Cartagona, Colombia, Feb. 15 (UPI) The city of Cartagón is set to open a hotel in the coastal town of Cartago to cater to residents who want to visit for leisure.
Cartagon is the capital of the province of Cartags, home to a small but growing population of fishermen.
Residents of the town, along with the city of Bilbao, the region’s second-largest city, are looking for something to do.
“Cartagona is a very beautiful place, and so many people are looking at the possibilities to live in this beautiful place,” Bilbaos Mayor Ana Teresa García told The Next World.
García is one of a handful of mayors from the region who have come out to talk about the possibility of opening a new tourist destination in the city.
Cartags is located on the Gulf of Cancun, a tropical paradise in the western region of Colombia.
There is a beach on the island of Cáceres, which is located near Cartago, and nearby villages and towns are home to hundreds of islands.
“There are some areas in Cartagons, especially on the islands, that are really popular for the tourism industry,” García said.
“We have a great number of islands and we want to offer more places to enjoy and have more opportunities for people to come and enjoy.”
García plans to open the hotel at the start of the month and hopes it will attract a large number of tourists.
The city is a city of 2.8 million people and is located in the northern part of the Gulf.
Cartagos is home to many tourist sites, including the famous El Caballero Beach.
The beach is located off the coast, but there is a small airstrip nearby.
Garcías office said there are many other beaches in Cartagos, which are considered by some to be one of the world’s best places to have a beach holiday.
The region’s tourism industry is booming and there are plans to expand the tourist industry to the mainland by the end of 2019.
“This is the ideal place for tourism, so we need to find the right places,” García said.
Garcia said the city plans to develop the tourism potential of the area.
“Tourism is a good way to create jobs, to generate income and to create economic activity.
We have an area of approximately 3,000 square kilometers of coastline, so it is not only a place for a beach, it is a place to have an island, a small island, for example,” she said.
The mayor hopes to find an island for tourists to stay at during the first half of 2019, but she said that there are other possibilities.
“It will be a good option to stay in the summer and we hope to find more opportunities in the future,” Garcia added.
