  • I had many expectations to be able to walk and feel safe on the malecon, but it did not. It is preferable to go in Group and it is best to take it in the middle of the fairs and festivals of the month of July. The best restaurants in the area. Excellent choice for the night and to explore dining options.

Where to stay in Cucuta

A city on the border with Venezuela, Cucuta represents a major regional transport, commercial, and tourist hub, as reflected in its abundance of accommodations. Since many visits to Cucuta are transitory in nature, with business people crossing the border in either direction, places to stay mostly cluster to the south of Highway 70. Still, as a town boasting plenty of attractions in its own right, Cucuta has come to offer a wider range of choices than business hotels and motels; choose from a solid selection of boutique accommodations, rental apartments, and budget-friendly guesthouses.
