  • The stadium has inputs and outputs for different sites, they are ramps, not stairs, making easier both the output and the input. The heat is brutal, that Yes. In the West stands, North and South there are ceiling, so get rid Sun, not in oriental, especially in the lower part. The heat is terrible, coupled with the humidity. Each site has a armchair, but when there are matches of great capacity, as when playing selection Colombia, you sit where you can. It has outputs for main avenues, although when there are many people is difficult to get public transport or taxis. It is quite comfortable to watch football. The perspective from North and East is pretty good. I am from South and West it is also.

  • It is the 5th time I in the year, all due to see matches of round for Russia 2018. On this occasion the courts was not in good condition and Colombia did not show their best football. By @falcao and his return to the selection. The atmosphere was unbeatable, Barranquilla is and must always be the headquarters of the selection here soccer lives different and spread the joy of us born in the coast to whatever.

  • It is a unique experience seeing the Colombia selection playing, the atmosphere is incredible. The problem arises at the time of the output by the complex which is to find a taxi, in addition to having so many people and so many cars, generated much congestion that slows the transfer to the different points of the city about 1 hour more than normal.
