A designated UNESCO World Heritage site, the city offers up amazing food, a rich culture, stunning architecture perfect for photo ops, and ummm… the eye candy is in abundance too. Be sure to try the sancocho , fresh ceviche, arepas and empanadas. The hotel works with local farmers, fisherman and artists to ensure that all of the delectable menu offerings at the hotel restaurants are locally-sourced. From there, a San Basilio de Palenque Tour is a must. During the day, grab your girls and wander through the cobblestone historic streets of Old Town and take in the beautiful sites. The Conrad recruits and hires youth from surrounding native communities; many of whom were displaced by violence. Scattered through the streets are the Las Pelenquera, or the fruit basket ladies, who wear brightly colored dresses and carry baskets of fruit around on their heads through the city.
