About Las Velas

The vanilla yellow city of Cartagena de Indias has a strip of sheltered and average beachbreak, broken up by a line of short jetties. It's hard to pick any of these beaches above another, but the westernmost are the most exposed, particularly in front of the Las Velas hotel. These waves break on localised wind swell and are usually weak, messy and a muddy brown colour. Things improve only marginally along the strip of coastline between here and the next city, Barranquilla, which has a better range of waves, including Caribbean Colombia's only known reef breaks.
