    What to Expect
    Depart from either your hotel in Bocagrande or a central Cartagena location to begin your exuberant expedition. Climb aboard your colorful chiva bus and absorb the electric atmosphere created by lively music and excited chatter. 
    Sip refreshing rum and coke cocktails as the music bursts into life and you embark on a tour of the UNESCO World Heritage Listed walled city; admire legendary landmarks and listen to comic commentary as you sample local Colombian fritters and enjoy the festive atmosphere. 
    Drive past the fabulous fortification of Castillo San Felipe de Barajas, a protective castle that reigns supreme from the top of San Lazaro Hill. Learn about the purpose of its construction and its ancient 14th century origin before travelling to the impressive archways of Las Bóvedas, in which bespoke boutiques and quaint craft shops sell artisan treasures. 
    Keep the party spirit pumping as you arrive at one of the city’s most popular nightclubs; enjoy free admission and an exuberant ambience as you prepare to dance the night away. Move to Latin, electronic and salsa songs as they pulsate from state-of-the-art speakers, enjoying South American rhythms like reggaeton and vallenato (popular folk music from Colombia).
    When the clock strikes midnight, return to the bus and relax during the journey back to your hotel. Stay at the club until the early hours if you wish, however return transportation must be arranged independently.

    It sounds like a good idea to ride a bus around town with live music and see the city at night, but because this party tour last for about 3 hours it gets a bit boring after the first hour. also they cram 6-7 people...More
