Bocas de Cenizas, Barranquilla

(2.8/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • It is a very nice place to visit. beautiful sky and birds. I was on the train and I liked the tour. see the beauty of the river and from the sea. Too bad all waste plastics that are to the banks and the poverty of all these shacks are built along the way.
