Bocas de Cenizas, Barranquilla

2.7
#2 of 8 in Parks in Barranquilla
Discover the meeting point of the Magdalena River and the Caribbean Sea at Bocas de Cenizas, the site of the country's most significant waterway. An artificial canal built in the 1930s harnesses the water's current and prevents sediment accumulation, while also allowing for ship traffic and supporting the lucrative port activity providing the city with most of its income. Along the river, you'll find plenty of fresh seafood restaurants helping make the city a major stop on most food-oriented itineraries.

  • Go to Bocas de Ceniza maybe is one of those experiences that everyone should do some time as Baranquilleros, national and even because not, international, this work in due course catalog as one of the most important engineering developments of the century spent in Colombia, while certain environmental impacts generated in the area, there is no doubt that it is a unique space of connection with nature, to be witnesses to the meeting of the River with the sea, while the breeze hit your face and your view is attracted by the large emb arcaciones passing sea inside or in direction to our ports, no doubt also reflects the condition we have in colombia, despite being privileged with a strategic location and an incredible biodiversity (there you can see dolphins feeding in) the delta), our communities are still exposed to conditions of poverty and for a long time have been given back, but despite everything, despite not having an infrastructure of chord to the Majesty of the place, and it is inhabited with families of fisherman It is under not the best conditions, their hospitality and desire to succeed, reveal that despite everything people do not lose hope and that he hopes that one day they can be returned to take into account and give you the tools and support they need to go forward , and consolidate mouths of ashes as a true eco-tourism destination.

  • 10 minutes by taxi from the hotel zone of Northern Barranquilla, tour which took us ten thousand pesos, we reach the Flores district, then to the area of rsstaurantes and finally to the site where they exit the craft trains. There pay twenty thousand pesos per person per trip, ida and back on the train. This tour, at a rate of approximately 15 kms/hour, on a perfectly traditional train, is to remember, something uncomfortable everything but the views are fantastic. Finally, and after half an hour on the train, we arrived at the site where ends the carriages and begins the final stage on foot along a flat trail, sometimes difocil transit by the amount and type of large stone that there is but without any problems (we are adults over the age of 7 5 years), after about 20 mtos, arrive at the final site where is the mouth of the River to the sea. Beautiful views, waves strong breeze agraable, photos and return to account: if possible go with closed shoe, hopefully tennis as stones do not always leave disturb feet. Carry some 600 cc of water auncuando at the beginning of the journey in the train offered for sale. Sunscreen as the Sun is merciless, hopefully hat or hat and long sleeves. Tour total walk back and forth, approx one hour without worries. Tour total with the train, back and forth, approx 2 to two and half hours. It is good to evacuate bladder before going there because there are no bathrooms suitable for this purpose. They offer food from restaurants with fish fresh thing that we did not but the truth seems that the offer is great as that demand by it that I think may be a good choice. They say that the prices are very cheap. If I have the choice, again to mouths of ash
