Amazing apartment with an amazing location and breathtaking view. Newly remodeled, it is basically a brand new apartment. Very elegant with all new, modern appliances, including new kitchen and bathrooms. Definitely worth it.

It is beachfront and walking distance to Bocagrande and El Laguito commerical and recreational zones.

Highly recommended!!!

My wife and I spend a wonderful week in Cartagena based out of Nido de Pelicanos (Pelican's Nest) which exceeded our expectations. The building is truly unique and one of a kind amongst the high rise apartment buildings that line the coast. It is located at the end of the spit leading away from the old walled city and has direct access to the beach out your back door. At times it felt like it was out own private beach! We enjoyed the sunrise from our bed and sundowners on the terrace over looking the water, with the lights of the old city as a back drop. Check in/out couldn't have been easier and the house keeper (Saida) is a real gem. It was easy access to the old city as well as San Martin Ave which has an array of shops and restaurants within walking distance. Don't miss the perros caliente from the local street side vendor...to die for! We will be back.....
