Plaza de la Paz, Barranquilla

Built to accommodate the crowds that would await Pope John Paul II, Plaza de la Paz sits strategically in the center of the city. Today it hosts numerous events of importance, including presidential speeches, cultural performances, and protests. Combine a stroll through the square with a visit to the cathedral visible in the background. If you're in the mood for some retail therapy, head to the shopping center right across from the square. To plan Barranquilla vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

    Located in one of the sites with more history of the city. From its inception this Cathedral Mary Queen of modern style. In this first space, its beginning, is the area's performances, wide and easy access. Later, at a second level is the green area with trees that provide shade and quiet trails. There runs a space - gallery of the Ministry of culture of the district, and at the end is a CAI, Centre of attention of the police. It has underground parking. Among the plans is its expansion with more green areas. It is a very safe space, used by young people to skating, jogging, bicycle handle, raise kites. There are shopping malls, housing projects, schools and city Transmetro service station around its central magnificent.

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.
