Let's go there now.

1-No, we will go there later.

2-No, we will go there after.
3-No, we will go there afterward.

Which of the sentences 1-3 are acceptable in this context?

Gratefully,
Navi.

Only number 1 works, with "later" instead of "now". However, the most natural response would be "No, let's go there later".
