Paint the town red while staying in the black - The lowdown to hippest happiest hours in Cartagena

Cocktail Happy Hour GuidePaint the town red while staying in the black

Cocktail hour is a happy hour anywhere in the world, but if your budget is on the backpacker side in Cartagena, you'll be left swigging national beer all evening in a sour corner of Getsemani. Not a good Caribbean look. 

But It's not all Arguardiente and plastic cups if you put your mind to it. Head out early (cheap drinks and sunsets are a great mix), and you can drink in style without much effort.

We've hunted down the cheapest cocktail and beer combos in town and created the hottest list of happy hours in Cartagena.
