  • The Lowdown

    A Night Dancing at Cafe Havana

    If the interiors and the Havana Club mojitos don't summon up sympathetic feelings for Castro's Cuba, the rhythms of the house band certainly will.

    With air conditioning the only notable change since it opened, the live music and old school ambiance remain the big draw.

    The band comes on around 23:00. After being energized by the first set you get just long enough to charge your glasses and catch your breath before they return for a second hit. The music keeps coming until 03:00.

    If you're not tripping the light fantastic, sit back and enjoy the flashpackers tripping over themselves as they try to dazzle the city's Hoi Polloi with the precarious, toe-mangling result of two weeks' intensive salsa class.

    Forget Las Vegas-style table service, This Is Cartagena, so you shouldn’t expect the same sort of levels of attention you would receive in the US.

    You will have USD$50 per person behind the bar and drinks aren’t as expensive as they would be in the hottest clubs in New York or Los Angeles so that money goes a long way towards a great night out.

    Anything extra spent after the initial tab runs out is on you. If you have any questions about this or organising a party weekend in Cartagena you can contact our team of travel experts on: [email protected]

    This Is Cartagena was a part of the great experience we had in Cartagena. We booked the tours around Getsemani and the Historic Center.

    Best way to learn about the city before exploring on your own, is with Willy. Luckily, we were the only ones on the tour so It actually turned into a private experience.

    If you are looking to see the city as a traveller instead of a tourist, this is the ultimate experience. Alex, the tour guide, was exceptional. He is knowledgeable, personable, and inspiring.

    I worked with Maria on finding the right location and setting to propose to my girlfriend. She was unbelievably helpful throughout the whole experience and made sure everything was setup and in place to make the moment perfect.
