  • 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

  • It is the central park of Cúcuta. It is a good choice for walking and visiting. It is not a very large park but taking the Cathedral in front is a good choice.

  • Santander square shows the character of the people of Cúcuta is spacious and pleasant. It is surrounded of institutional and governmental buildings. It is a beautiful building of the 1950s where the Mayor's Office also operates the magnificent Cathedral of San José, as well as very representative buildings of the 1960s and 1970s financial and commercial. In one of its corners is a wonderful work of art of Ramírez Villamizar, an important artist nortesantandereano. There are some trees, and have planted new that process will improve the quality of this public space. Security is good.

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.
