Despite the reputation it gained from Pablo Escobar and other notorious drug lords, Colombia is now a safe and fun bachelor party destination for Americans looking for a unique South American getaway. With a lively nightlife, Caribbean beaches and islands, luxury vacation rentals, adventure tours and an unsurpassed sensuality that only Colombian women can deliver, it’s no wonder this is one of the world’s top party destinations.

Cartagena is the obvious base of operations for your Colombia bachelor party, but don’t be afraid to explore other cities — Medellin has turned into an expat haven, San Gil has become an adrenaline-sports mecca and Tayrona National Park offers authentic local culture. And if you need an easy fix of Vegas-style nightlife, there are plenty of options within three hours’ flight time.

You’ll need a solid team of planners to pull off an epic bachelor party in Colombia, especially if you plan on hitting the capital city of Medellin or its beachy sister, Cartagena. That’s why you’ll want to work with a VIP party planning team like the guys at Cartagena VIP. They’ll set you up with a world-class bachelor party planner to handle everything from luxury home rentals to VIP services at the best clubs in Colombia.

The city of Medellin is a hotbed for bachelor parties thanks to its burgeoning nightlife scene. The gentrified, club-lined El Poblado is a surefire spot for wild parties, but it’s also worth exploring the rougher neighborhood of La 70 for cheap drinks and salsa DJs. And don’t forget to check out Guatape, a mountainous lake retreat town with a massive rock that rivals Rio de Janeiro’s Sugar Loaf.

Once the sun goes down, it’s time to get the blood pumping. Take a ride in an open-air taxi called a chiva, which blasts music and flashes LEDs as it zips you from bar to plaza to club. It’s about $20 a man and half the fun is mingling with other chiva riders, who often race each other and have as much fun jabbing at each other as they do riling up the crowds.

Colombia is known for its coffee, so you’ll want to take the time to sample a cup or two. It’s not only delicious, but it can give you the energy you need to stay up all night partying at the best bars in Cartagena. Or head to an infamous strip club, where you can get down with the dancers who’ve wooed U.S. Secret Service officers in the past. It may be tacky, but it’s an experience you won’t find anywhere else. And the views are breathtaking, too. Colombia Bachelor Party
