      St, Joseph Day

      Colombia Feb 8, 2015 at 6:57 PM

      I will be visiting Colombia over St. Joseph day. Is that the type of holiday where hotels will book up quickly? Will a lot of places be closed? Are there usually events to be watched (I'll be in Cartagena or Santa Marta)? We don't have the holiday in the US, so I have no idea what type of holiday it is.

      Looking for travel from Houston IAH

      Isla de Providencia Feb 8, 2015 at 11:17 AM

      Found this island while tracking a friends towing vessel (Corbin Foss). Looks very laid back yet with great snorkeling potential. It appears that there are a few Hotels, the Miss Alma piquing my interest.

      I need to get there although and no sites seem to be really thourough. I'd think that Iah to Costa Rica to San Andres to Providencia might work but options are welcome. 

      Thinking of two weeks during the off season, perhaps March next year or Late August / Sept. this year.

      Any info from you folks is greatly appreciated!

      Thanks, Doug

      Indonesian Restaurant in Bogotá, Colombia

      Bogotá Feb 10, 2015 at 3:58 PM

      I took my friends to an Indonesian restaurant in Willemstad, Curacao and they loved it so much. Now I am wondering if they could have an Indonesische "rijsttafel" in Bogotá. Is there an Indonesian restaurant in Bogotá?

      HOSTEL or HOTEL???

      by drumachn Online Now May 25, 2008 at 4:04 PM

      Are there credible hostels in Cartagena that, for the budget traveler is worth while? Or should I spend an extra20 a night for a hotel?

      Also, Im in California and not sure if its better to keep the itinerary open and not reserve a room until Im in Cartagena. June 20th is the expected date of arrival in Cartagena. Should I just walkin with my girlfriend and hope there is room available??? Thanks for now.

      Anyone in CArtagena?

      by angelicaenLA Online Now May 19, 2008 at 1:09 AM

      My travel buddy just announced she will not be able to make her trip so i will be in Cartagena alone on May 25 -28.

      I will be visiting my family in Medellin and then flying to Cartagena since the flight back to LA departs from there. I wanted to see if there were any travelers i could connect with here that might be there during those days...you just never know.

      I would love to go snorkeling to las islas del rosario and spend a day there, and have some company to go dancing. I am originally from Medellin, but i live in Los Angeles...

      Good company makes travelling so much more fun and interesting!

      Estare en Medellin la semana que viene para visitar a mi familia, pero ahora mi amiga me acaba de informar que no me podra acompanar a Cartagena - Estare en Cartagena el 25 de Mayo hasta el 28 - Alguien estara alli durante esos dias?? Que rico tener compania para ir a las islas del rosario, o para ir a bailar.???

    • TRAVELING TO CARTAGENA, COLOMBIA

      by ST.JUDE Online Now Mar 17, 2005 at 11:10 AM

      I have been on various websites collecting info on cartagena.
      I am thinking of retiring and living there permanently. I
      love the weather, and the diversiness of the people and its history
      of the country.
      I am planning to visit this summer, and would like to know the best
      month to visit, when is high season for tourists.
      I will be traveling alone, are there recommended hotels to stay away from,
      and parts of the city as well.
      In regards to retiring to colombia, are there any other cities recommended
      for an 45 yr old single retiree.
      Fact or Myth, are the colombian women as bueatiful as I have been hearing,
      and do they care for american men-me african-america?
      thanks for any advice and recommendations.
