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.

  • Palomino is a small town without exactly being nice has achieved an important infrastructure of range hostels and restaurants of varying quality and price. It is located on a site key, equidistant from Santa Marta and Riohacha. It is a good place to stay and from there visit interesting sites such as the Tayrona Park and its beautiful beaches, indigenous settlements such as Tunqueka, or the National Park of los Flamingos. Close by you can make the Tubing by the Palomino River or see the waterfalls of Quebrada Valencia. It is a very visited place especially by young foreign tourists ranging plan of excursions. It has a little more retirees, higher-priced hotels, ideal for a plan for honeymoon, as the Casalina Ecolodge. Hostels featured in Palomino: Dreamers Hostel, Tiki Hut. And a very rich and well run restaurant: Wairah.

  • It is beautiful but not take advantage of this for tourism. I recommend it for people that read like adventure and non-demanding time to eat or rest.

  • Beautiful beach with plenty of aquatic activities. There are not many people. Only the streets are very dirty when there is rain
