When you're just coming off the bustle and stress of daily life, it can be hard to settle into vacation mode even if you've already traveled the miles and are in location. The peacefulness of vacation can sometimes be too good to handle! On your next visit to Cartagena, Colombia, however, be sure to stop by the Rosario Islands and especially the new boutique Hotel Carolina where the top notch service and breathtaking tropical Caribbean setting will surely make you forget about your responsibilities for just a second.
While Rosario Island is a fine place to be, one of our favorite reasons to come out here is to enjoy Hotel Carolina's gourmet lunches set right next to sparkling aquamarine waters. Unique to the island, Carolina's chefs and kitchen offer guests 8 generations' worth of tradition and love. Flavors are Caribbean mixed with a touch of French flair, and of course grandmother's care.
On the lunch menu you will find typical favorites such as fresh fish with coconut rice, or ceviche style seafood with yucca sticks and a secret blend of spices.
At night, you might indulge in some locally caught shrimp, a full Colombian style meat BBQ, or maybe an expertly made stew of chicken, vegetables, and mashed banana chips.
Drinks to wash it all down with include freshly pressed fruit juices, beers, and wines.
No matter what you choose, a meal at Carolina Hotel makes for a good reason to get out of Cartagena for the day and enjoy some fantastic food while listening to the Caribbean waves lap up on the shore.
