and sophistication, especially for business.
Las Americas Casa de Playa tower is a fascinating beach environment surrounding, a great hotel for a family vacation. Featuring full facilities like 3 swimming pools, mini golf, spa, water sport activities, and sport courts. There is constant presence of the hotel’s entertainment staff ready to take the kids out of your hands and worry, and show them a wonderful time. Add to that the excellent culinary offerings of the hotel’s restaurants and the comfortable rooms, and you got yourself a great vacation.
The beautiful private beach, facilities, and beachside services such as food and drinks, cabanas, beach chairs and lounges, and water sports, makes Las Americas an extraordinary place to have fun and relax. This is a great place to come and spend lots of quality time with the family while at the same time enjoying the great destination that is Cartagena.
These two hotel suggestions are only ten minutes away from downtown Cartagena and have the right ingredients for a fabulous family getaway; wonderful weather, beautiful beaches, welcoming people, city tours, and of course great resorts amenities to keep the whole family entertained.
