Lucha Libre + Mezcal Tasting

Lucha libre in Mexico City

A night of Mexican wrestling is not only one of the most enjoyable things you can do in Mexico City, but also a great way to “dive in” to seriously authentic Mexican pop culture!  This tour is a fantastic trip for groups especially.  

In readiness for an evening of Lucha Libre, we´ll first take you to a local place for some mezcal tasting, where we’ll also teach you some of the key phrases for your night in Arena Mexico – the cathedral of Lucha Libre – which takes place every Tuesday, Friday and Sunday night. It’s the perfect warm up, before we head to the 17,000 seat stadium for an evening of Mexican wrestling.  You’ll be close to the action, cheering on the iconic masked wrestlers (or luchadores) as good wrestles evil in a high energy spectacle.  The atmosphere cannot be beaten, and we’ll make sure you have masks, drinks, pizza and chicharrón (salty pork scratchings!) to accompany this wild night of sporting prowess.

Comuna 13 is a great place to explore during the day. You can check out the stunning graffiti, try some street food, and even rap-battle the local kids there, as they love interacting with tourists.  

Or escape the city to visit the idyllic countryside and picturesque town of Guatapé. Home to an incredible naturally-formed volcanic rock that has a massive 708 steps to the top, it’s an unmissable photo opportunity.

Get that adrenaline pumping, and soar like a bird over stunning green pastures near Colombia’s coffee region. This exhilarating experience will make you feel so alive and is sure to blow away the cobwebs of the routine of daily life. Or you can take advantage of the rough terrains of the countryside and go out on an ATV adventure. This is one of our most popular bachelor party activities. There’s no experience needed, and the trails have varying difficulty levels. Take a walk on the wild side and explore Colombia on a quad bike! 

Night-time activities

Top Tips for your Bachelor Party 

You may be wondering where the best place to stay is with your bachelor party in Medellin. El Poblado is a popular and convenient option, as it is right in the middle of the action. You can find many bachelor pads and penthouses in Poblado and near the famous Lleras Park. You can literally step right out of your apartment or villa and find some of the best bars, clubs and restaurants in the city. There are also some other more exclusive locations in Medellin, such as Alto de las Palmas. This sought-after neighborhood is a little further up the mountain and boasts stunning views over the valley. Its location allows for a little more privacy, and the absence of neighbors in some villas means that the parties can be bigger, better, and louder!

Speaking of accommodation; you will want to make sure you book accommodations early. The best villas and penthouses can get booked up, especially during peak season (generally December through March). We have exclusive access to elite properties that aren’t on AirBnB, so lock in your property with us as early as possible. Unlike Cartagena, where most of the touristic areas are condensed within a smaller radius, Medellin is a sprawling city. Transportation is an important consideration for you and your bachelor group. For big groups, hiring a bigger van that fits all of you can often be more cost-effective than paying for separate taxis.

With so many moving parts involved in planning your bachelor party in Medellin, it’s best to leave the bachelor party planning to the experts. We can arrange from the smallest detail to the most extravagant adventure. Our goal is to make sure you and your group have the best time ever, and that your bachelor party is memorable for all the right reasons.

Bachelor Party in Medellin or Cartagena?

After reading this, and our Cartagena Bachelor & Bachelorette Party Ideas page, you might be unsure of which destination is best for you. If you are looking for a Miami-style, beach vacay at a fraction of the cost, Cartagena is calling you. Think yacht parties, Colonial mansions, and private islands. If you prefer big-city vibes and cooler climes, head to Medellin. In Medellin, you can find a bigger variety of clubs and bars, more adventure activities, and more beautiful women. The choice is yours.

This client used Two Travel to plan his friend’s Bachelor Party in Medellin. They were a large group of 14 people and wanted to pack as many activities into 4 days. Here’s an extract from his review:  

“If Two Travel is operating in a city I travel to, I will 100% be using them to make sure I have the best experience possible.
In addition to making sure all of the planned events were executed and handled with exceptional detail, we were lucky to have Daniel O. with us the entire trip. Especially on nights we went out and experienced the nightlife, having Daniel with us was priceless. If Daniel is with your crew, you basically have the most well-connected person in Medellin. He knows everyone in Medellin / Provenza area and regardless of your group’s vibe he knows the perfect spot. Outside of that, he was amazing at accommodating last-minute requests and making sure our group was safe at all times.”

