5 Highlights from This is Cartagena

Posted: 16 Mar, 2017

This is This is Cartagena.

Aside from being a pretty handsome bunch, we all consider ourselves extremely lucky. Not only do we get to live and breathe this incredible city 24/7, but we get to make travellers love it as much as we do. We adore our jobs so much that we decided to show you what working in Cartagena’s coolest company (if we may say so ourselves!) is all about.

Here are just a few highlights…

 

1. We get to meet and work with super cool people every day

From collaborating with international artists such as Fin Dac (pictured above) and interviewing the FARC to hosting the patrons of the Ogden Museum, New Orleans. There is truly never a dull encounter in this office.

 

2. We get to visit the Rosario Islands and call it our ‘job’

We are true water babies at heart, and love nothing more than scouring the Rosario Islands for a selective bit of island hopping. We love it so much, we curated our own deluxe island hopping day trip, so now you guys can discover the secret swathes and premium snorkelling spots we amor so much.

 

3. Giving back to the city

Working with the incredible communities in the barrios, hiring the best locals and showing tourists life outside the city walls is what makes us a little different from your typical ‘tour’ agency.

 

4. Witnessing once-in-a-lifetime moments

It’s not every day you get to plan a proposal on top of Cartagena’s most beautiful cathedral, let alone be there when they pop the question. Last year, we help 17 people say YES in spectacular settings, and we never tire of seeing couples tear up when their other half goes the extra mile.

 

5. Throwing the biggest party on the islands

When November Fiestas come around we like to let loose and really show everyone how to party. That means, boats, islands, foam and lots of reggaeton. Trust us, it’s just as fun as the photo!
