Hola from my favorite South American city, Cartagena. (kar ta hay na). My mother, Virginia (May she rip) always taught me in this travel biz to save the best for last and that I have done on this tour. We have arrived! My long time guide, Carlos, met us at the airport with an assistant, Cesar and it’s been smooth sailing ever since.
The 5 star Sofitel Santa Clara, The Legend is truly all that. This being my 3rd stay at this lovely property; I knew what the group was in for. I was delighted to have a suite on the top floor overlooking the ocean and the pool. My butler, Gustavo escorted sister in law Jackie and myself to our suite which had a terrace on the front and the back which overlooked a beautiful garden.
After check in, it was time for me to chill poolside with the pool attendants at our beck and call.
Dinner last night was at Montesacro, also located within the walled city. The ambiance, the food and the service was on point.
This morning’s half day tour with Carlos & Cesar will be without yours truly. I have a 90 mins relaxing aroma massage appointment that I will not miss. Karen had her treatment yesterday as soon as she arrived. She said it was absolutely ONE- DER- FULL. Insider tip: I always make my appointments before leaving the states.
To start my day, I had my morning tea overlooking the ocean, meditating and being thankful for God’s goodness and mercy.
I’m expecting nothing less than a glorious 4 night stay at this legendary hotel which dates back to 1621. She is truly a legend.
Oh my the pictures look amazing and thanks for bringing along for the journey through the blog!
Hi Desha, glad you are enjoying the trip. We miss you
