If you’re ready to plan your escape to Cartagena, we’ve got you covered. This list of the top six ways to party in Cartagena includes the best places to stay, what to do, and where to eat.
Stay in a Private Villa
While there are a lot of premium hotels and resorts available in Cartagena, we think you’ll enjoy your bachelor trip a lot more if you rent a private villa for your entire entourage.
Many villas feature exquisite 19th century architecture, private pools, rooftop views, and even dedicated staff.
If you book a villa with Two Travel, we will offer you a private chef to prepare delicious meals for you and your guests during your stay, a full staff to provide daily cleaning, a professional masseuse, and a dedicated concierge to take care of any last-minute needs. At your request, you can also have a bodyguard to accompany you around the town.
No need to worry about spending hours planning a bachelorette party. We’ll take care of all the details, so you can just enjoy bonding with friends and visiting Cartagena!
Whether you want to spend your time exploring all that Cartagena has to offer or just relaxing by the pool in your secluded courtyard— a private villa is the perfect home base for your bachelor or bachelorette party!
Rent a Private Island
If you really want to treat yourself to something special, you may want to consider renting one of the many private Cartagena islands!
Our top choice for renting an island are the Rosario Islands, Cartagena – about an hour off shore of the city. These islands offer secluded white sand beaches, exotic palm trees, crystal blue waters, and stunning sunsets.
Surrounded by coral reefs, the Rosario Islands are as close as you can get to heaven on earth. They’re the perfect backdrop for a tropical bachelorette party, an unforgettable stag weekend, or even a joint bachelor and bachelorette party.
The best thing about renting a private island? It’s all yours, so you can do whatever you like, whenever you like. Throw a giant party. Stroll through tropical gardens. Relax on the beach. Go kayaking or jet skiing on the ocean.
Our private island rentals accommodate from 10 guests and come with a full staff who will cook and clean daily. All the groceries you need for your stay will be delivered to the island before you arrive. And each day you’ll get a delivery of fresh-caught fish of the day! We’ll take care of everything for you, so you can just spend your time enjoying your Cartagena vacation.
Take a Yacht to the Islands
Whether you stay at a private villa, rent an island, or opt for a resort vacation, there’s one Cartagena activity you definitely won’t want to miss out on: yachting!
If you want to enjoy a good party while taking in some breathtaking sights, renting a private yacht, speedboat or catamaran is the perfect solution for your stagette or bucks party.
As Cartagena is located right on the southern coast of the Caribbean Sea, you can board your boat directly from the Old Town. Then spend the day exploring the islands and coral reefs of Cholon, Playa Blanca, and the Islas de Rosario.
Finish the day off by watching the majesty of a Caribbean sunset on board before heading back to shore.
Too busy to think about preparing food while partying? If you rent a yacht with Two Travel, we can provide catering onboard. We’ll make sure you have everything you need to make the most of your day on the sea! Find out more about the best way to explore the islands.
If you’re idea of the perfect bachelor party entertainment involves drinking and nightlife, Cartagena has some fantastic options! This city boasts a vibrant club scene complete with craft cocktails, dancing, and even live music for some special events.
If you want to enjoy some classic clubbing in a stylish setting, try out La Jugada. This club features up-cycled interiors, craft cocktails, and a dance-ready playlist. If you book a table here, come prepared for a stylish crowd and be sure to dress with an appropriate amount of class. It’s a local favorite, so spending an evening at La Jugada is a great way to experience the culture of Cartagena.
For an unforgettable and unique nightlife experience, head to Alquímico in the Historic Walled City. This innovative club features inventive cocktails, liquor infusions, and a menu that draws from local recipes and fresh ingredients. The menu isn’t the only reason to visit Alquimico, though! This club features a gorgeous art-deco cocktail bar on the ground floor, a roof terrace with city views upstairs, and a DJ curated playlist that features a variety of trendy music styles.
The newest (and coolest) kid on the block right now is Casa Cruxada. By day, you’ll find delicious food in the two restaurants on the ground floor. By night, the place is transformed with additional floors and rooms opened up for you to explore. This club / bar / restaurant is in an enormous, crumbling Colonial building that feels like it is coming apart at the seams, in the best way possible. Here, you can hear live DJs play minimal techno beats and deep house.

Dine out – best for group parties
No Cartagena bachelorette or bachelor party would be complete without a dining experience at one of the city’s famous restaurants.
Visit Carmen for an intimate dining experience with a menu that features contemporary cuisine and authentic Colombian flavors. At Lobo Del Mar, you’ll find innovative cocktails and gastronomic creations inspired by classic Caribbean flavors and locally sourced seasonal ingredients.
For a bachelor or bachelorette party, we also love La Unica for a quality Mexican experience. It has a fun, playful vibe and has great music – from in-house DJs to live mariachi bands – incredible food, and of course a range of tequilas. Or head up to the rooftop at Buena Vida. It’s a stylish but truly Cartagenero seafood restaurant with an impressive cocktail menu, wonderful food and live music from some excellent local bands and DJs.
A Cartagena Bachelor Party or Bachelorette Beach Day
Why wait until the evening to party? In Cartagena, you can dance at any time of day or night, and we love to dance on the beach! Don’t stay on the mainland. The best beaches and beach clubs are on nearby Tierra Bomba island or further out in the Rosario Islands.
For bachelorettes, try Blue Apple Beach – not only is the food and drink spectacular, the service is always special for brides to be. If you want a dance lesson, they will always say yes. Lounge by the pool or on the beach, and if you have time, get a massage from the in-house masseuse team. You will not leave disappointed.
For bachelors, head out to Bora Bora in the Rosario Islands. Every day is a party at this famous and very popular beach club. Another option is to take an ATV tour in north Cartagena along some of the longest beaches in the city. It’s the perfect morning adventure activity for any bachelor group spending the weekend in Cartagena.
