WHY LIVE THIS EXPERIENCE IN COLOMBIA?
Always the center of the party, Getsemaní is called the “Zona Rosa” of Cartagena. This neighborhood near the Cartagena Convention Center is an example of the cultural mix that gave rise to the city; the streets are full of foreigners and Colombians from other areas seeking a bar or club to dance salsa and cumbia. Music blares from the houses so everyone can join the dance.
Getsemaní was the birthplace of the revolt against Spanish rule in the early 19th century.
Neighborhood walls have become galleries for graffiti artists.
Boutique hotels offering spa services have opened in the neighborhood.
