Cartagena Independence Week

Overview

Cartagena Independence Week is a great time to visit this magical city. On November 11, 1811, Cartagena became the first Colombian city to declare independence from Spain. This declaration of independence is the event that kickstarted the Latin American Wars of Independence.

This is a national holiday, so you will find Colombia’s jet-set from the big cities (Bogota, Medellin & Cali) in Cartagena enjoying the festivities. The beaches are packed, and the nightlife is incredible during this time. From Wednesday to Sunday, there are parades and special events all over the city.

Unlike other times of the year, Cartagena has a ton of big events during this week such as the Batalla de las Flores (parade on Cartagena’s main avenue), as well as concerts and the local beauty queen competition. The Miss Colombia National Beauty Pageant also happens during this week, but with the cancellation of this event in 2023, we do not think it will go on in future years.

Our Cartagena Independence Week Travel Package includes access to the top events as well as giving you VIP access to the hottest parties in Cartagena that week. We also include hotel accommodation, airport transfers, a city tour as well as have on-location staff to assist you in Cartagena all week.
