  • Unique place to visit in the city, its architecture is inspiring, full of joy and much love

  • The atmosphere inside the stadium is very picturesque and cheerful. The Court is the best in South America. Too bad access roads and parking are very poor and sometimes dangerous, especially when they are night matches of the local tournament. Be careful with whom he will and returns. I recommend transmetro! Local mass transportation service

  • Have nearby parking rates, restaurants, etc; they make the visit to the stadium to attend a great event as a party of the selection Colombia's soccer more enjoyable. Barranquillero environment is unique and more in the surrounding area.

  • A lot of great moments in this stadium. If you can catch a local soccer match (Junior Barranquilla) do it!
  • The home of the Colombian soccer team. There you enjoy soccer and happiness of Colombian people
  • A bucket list thing to do to go experience a South American football game. Atmosphere was electric!! I've never seen fans sing all match long.
  • It's a great place to feel the Colombian football. It is the national team stadium and also the place where Junior de Barranquilla play locally. However, It is quite far from the city and the transportation is poor. If you go there, stay aware of the thieves and enjoy the football!!
  • Sport events entrance is an issue. I recommend to arrive very early to avoid delays and issues in the queue and police.
