“We welcome BD Promotores Colombia to the industry with its new property in the Cartagena area,” said Marcos Agostini, Interval’s senior vice president of resort sales and business development for Latin America. “The destination’s popularity is reinforced by year-over-year increases in tourist arrivals. This growth, when coupled with consumer interest in shared ownership in Colombia, creates ideal conditions for BD Cartagena Beach Club to enter the market.”
“We also recognize that owning vacation time is very compelling to many consumers and are confident that BD Cartagena Beach Club will be one of the most appealing shared ownership properties in the country,” noted Venerando Lamelas, president of BD Promotores Colombia and the resort developer.
Located in the exclusive area of Punta Canoa just 20 miles north of Cartagena’s old city, the resort will feature two-bedroom units with a spacious living-dining area and the latest electronics. Among the planned on-site amenities is a large open-air freshwater pool with a deck and cabanas. Owners and guests will also have access to the amenities at the adjacent hotel, such as restaurants with national and international cuisine, spa, gym, kids’ and teens’ clubs, equestrian center, 650-foot salt-water lake, tennis courts, and water sports. Additional activities available in the area include golf, hiking, and biking.
Cartagena is the fifth largest city in Colombia and a popular beach destination for national and international visitors. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984, the city combines Spanish colonial buildings, 400-year-old plazas, churches and museums with a vibrant nightlife, array of restaurants, busy local markets, and cultural festivals.
