Cartagena has a reasonable choice of places to sleep and despite its touristy status, hotel prices remain reasonable compared to other large cities. If you’re in a position to splash out, there are a few amazing restored colonial options. The tourist peak is from late December to late January, but even then you’ll ﬁnd a room. Most travelers stay within the walled city. In this area, Getsemaní is the main place to ﬁnd budget accommodations, especially on Calle de la Media Luna, while El Centro and San Diego host the old city’s top-end hotels.
