Cartagena, Colombia: The still relatively undiscovered city of Cartagena is heaven for music lovers. Take in meringue, salsa, or Cuban, and listen to guitarists who stroll the streets or dance to techno in the clubs. Musicians will follow you down the streets, and it’s not unheard of to take one back to your villa to entertain while you and you friends party until dawn.
