#2 of 23 in Sightseeing in Barranquilla
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • ideal to make different kinds of sport or exercise! It is diversity both genders, ideologies and lifestyles. The people who skate, along with the guys who dance, are the center of attraction. You'll be surprised when you see the lights of the Cathedral lit at night! If you're lucky, you'll see on source! In love.

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.
