Bye Bye 2019 Bay Party

You will have a one of a lifetime spot to catch the fireworks and have a delicious served meal, enjoy the music and shake your body with an amazing view to share with your loved ones!

Our favourite spots for taking in the show is on Cartagena’s historic walls, over the Baluartes or Café del Mar, really excellent spots so you can enjoy the show, the city will be crowded so you better be ready early and have some dancing on the street but hurry to find your spot with the options presented to celebrate.

Club de Pesca

Looking for something outside the city walls, perhaps a little more low-key, but with all the perks such as a view of the glittering fireworks, a three-course meal, and live music? Your best bet is to head to the Club de Pesca. This super romantic spot perched on the sea walls offers stunning views of the old city and Bocagrande and is guaranteed to be a blast.


Enjoy three stories of madness in Alquímico at New Year’s Eve – a vintage speakeasy-style bar where Mixology is an art that is taken seriously. New Years parties at Alquímico are usually themed and always epic; expect mind-blowingly good food, delicious cocktails, and music good enough to keep you dancing until the small hours of the morning. Head up to the rooftop terrace to check out the fireworks.
