• Cartagena Nightlife : - After dark, have a quiet, relaxing evening. You can take a ride through the narrow streets of the Old City in a horse-drawn carriage and romanticize the old times.
A very different nocturnal tour is a chiva trip through Cartagena. These open-air buses painted in gaudy colors are native to Colombia. Onboard is a trio of musicians and—just as important to the experience—an open bar with Colombian drinks. Passengers hang out the windows and shout at pedestrians and people in other vehicles making the rounds of Bocagrande and Manga. After a drive through the old walled city and a stop at the Plaza de las Bovedas for light snacks, the tour ends at a disco.
• Performing Arts : - For performing arts, visit Teatro Heredia in downtown Cartagena. Some of Colombia's best theater groups, such as El Teatro Libre and El Teatro La Candelaria, perform there frequently, as well as the Colegio del Cuerpo, a local dance company. Teatro Heredia is also is the cornerstone venue for the Classical Music Festival, an international event organized by the Salvi Foundation and held every year in January.
