Cartagena De Indias -- When Women From Colombia Are Too Hot To Handle

Cartagena de Indias is one of the Northern Most city from Colombia. Founded in 1531 by Spanish settlers, it became a booming Seaport for seafarers, Pirates, Vice-royalty administration and slave trading point. Known today for being one of the best resorts on Caribbean shores. Average temperatures can fluctuate between 88-90 degrees fahrenheit.

From the time of emancipation from the Spanish rule in 1811, Cartagena experienced its own melting pot. In March 1741, the city endured a large-scale attack by British and American colonial troops led by admiral Edward Vernon. A total of 186 invading ships tried to take the City that was defended by just 6 Spanish vessels. Weather and luck were on the Spaniard side. But we wonder, how many English survivors stayed at Cartagena? We believe that around 20% of those foreign invaders stayed and made Cartagena its final Home. After the Hitlerian Genocide, many Jewish survivors emmigrated to Caribbean shores, Like Caracas, Santo Domingo, and Cartagena, of course.

From Lebanese, to Basque and back to Russians

After World War I, South America was seen as the new haven away from the perils from the old world. Some immigrants made it to Rio Brazil or Argentina. But others chose the Caribbean.

Ever heard of Venezuelan Beauties that mostly make it to the top ten at the Miss Universe Pageant? Well Cartagena de indias (Cartegena of the Indies) is just a couple of hundred miles from Caracas. Women are a mixture of races that blended with a rich culture added to its paradisiacal temperatures. Colombian Women by nature are approachable... and have that beauty... seen in Shakira, or even Sophia Vergara. On the other side we have Adriana Lima and Guiselle Bundschen (Brazil)


The incident at the Caribe Hotel

The Secret Service reprimanded

President Obama traveled to Cartagena on Friday 13th, 2012 for the Summit of the Americas. Top secret service elite arrived a week before to check on the spot critical security issues. AF1 took off from Tampa FL. at 14:30 p.m..... but away from regular news, what really happened two night before?

Seems that 'stress,' the search for the 'unknown' and just trying to have a good time got out of hand. Are we men really dogs? Media gets its share and slightly tries to cover up the whole story. Unless we investigate Spanish networks and get a whole deal of an investigation.

Just mix, 88 degrees, a nice beach, some Margaritas, rum, and a few "business cards", and then you are set for the night...or 'till morning do them apart. According to Colombian´╗┐ authorities things got out of hand at the Hotel and reached the high Command. It's not that men will be men, but these things happen all the time and do not make it to our media, unless a 'chick' thought she didn't get paid for her own 'secret service.'

See? this doesn't apply to the saying,"only in America." We hope, sincerely hope that our men's wives don't find out. Ops!

Hasta la vista amigas!

Colombia and Venezuelan women really are beautiful...I would add a word of caution for gringo tourists: Some of these women are after the "green" in your wallet.

Faith Reaper,

Thanks for commenting. Unfortunately we cannot predict things after our boys reached home. All is kept secret...for security reasons.


@Hi DebbiePinkston, There is not special training when it comes to aroused stat of minds. And sadly you are right... In some cases, some cash can lead to stupid sinfulness.

@Gogogo! This was an almost behind the scenes self breifing, but South American journalists love this kind of news. Thanks for reading us.

@MaRIA, Marcoujor, You ARE ALWAYS funny! You didn't sound catty this time. Glad you stopped by. Say hi to all the Jordans.

Great article lord de cross. Good looking city, and; good looking women. Furthermore, thanks for making reference to the people of Columbia's ethnically diverse background. Cuba, also has a diverse community, Lebanese, Jewish, Russian and even Chinese.

I enjoyed the hub and voted up


PS. Shakira is half Syrian, I think?

Thanks again Maria! We will see what can we do for ya! You know..?

@@Johnny Sarkis, our Piano man! Yep Shakira is half Syrian, as Steve Jobs and Lebanese on her dad's side. I know so well about diversity in Cuba. Corsaries and some mercenaries stayed back. Artisans and oriental amigos made cube their land. Cuban Women have its own rhytm and class, dancing to the beat of a mambo and that cha-cha-cha! Salsa!

Great Hub, and so timely too. Cartagena is such an interesting name that it has always gotten my attention when I see a news item from there. This was some good background information. Those Secret Service guys put their careers on the line with this caper, and will probably be working for some private security service after they are (deservedly) sacked for it. Sounds as if some military types were procuring, I hope some low level NCO doesn't end up with the blame for that.

Great Hub. I looked for it after seeing your comment on Cardisa's Hub. I will be reading more from you.

You remind me of some movies like salt. We've been In Colombia several times... like in any country, women can be dangerous... even for our own president's security. Not that our Colombian friends are all bad, but there a few others that can kill with their looks Thanks for your words, very appreciated.

I guess what happens in Columbia doesn't always stay in Columbia. Scandalous and interesting. Wow.

You would think that the President's men would know better. I don't know who this is more embarrasing for: The U.S. for the way these men behaved, or Colombia, for it's women on the prowl.

Well there are updates on the matter. The president wants a full investigation, even if the top command gets on his way. This was inadmissible!

@Debbie Pickinston,

According to our own sources in Colombia. There was a national security breach...Some critical info could've been traced and picked up by wiring the Hotel and its surroundings. We do not get all the news in here. But some heads are already rolling... into the doors of Black Water.

You really hooked me in on this one! I didn't realize what you were heading for until you were already there. I like the way you started your article and the facts and pictures you included before getting to yet another American embarassment! As debbiepinkston said, I'm not sure who should be more embarassed. Voted up and interesting.

Thanks for your support and time Tillsontitan. The embarassment is mutual and Sometimes I think, I guess Michelle was checking on her hubby, every single hour. Just to get him back safe and sound; You never know how things can evolve... in a foreign land.
