(2.7/5 based on 220+ 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.

  • We were in a short space of time, a place close to the city, nice, with a view that is worth knowing - even though we visit day, think that see the sunset there should be a very good show - there is good supply of meals and a restaurant that is looked pretty good (again, time of visit optima should be the afternoon) in which serve very good blends of fruit juices.

  • We must get to the end, please wear tennis shoes, not wear sandals, it's a very rocky place, unfortunately in some parts of the road there is some waste and neglect of the place, but still worth going to this unique place where joins el.mar and el.rio

  • Gives sadness like Barranquilla do not take this opportunity to increase the flow of tourists visiting mouths of ashes, in short: where no parking the vehicles, the area is unsafe, transportation to the site is very poor and unsafe, there are no restaurants that you can, there are no tourist guides, no trips on boats to either side.
