Guests of Casa Maria Cartagena are treated to the breakfast of their choosing each morning. Fresh fruits overflow in our kitchen and fresh juices are served everyday. We make Colombian coffee in the local style – café con leche – or you may have a latte or cappuccino to start your day.

We offer a full bar and minibars in each room, and guests may purchase wine, beer, spirits, and sodas from Casa Maria at prices just slightly above local stores. We would be happy to prepare fresh mojitos, rum punch, coco limon, or any other tropical cocktail you might desire.

Casa Maria Cartagena has a full kitchen and a terrace grill. If you wish, you may cook yourself or we can provide a chef to prepare meals for you. We use a variety of chefs, including a vegetarian chef, and would be happy to arrange for the menu of your choosing.

If you would like fresh fish, we are happy to go to the fish market for you early in the morning to get the best local catch for your meal.
