We are a family of two adults and 2 children ages 14 and 10 and would like to visit Cartagena for 4 days while staying in Florida next April. Could someone recommend a suitable, safe hotel and whether Aries airline from Fort Lauderdale is reliable - looks cheapest!It would be our first time in Colombia so any tips on safety in Cartagena would also be appreciated
Aires airlines of Colombia is a safe and reliable airline. It is the upcoming Low Cost Carrier (LCC, comparable with Easyjet) of Colombia and in alliance with Spirit airlines, also from Fort Lauderdale and also an LCC.
For transportation and other general info you may want to have a look at my Colombia pages.
Depending on budget I know of some hotels in Cartagena from own experience:
Hotel Capilla del Mar;
Hotel El Dorado;
and have a look at the Cartagena page of member "tratoria":
These hotels are all located in Bocagrande, the tourist area of Cartagena, from where it is a short taxi ride to the historic centre.
