Colombia has no shortage of cities conducive to some excellent mongering. Bogota, Medellin, and Cali all have reputations for having some of the most beautiful women in the world, but each of them has a few catches as well.
If you aren’t as adventurous as others may be, or if you are simply looking for a resort-style vacation to go along with the sex with some hot Colombian girls, Cartagena may be your best bet of them all.
Cartagena is certainly not lacking in heritage and history. This Caribbean coastal town was once a favorite for pirates, and was actually the first Spanish colonized city in the Americas, earning it the title of being a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The city displays both old and new, mixing in the city walls and monasteries of the Old Town, with skyscrapers and bustling city life around the beach areas.
Oh, yeah, the beach part: Cartagena has plenty of it, and the climate will constantly remind you of where you are. It’s always warm here, no matter what time of year. This, aside from the beach, history, and architecture, makes the city the most popular tourist destination in the country. As in, Colombians come to vacation here from other cities, kind of like how someone living in the Midwestern part of the U.S. goes to the Florida Gulf Coast for a vacation.
Perhaps most importantly of all, this city has a ton of girls. The majority of them seem to be working girls, but there’s plenty nonetheless. Cartagena is only the fifth largest Colombian city, but you’ll find the girl/guy ratio here to be much to your liking.
As you may imagine, there are countless of places to meet these girls here, so let’s get on with it. There are a few things you’ll need to be aware of first, however.
What to Know Beforehand
Cartagena is a tourist city first and foremost, so that means quite a few things. If you’re looking for a budget trip, you aren’t going to get it here. Everything is more expensive than other Colombian cities, especially food. Well worth it, but still. The trade-off is kinda nice though: Since this is a tourist city, the police presence is very strong, especially in the most trafficked parts of the city, which coincidentally are where you’ll be doing most of your mongering. As always, avoid bad areas and take the usual precautions, and you’ll have nothing to worry about at all.
It really doesn’t matter what time of year you’re here, but some seasons are a little hotter than others. The summer is very humid, and hot during the day. You’ll probably have to change clothes a few times if you plan on going out and doing stuff in the middle of the day. This sounds a little far-fetched, but you’ll see.
There is an endless amount of working girls here. They are everywhere. This does make it hard to know who is and isn’t, but give it a few days and you’ll acclimate. You can get some pretty good bargains, as the girls outnumber the men, and will really try to close the deal. Another great thing is how nice and enthusiastic the girls are here. Most seem to actually love what they do, and if you know what you’re doing, it shouldn’t be too hard to make the girl genuinely enthusiastic about you, making for a much better experience.
If you want a leg up meeting non-working girls on places like the dating site (see below), you’ll need to do a little homework before. Try to take some time to learn about Colombian culture, and the history of the city as well. Knowing some basic Spanish will get you far as well. Oh, and if you want things to go well in the clubs, you better know how to Salsa dance. You’ll be glad.
As with most other South American cities, you are going to have a hard time bringing a girl back to your hotel, unless you’re staying in a more sketchy location. The same for rented apartments in most cases. The door person may let you bring her in if they can see her ID and be paid a fee, and only if it’s during visiting hours. Be prepared to use a love hotel the majority of the time.
Here are the five best places to meet girls for sex in Cartagena:
Cartagena Girls in Bars
The bar scene in Cartagena is pretty awesome. There are great bars all over the city, in all the different areas. For the most part, I’d recommend staying around the Walled City (see the blue pin on the map below), where a mixture of tourists and guests congregate at night. There are some good places both right outside, and inside, mainly around the clock tower, which is hard to miss.
If you know anything about picking up girls for sex in South America, you know about the social circle aspect. You’ll need to find your way into one if you plan on getting to know a girl a little better, the majority of the time. This is not very hard to accomplish though, just be polite and intentional. Since this is a tourist city, you may not encounter this as much, and will likely run into some non-locals as well, including some American or European girls. This is never a bad thing, and the anonymity of the situation is to your advantage.
Be aware that you’ll be paying a cover charge at most locations, and don’t think you can get by dressed like a bum. If you’re still within the old city gates, Alquimico Bar and Don Fidel’s Salsa Club are a worthy stop. Things are always lively there for sure. Cafe Havana is another great salsa bar, and it’s always packed.
Caponera is right outside the gate, and is frequently packed, with a good mix of locals and tourists. Bazurto Social Club has a younger, more local crowd. If you’re venturing to Bocagrande, Bareke and La Kma Sport Bar & Food right next to it are highly recommended.
Cartagena Girls in Night Clubs
The night clubs in Cartagena are almost always full of working girls, so at least you have some backup options if you can’t pull in other ways. Salsa and Reggaeton are the most prevalent nightclub types here, with a few hip-hop clubs spread around as well.
As with the bars, you’re going to pay to get in most of the time, and your best choices are around the Old City (=Walled City), and Bocagrande.
Elektra is a very popular disco that is well known for having a ton of working girls as well, for good prices too. It’s open till 3am on the weekends. Mister Babilla is one of the most popular clubs in the city, and is always packed during the weekends. You’ll find some sex workers there too, but not as many. Fragma is a little more high-end, if that’s your thing. If your game is strong, you may have some success with the ladies here.
Happy Ending Massage in Cartagena
For whatever reason, sex massages are not that prevalent in Cartagena. Maybe it’s due to the abundance of pro girls elsewhere, who knows. There still are a few, however.
The Rub Spa (photo) has been around for awhile, with prices at around 80,000 COP for 30 minutes of service. Masajes Rocio is a good bet as well. Hotel el Dorado is located in Bocagrande, and runs around 60,000 COP for an actual massage, with a happy ending if you get the right girls. Apple located in San Isidro is worth checking out too, during the day.
Escort Girls in Cartagena
If you have the money, hiring an escort girl for sex can always be a good idea in other Colombian cities, and Cartagena is no different. This is preferable if you don’t really want to get out that day. With an escort, you can have her come to you, but make sure you know the hotel policies first. In most cases, you’ll be okay if it’s before 10:00pm. You’ll need a love hotel if it’s getting late.
Prices run from 150,000 COP to 400,000 COP depending on the girl and the duration. The hottest chicas are going to cost you, mainly because of where you are – everything is more expensive here. Top Escort Babes and Lider Escort are good places to begin your search.
Cartagena Girls on Dating Sites
If you want to meet girls in Cartagena that are both super attractive and fun to hang out with, using a dating site is probably your best option. Seeking Arrangement is a hugely popular dating site both among expats in the country as well as tourists who want to meet up with nice local ladies.
And what’s great about this site (apart from the thousands of sexy women online at any daytime) is that you can arrange your dates conveniently from at home, even before starting your trip, means you don’t waste any time.
Everyone needs to visit Cartagena at least once. Everything about this city is worth loving, and the abundant amount of girls to meet here for romances and sex makes things even better.
If you play your cards right, you’ll have an amazing time doing a few touristy things, while also mixing in plenty of quality time with the vast amounts of hot Colombian girls all over the place, day and night. Sure, it’s more expensive than say, Medellin or Bogota, but you’ll find it to be money well spent.
