Welcome to Cartagena and all it's marvelous nightlife excitement. One of the biggest reasons for it being a destination get away is because of its renowned bars, discos, and other seasoned nightlife activities. Cartagena's population is well over a million, but generally the city is basically cut into two parts, making it much more quaint and much smaller than it really it is.
The party scene is a virtual destiny for everyone, and has something that will entice the avid night owl. Some of the highlights include, sipping champagne on the beach, how about dancing the night away in a 80's style rock disco, along with the moving and grooving of the salsa scene-Caribbean style.
The biggest main stream of the nightlife is found in the Calle del Arsenal, in the neighborhood known as the Getsemani. There are also other options available in the inner walled city. The inner walled city has some of the finest restaurants, and cobblestone streets for walking and one gets a real sense of the old colonial days.
General areas for tourists and visitors to really enjoy and bask in the never ending enchantment of the busy nightlife are Zona Rosa, which has its fill of bars, nightclubs, taverns, and disco's one will always find Columbians on holiday in the area. Avenida Arsenal was once the hottest go-to-place around for local weekend club hopping, however it has lost some of its mojo, and now a lot of the action has moved to Ciudad Vieja (old city).
If heading down that way for a quick vacation get-away, or perhaps really stay awhile and get know the country, the city, it's people and culture and how they party the nights away then here are a few hot spots to check out and keep on one's to do list.
