Anyone who disagrees with that old saw, “variety is the spice of life,” obviously hasn’t been to enjoy the nightlife in Colombia. Take, for example, the bar and club scene in its capital city, which has more spice than Victoria Beckham’s old group.
Colombia’s nightlife is the stuff of legends. Sweat-soaked salsa abounds in cities like Cali and Barranquilla, while reggaeton rules the roost in Caribbean spots such as Cartagena and Santa Marta. In the more cosmopolitan cities such as Bogotá and Medellín you’ll be able to find everything from small tiendas blasting vallenato into the night air to the latest minimal electro playing in trendy, open-air clubs.
