This is what Christmas and New Year’s Eve feel like in Cartagena!


The December atmosphere feels really incredible in our charming Cartagena de Indias thanks to its dazzling decoration, its traditions and its authentic gastronomy, which always manages to make those who visit it fall in love.

Here are some places you should visit at this time of year and the food you should try with your family!


  • When you arrive in Cartagena during these dates you will notice that, in all the shopping centers, squares and parks there will be wonderful Christmas decorations, as the imposing Christmas trees steal all the attention, as well as their nativity scenes that represent the night of the birth of Jesus.


In front of the nativity scene it is celebrated every year The Novena of Strenna. Start the December 16 and ends December 24 and it is composed of 6 moments or prayers, which must be recited during the 9 days that represent the months prior to the birth of Jesus and his arrival in Bethlehem.


  • The Historic Center shines brighter than ever thanks to the fascinating Christmas lighting of its houses, and emblematic monuments such as the Wall and the Clock Tower that are dressed in colorful lights that further highlight their magic and beauty.


  • In the Bocagrande sector, right where our Hotel Almirante is located, you will be amazed by an illuminated panoramic night view of the city that will make you take more than one picture. From our pool you will have a privileged view!


  • Talking about Cartagena’s gastronomy During these dates it is to talk about love, flavor, color and an incredible seasoning. Traditionally, families in the region celebrate Christmas and New Year’s Eve with wine, rum, stuffed turkey, pork legs, custard, cakes, tamales, fritters and more.


  • Every year on December 31st, the New Year’s Eve Festival of San Silvestre is celebrated to the sound of good Colombian music, traditional food and the omens of good luck that cannot be missing in many homes; The most popular are lentils in pockets for prosperity and 12 grapes to make a wish for each at midnight.
