Malecon Leon Caridi, Barranquilla

3.5
#3 of 24 in Sightseeing in Barranquilla
Landmark Tourist Spot
Take a leisurely stroll along the river at Malecon Leon Caridi, a pier stretching 700 m (2,297 ft). Walking along the shore you'll see plenty of benches, so bring a book along in case you want to take a short break. Bird enthusiasts should bring a camera for the pelicans and other water birds in high numbers along the boardwalk. As the area is still under development, touristic services and restaurants are not aplenty here so pack some lunch.

Where to stay in Barranquilla

Equipped to host the largest festival in the country, Barranquilla has a good set of accommodations catering to a range of tastes, budgets, and interests. Either side of Carrera 46, find pristine chain hotels and smaller independent options with extensive amenities, such as rooftop swimming pools, modern spas, and popular restaurants. Look to the more residential areas for budget-friendly guesthouses, and consider booking a rental apartment if planning on a longer stay. Economical options cluster around Paseo Bolivar, but note the area can be rather sketchy. Be sure to reserve well in advance if planning on visiting for Mardi Gras in February.

  • Beauty full place to go bird watching and spend an evening till the sun goes down very windy a good chance for the tropical high temperatures.
  • Its a nice place for a walk, would be good to have some places for eating something

  • This process end adjustments and therefore is only 3 star, hopefully urban beautification works to finish to give the final grade. For now you can go to visit, enjoy the breeze and the view of the River in a short but nice walk, not be as it will be night, hopefully has policing because its surroundings are very solitary. I love the journey of the River with the main cities and the mileage that is demarcated on the floor. It is worth walking through there.
