Cartagena is more than just hotels and tourism. Let me help you to feel the real essence of my city through the eyes of a real caribbean guy who lives and enjoys this majestic city.

Welcome to Cartagena, I look forward to meeting you!

The space

Feel at home, everything is available to you. If you want to dance, have a few beers or just talk about anything in Spanish, Portuguese or English, this is your place. Mi casa es su casa!

Guest access

I work all day but in the nights we can share a tour of Cartagena. I'm a good chef and I can make delicious local dishes for you.

Interaction with guests

Colombian people are nice people. It would make me so happy if you go back with a better idea of how people from my city and my country really are.

Other things to note

My place is close to 3 different malls that have cinema, good shopping and plenty of different food options. You can get to these malls by walking for 10-20 minute or by taking a motorbike taxi for 2.000 Pesos (less than 1 USD) or a regular taxi for 6.000 Pesos (2 USD).

Miguel made us feel very welcome from the start. We only stayed one night, and left very early but upon our arrival Miguel asked if we were hungry and drove us to get a really delicious street burger. He was very knowledgeable and informative about Caribbean life in Cartagena. If we weren't so tired we probably would have had a beer with him and chatted with him more. The place is basic but it was worth the hospitality from Miguel. Thank you Miguel!

We had a wonderful stay at Miguels place. Miguel is really passionate about Cartagena and the Caribbean lifestyle and he is very willing to share his passion. We went dancing together in a local bar, watched a good movie and had many pleasant conversations. Also: Cartagena is an amazing city!

Miguel was a great host, he made time at the weekend to show me the city and to take me to a champeta bar. I even got coffee in the morning! The room is basic but for travellers is perfect, the fan in the bedroom is really quite effective. The location certainly gives an idea of real life in Cartagena, rather than simply the touristic perception taken from inside the city wall

Miguel is a nice guy and very welcoming of guests into his home. Place is located a little outside the historic old city (coordinates are (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN); useful as (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Maps isn't reliable in Cartagena) but an Uber there will only cost you $10-12k pesos depending on traffic. The fan in the room isn't really adequate for dealing with the heat, but if no one is staying in the lounge room and you leave your door open with the air con on it becomes more manageable. No hot water in the shower but with the heat and humidity this isn't a deal breaker. Cleanliness in the kitchen can also be a bit of an issue depending on how many people are staying at the place at once. Overall, not a bad place and pretty good value.

Miguel is the ideal host. He's a great guy to hang out with and experiencing a stay in his neighborhood gives you great insight into what the city is all about. His place is a short and fairly cheap ride away from the center of the city and its worth it to see what life is like for the working class people of Cartagena. Definitely a safe neighborhood, I never felt threatened. In fact, I felt very welcomed there. If you're someone who likes to visit the popular spots, but also enjoys a taste of an authentic lifestyle and culture, I recommend it. And be sure to ask Miguel where to find the best arepa in town. Enjoy!

This place is good for backpackers or if you are on a budget. It's not anything fancy, but it offers a bed, fan, shower, and area to cook and hangout. The host is nice and the neighborhood was cool to check out. I felt very safe.
