New Year Cartagena

Ring in the New Year in Historical Cartagena – Colombia’s Best New Year’s Celebration

Cartagena over the last few years truly has become the destination of choice for the ‘in-the-know’ people around the world. Sure NYC celebrates New Year’s Eve big but if you want to experience something truly spectacular for New Year, book a vacation in Cartagena for the New Year. This Caribbean gem turns into an endless party for the New Year Celebration with parades, performances, and pyrotechnics. And all of it under the gorgeous Caribbean skies—not a snowflake to be found!

The whole days-long festival begins on the evening of the 24th when everyone walks around the old city, taking in the sights and sounds. 25th December is typically spent chilling in the casa with family and friends. Come the 26th and onwards the old city starts to culminate in an extravaganza like you’ve never seen before. Fireworks, nightclub dance parties spilling into the streets, private gatherings with your new friends, the chance to spot international movie stars—it just doesn’t get any better.

Plus, unlike a trip to the Big Apple, A New Year’s getaway in Cartagena affords you all of the exceptional bonuses of being in a historic and picturesque Caribbean paradise. Warm yourself in the sun and the sands of the Rosario Islands (just 45 minutes away by boat) or visit some of the most culturally in historically significant sites in the New World. Then, when the sun goes down, put on your best evening clothes for a non-stop celebration all through the night.

Experience the best of Colombian and Caribbean culture all in one—amazing international food, exceptional musical and dance performances, beautiful people from Colombia and all over the world, and sumptuous Latin luxury all couched in the historic heart of the Spanish Caribbean.
