  • A few days ago I was with family friends enjoying a ride on chiva and one of the points where it passes this transport is the Santander park, although it is a beautiful journey, the chiva music is too estrenduosa, when we pass by the Park reflex the Venezuelan situation, generated me a sadness and impotence unimaginable, families sleeping on the floor or on park benches. Even in this poverty and hopelessness many of the visitors who were still awake danced to the beat of the goat and bid farewell with joy, an experience that allows us to reflect and think about how we can help.

  • Great plaza that I served as a reference to guide me to different places of the city, it may see a large number of pigeons that adorn the square, very close to the Cathedral of Cúcuta. What seemed sad and regrettable is a group of people who are are dedicated to prostitution and buhoneria from Venezuela in the light of the crisis facing the neighboring country. The areas of gardening are abandoned. I do not recommend to visit the square at night.

  • The Santander park known as Park pigeons for the large number of these birds that live there; is the central park of the city of cucuta where the Cathedral san jose and also several government buildings during the holiday decorate you very nice; It should be noted that the abundance of hawkers around the Central magnificent spoil a little landscape and the tranquility of the Park

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.
