going to Ultramar at Playas de Manzanillo - hotels nearby?

by kdemeire Online Now Nov 13, 2008 at 11:10 AM

I am having the hardest time finding where Playas de Manzanillo is in Cartagena for the Ultramar festival in January 2009. I am looking for hotels (or apartments) that are nearby. It seems that all the other hotels are in Boca Grande and is far away from the event.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi

    My name is Claude, i am leaving in Cartagena and I am canadian. The Ultramar festival is not in Manzanillo del Mar (located after de La Boquilla approx. 15 km from the airport, at the north). This festioval will be held at The Blas el Teso playa (same beach as Hotel America, La Boquilla).

    A lot of hotels are on thos beach because is the new area for the tourism and Bocagrande is now borring with many vendors.
