  • Being the River Magdalena one of the more plentiful in Colombia, its mouth on the shores of the Caribbean Sea in the city of Barranquilla, is one of the natural eventps which we must not lose. The unique color of the waters and the texture and color of the sand of the beaches of Salgar and Puerto Colombia should it is precisely to this powerful encounter between two great forces and the minerals from the waters of the River, they are accumulated in its path from its source high in the mountains of the cordillera de los Andes. In addition, in the area of Las Flores there are many restaurants and bus stops where you can enjoy a typical dish Barranquilla, while enjoying the Majesty of waters.

  • The confluence of the River with the sea will enjoy travelers who love nature. Not worth to go bright and expensive clothes.