Medellin Nightlife – the Best Places to Party in Medellin

Medellin apartment

There has never been a better time to visit Medellín, Colombia. This vibrant, international city has recently been awarded 3rd best city to visit in the world by Time Out magazine. While we are proud of this achievement, we are by no means surprised. Alongside impressive architecture, sleek startups, and incredible gastronomy, Medellín’s nightlife has been internationally recognized as being one of the best in the world. 

Medellín is the birthplace of famous Reggaeton and pop artists J Balvin, Karol G, and Maluma. Next time you find yourself singing along to “Provenza” by Karol G, you’ll realize that she is singing about the famous party neighborhood frequented by the young and beautiful crowd of Medellín. There is so much to be discovered in Medellín at night. But with so many bars and clubs in Medellín, it’s often difficult to know where to head first.

Where is the nightlife in Medellín?

Medellin at night

El Poblado (Parque Lleras and Provenza)

From Hipster to High-Class, for a perfect Medellin night

The majority of the best clubs and bars in Medellin are located in el Poblado, a vast and affluent central neighborhood. As el Poblado is so big, you’ll want to be specific about where you’re headed, so make sure you keep this guide at hand. The famous Parque Lleras is a Medellín nightlife must-see. Here, you can find a ton of bars, restaurants, and clubs. It’s a great place to wander around to start your night and soak up the party mood. Parque Lleras is a tree-lined square filled with people, music, and mischief. It is the beating heart of Medellín´s nightlife, with a high density of clubs and bars. At night, the atmosphere is electric.

Our personal preference, however, is to go out to clubs a little more off the beaten track than right in central Lleras. For example, Provenza is a smaller locality, situated within el Poblado. Just a stone’s throw from Parque Lleras, Provenza is definitely the place to see and be seen. Expect classier vibes compared to Lleras. From hipster hole-in-the-wall bars to three-storey clubs, there is something for everyone in this trendy neighborhood. Prices are higher in some of the better clubs and bars compared to other neighborhoods, as good taste doesn’t come cheap. Provenza and Lleras, and everything in between, are often teeming with foreigners and Colombians alike, as they are some of the most touristic spots in Medellín, but for good reason. Here, you will find stylish decor and banging tunes, from Latino beats to EDM.

Laureles

La 70 – For an authentic Colombian fiesta

If you want something less gringo and more Colombian, head to Laureles. In La 70, or “La Setenta”, as it is locally known, you are sure to find a lot of color, lights and dancing. Here, booze is cheaper and there are fewer foreigners. Step out of your comfort zone and take a salsa class. Two left feet? Not a problem, the paisas (locals from Medellín) are so friendly, you’re sure to find a friendly Colombiana (or Colombiano) to teach you some new moves. La 70 is the center of the Laureles party scene, and it’s an awesome place for bar-hopping. While some bars and clubs in Provenza and Poblado can give European / American vibes, parties in this neighborhood are undoubtedly Colombian.

Las Palmas

For a more exclusive vibe

If you want to try something different away from the masses, yet still experience some incredible local clubs, we highly recommend a night out in Las Palmas. This neighborhood is just a short taxi ride from El Poblado, yet you are sure to have a super fun nightlife experience away from the masses. Las Palmas, also an incredible location for exclusive villas and apartments, is at a higher altitude, so the temperature is cooler than in Poblado. Here, enjoy beautiful views of the Medellín valley at night as the entire city sparkles beneath you.

Okay, so now we know the hottest areas to head in Medellin at night. But where exactly should you go? What follows is just a few of our Medellín nightlife recommendations. If you want a whole weekend planned, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Our Medellín Nightlife Recommendations

Salón Amador

A truly unmissable experience in Medellin. Salón Amador is the flagship club for electronic music in Medellín, where house, indie dance, techno and many other forms of dance music reel in punters from across the region. They host big events with famous DJs, both nationally and internationally-known. Salón Amador even plans to launch its own record label to promote local talent. The light shows and intimate feel together with flawless playlists and perfectly mixed drinks make for an unforgettable night. 

Where?:  Calle 10 #40-30, El Poblado

Salón Amador, Medellin nightclub

Bolívar

Bolívar Medellín brings the heat and sabrosura of the Caribbean to the mountains of Medellín. Inspired by 1940s Cuba and 1980s Miami, Bolívar is a treat for the senses. Dance your socks off to reggaeton, dancehall, champeta, trap, and every last Latin hit on the charts. And if you can’t dance, you can find some beautiful and scantily-clad professional dancers who have got all the moves. Grab a tropical cocktail, join us on one of the most beautiful dance floors in town, and feel the Caribbean heat in el Poblado.

