Cartagena’s Best Beach Party: Cholon Island

You’ve seen the photos splattered all over Instagram—the sun drenched beaches, the boats gathered round in the Caribbean Sea, the beautiful people dancing in waist-high, crystal clear water with a cocktail in hand. Well, if you’re dying to get off your phone and experience all that in person, then you can’t miss the party at Cholon Island.

Cartagena is known for its epic nightlife, but one of its best parties happens right off the coast. Every day—yes, you read that right—all the cool kids gather at Cholon Island for a day of soaking up the sun, swimming, snorkeling, and of course, partying. The boats line up around the island, while each one blasts music for everyone to dance to. Cholon also offers a bar with the usual tropical cocktails, as well as typical Caribbean dishes for lunch… we can smell the fried fish and coconut rice now! Jump in the water and cool off or party from the comfort of your boat. Either way, the Cholon Island vibes are guaranteed to make you feel like a VIP, while inspiring jealousy in your friends back home. It’s no doubt the best beach party in Cartagena.

Alright, we get it. Now you’re even more convinced you need to get to Cholon ASAP. The question is how?!

Well, there are a few ways to get to Cholon. If you’re traveling with a group, consider renting a private boat. Hi Cartagena offers plenty of options for private boat rentals from comfortable speedboats to luxury yachts that’ll turn heads as you approach the island. If you’re a solo traveler or someone visiting with a smaller group of people, have no fear! We also offer a shared Cholon Island Party tour

With the shared tour, you’ll hop on one of our speedboats for the trip to Cholon. Along the way, you’ll get to know your new party mates with the help of some liquid courage coming from our open bar. That’s right. From the moment you get on the boat, we’ll provide unlimited Colombian rum, beer, mixers and water. Before reaching Cholon, we’ll also make a quick stop for swimming and snorkeling at another island nearby before finally arriving at the main attraction! We’ll take good care of you all day with a host on board to make sure your cups are never empty and that your lunch (also included with the tour price) is exactly to your liking.

If you’re headed to Colombia, don’t miss out on all the fun of Cartagena’s beach party!
