We celebrated a bachelorette party in Cartagena with seven close girlfriends in mid-February. As the host and trip organizer, it was a big responsibility to not only exceed everyone’s travel expectations, including the bride most importantly, but also to keep everyone safe while we had fun. Our entire group is well-traveled, enjoys five-star experiences, and minds the fine details.
Finding Prime Cartagena was an absolute Godsend and game changer. I simply let Chris know what we had in mind, our tastes, preferences then from there he handled EVERYTHING. Chris set up our transportation to and from the airport, all reservations, tours, beauty/health services, restaurants, bars, shows, boat rental, grocery shopping, setting up & shopping for receptions at our hotel, you name it. Chris and his team did it all and did it very well. Even things we didn’t ask for, they thought through for us and made sure our trip was comfortable from start to finish.
I mentioned safety was a concern, especially for some of our high-profile guests. Prime Cartagena provided personal protection services and a bi-lingual concierge for our entire stay. Sammy was our bodyguard and Jamie was our concierge. Let me just say WOW!!! We never left the hotel without Sammy & Jamie by our side and leading the way day and night. Sammy & Jamie both got along so well with our group making it feel like we had known them for years.
Sammy is basically the mayor of Cartagena – everywhere you go people know him, respect him, tip their hats to him. Any place we wanted to go, he knew how to get us in right away without standing in line or getting harassed or haggled by anyone. Even nights out, or when we were dancing our hearts out, we never once got disturbed by a single person. Mind you this was a group of seven beautiful women, wearing hot AF outfits and getting DOWN on the dancefloor. Not once did anyone come up to try to hit on us or get involved in our action. This is because Sammy & Jamie were there to run interference and keep us safe. It felt soooo nice to just enjoy our girl time and let our hair down without a care in the world.
We can’t wait to come back to Cartagena with our husbands and families…next time for a longer stay! We will definitely use Prime Cartagena services again - turnkey for everything. The highlights of our trip were boat tour to Rosario Islands, Seven 7 Times burlesque show, Cande Restaurante, Casa Lola and hanging out at various rooftop bars in the Walled City. Thank you Chris, Sammy & Jamie! We are so grateful to have met you all. Until next time! XO
