I went to Cartagena last fall with Escape to Shape and loved it. It was a great vacation that allowed me to have fun, keep in shape and relax in an incredible place. The best part of the trip was the amazing villa that we got to stay in. It truly made me feel like one of those people on Vh1’s “The fabulous life of the rich and famous”. I was in a huge villa in the center of the walled in city with a staff that catered to my every need. The best part of this all- inclusive vacation was that I could choose how to spend my time. They offered a wide array of activities but didn’t pressure or require you to take part in any of them. If you wanted to do yoga you could but if instead you wanted to sit on the terrace sunbathing or take a dip in the pool or hot tub you could. The owners have a great understanding of what it means to be on vacation and it leads to everyone having a great time.DCtravelman August 2012
