Cartagena's cheapest accommodation can be found in GetsemanĂ. Around here, you will find backpacker hostels that have basic rooms, with a stiff bed and cold water showers. Nonetheless, in recent years, some B&Bs and boutique hotels have opened their doors. Once you cross over Avenida Venezuela into the Centro and San Diego neighborhoods, both price and quality rise. Hotels in the Centro are right in the thick of daily activity, those in San Diego are quiet and serene. Bocagrande has vacation-resort-styled hostels and apartments for rent. No matter the class of accommodations, rates rise in the high seasons.
