: Cartagena: 7 Seas Productions

Cartagena de Indias is in many ways comparable to Havana: a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the same ethnic mix of white Spanish immigrants, black slaves and Indian aborigines, a colonial old city and great beaches. In addition, the modern, vibrant city has a perfect Miami-like skyline, plus many unique and unspoiled locations. Put all this together with a rich Creole cuisine and the magic realism of a García Marquez novel and the perfect production site for fashion, editorial and advertising shoots unfolds.

Cartagena is Colombia's window to the world, meaning that security is a must. People are at ease, salsa rhythms are in the air, and the Caribbean breeze turns the city into one of the most enchanting places in South America.

There are daily flights from Miami which is only 2.5 hours away. Casting agencies are available on site, and all categories of hotels and cosy bed & breakfasts are available at South American prices. On top of that, it remains 30° Celsius all year around.
