This apartment 2nd floor unit is one of eleven apartments located on the 2nd & 3rd floors of a three-story building (a clothing store is on the ground floor). There is a door from the street with stairs to the second & third floors which guests of the eleven apartments share. Guests will have the key to this main door as well as to their own individual apartment.

There is also a roof deck with a 'mirador' and great views of Cartagena! All Balcones guests have access to this.

Once booked, guests receive a multi-page document (in English) and website with information on the apartments and Cartagena. I have lived in this city for more than two years, traveled around Colombia quite a bit and would be happy to answer any questions or give advice via email or phone prior to your trip.

Upon arrival in Cartagena, our multilingual (Spanish/English/French) apartment manager Benjamin will meet you at the apartment at the agreed upon time to let you in, show you the place, and give you keys. Should you have a question about the apartment or you want tourism assistance, laundry service, or have questions while there, feel free to ask!

Balcones apartments are located in the San Diego section of the magical Old City of Cartagena, within the 500 year old Spanish colonial walls. Colonial architecture abounds!

The building is on the corner of Calles Segunda de Badillo and la Moneda, which are busy and lively streets. There are shops and small restaurants on these streets while just at the other end of Calle Segunda de Badillo is the beautiful Parque Fernandez de Madrid, with cafes with outdoor seating, restaurants, a chocolate museum, and more.

At the far end of the Calle de la Moneda block is the Exito department store which sells everything from groceries to electronics plus has an ATM. One street away in the other direction you'll find the popular Juan Valdez coffee shop and the main University of Cartagena building.

Calle de la Moneda is widely used by Cartageneros as they walk to and from work, school, transportation, etc. (and to shop!). You are in the heart of “real” Cartagena on Calle de la Moneda!

Churches, museums, other shops, bars, the old city wall, and the Caribbean Sea are only a few blocks away. You are within close proximity to everything here!

Walking is the best way to get around the Walled City – it’s great wandering the maze of quaint streets. But you are never far from the surrounding walls so you don’t have to worry about accidentally straying too far!

If you are in a hurry or want to venture outside the walls, taxis are inexpensive and easily flagged on the street. We are a 5-10 minute/US$4 taxi ride from the airport, and a 5-10 minute/US$2-3 taxi ride away from other sites/areas, such as San Felipe Castle (the huge old Spanish fort) or the tourist dock (for the boats to the Rosario Islands, where many prefer to go for the beach), or the beaches of Bocagrande, Laguito and Castillogrande.

We look forward to having you!

We partner with 'Pack for a Purpose', an organization that links travelers who'd like to help fulfill wish lists of non-profits in developing countries. We work with community organizations & an organization helping street animals, and would love to have your help!

Property Manager

I've lived most of my life in the U.S. (where I am from) but have also lived for a couple of months to up to two years in different countries: Germany, Spain, Australia, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, & Belize. Since 2011 I've been living a somewhat nomadic lifestyle while exploring, working & volunteering in new & old places in North, Central & South America and Europe. It's a great way to keep learning!

I was fortunate to meet a couple from Dallas, who own the Cartagena, Colombia, & Ambergris Caye, Belize, vacation rentals I'm listing. They asked me to help them out and I've fallen into doing something that I love -- helping people like you with their travels. Let me help you with your dream vacation! In the fall of 2015, I was lucky enough to be able to buy my own apartment in Cartagena, Colombia, and rent out the second bedroom when I'm there and the whole apartment when I'm not. I love playing direct host also!

We also partner with 'Pack for a Purpose', an organization that links travelers who'd like to help fulfill wish lists of non-profits in developing countries. We work with schools, community organizations & animal rescue groups in both Colombia & Belize. We'd love to have your help!
