Palomino, Riohacha

(4.4/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Increasingly popular with local and foreign tourists, Palomino boasts pristine white beaches and crystal clear waters. Once you arrive, you'll find plenty of activities available: join a guided hike up toward the nearby mountains or simply enjoy the calm sea breeze with a book. If you choose to swim, beware of the strong currents. Local bus transport to the area takes you past memorable scenery such as vast banana plantations and traditional local spots. Be sure to pack mosquito repellant as the insects are a constant problem in the area.

  • Palomino is undoubtedly a great destiny, that Yes, if you are aware what is, as there is no good and many alternative hotels, at least not close to the beach, much hostel hammocks (hammock), cabins and dormitories, although other options that are less abundant are achieved. To the part of the Sierra, there are alternatives from best hotels. The plan in Palomino is more party and Bohemian break and it is designed for the backpack plan, so if that is thought, it is an excellent destination. It transport (if not is carries vehicle) is in moto (motorbike Taxi) and what if is missed is the Tubing by the river Palomino. To conclude, reiterate, is necessary know to is goes to palomino, if the plan is rest, amenities and tranquility is best search another destination, if by the contrary, is nature, walks, beach, something of jungle, River, party and fun, certainly, is a great destination for enjoy and know people of all the nationalities.

  • It is a magical place where the River, the sea is mixed and the imposing sierra nevada of Santa Marta which makes it unique in the world. The atmosphere is good, the lodgings are suitable.