Local tip: There’s no cover charge on Thursday nights, which makes it a great option for mid-week debauchery.

Where?: Cra. 36 # 10-38, El Poblado

Bolivar nightclub, Medellín

Vintrash Bar

Vintrash is an upcycled club providing four floors of fun. Right in the heart of Provenza, it attracts a good mix of locals and foreigners. You can enjoy various ambiances; from indie, to Latin, to electronic. Head up to the rooftop to cool down after a long night’s dancing. They also serve food, which makes it a great place to start your night and line your stomach before a heavy night out on the town. We love taking bachelor and bachelorette groups to Vintrash because it’s a great place to go wild, and a guaranteed fun night out.

Where?: Cra. 35 #8A-39, El Poblado (Provenza)

Vintrash, Poblado Medellin

Gusto Nightclub

Located right in central Lleras Park, Gusto nightclub will never disappoint. Nightly escapades at Gusto involve laser light shows, beautiful girls and expertly-poured drinks. It is a great option in this super touristic area that doesn’t feel like a tourist trap.

Where?: Calle 9A, Parque Lleras #38-26

Gusto Nightclub, Medellín

Envy Rooftop

Before heading to Gusto Nightclub, however, make sure you have a sunset cocktail or two at Envy Rooftop. This stunning rooftop has an aquarium-style pool where you can cool off in the afternoon sunshine. It boats gorgeous views of the city, and has light Asian style appetizers which go down perfectly with pre-drinks. They have a live DJ and their lounge playlists are perfect for chilling before a big night out. 

Where?: Calle 9a #37-16, El Poblado

Envy Rooftop, Medellin nightlife

La Oculta Medellín

Do you ever wonder where the young locals go to party? What if we told you it was in a speakeasy-style joint, hidden behind a bookshelf? La Oculta is, like its name suggests, hard to find, but a total gem once you get in. This intimate club is small but perfectly formed, and its glittering chandelier adds a boujee touch to your night. Great to share a bottle of whiskey with a group of friends and listen to local Latin beats. 

Where?: Cra. 35 #7-114, El Poblado (Provenza)

La Oculta Medellin

Finding out secret passwords to get into hidden clubs is so much easier when you book our nighttime concierge services! Enjoy everything that Medellín’s nightlife has to offer – Click below to get a quote and a key to the city.

La Tienda de la 70

Although “tienda” technically translates to store, La Tienda de la 70 is so much more than a neighborhood store. With quintessentially paisa decorations and music, coming to this bar is more of a cultural experience than anything else. Embrace the stereotype and order a bottle of aguardiente – or guaro as the locals call it – and you’ll find yourself dancing on the tables in no time.

Where?: Bulevar Libertadores De América (Carrera 70), Laureles, Medellín

La Chula Medellin – Las Palmas

Grab a big group of friends, get plenty of drinks in, and prepare to have the time of your life at La Chula. This Mexican-themed bar-cum-club, or “Fonda”, as referred to by Medellín locals, will transport you to the loudest and most colorful corner of Mexico, right in the heart of Las Palmas. Down a shot of tequila (or three) while you listen to live mariachis in this awesome spot. If you want to party with locals, La Chula is the place to go. Right next door to La Chula, you can also find La Chula Urbana, where they play all the latest reggaeton hits. We like moving from one club to another to live the local experience.

Where?: KM 3, via Las Palmas

La chula

With a seemingly infinite list of options to choose from, Medellin nightlife is something that has to be experienced first hand. If your night ends queueing in Provenza to buy hot, freshly-made empanadas to soak up all the booze before heading back to your private villa, you know it’s been a successful night. We truly can’t wait to show you the biggest and best of this incredible city and its nightlife, in all its hedonistic glory.

If you’re ready to plan your escape to Cartagena, we’ve got you covered. This list of the top five 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 villa’s feature exquisite 19th century architecture, private pools, rooftop views, and even dedicated staff.

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 in the Caribbean are the Rosario Islands, Cartagena. Located 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 and native south-american vegetation, 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.

Isla Fragata

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, or 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!

Take a Yacht to the Islands

What you need to know before a trip to the Rosario 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 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 a yacht 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 your yacht 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.

Go Clubbing

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.

Tulum party boujee bar

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!
