#Outdoor Activity, #Must See
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. Plan to visit Palomino during your Riohacha vacation using our convenient Riohacha trip planning tool .

  • Good place to meet, have different activities to perform: Tubin in del rio, typical of palomino. Palomino beaches are very pitted, always have red flag, is not recommended to get, but they can know where the sea meets the River at the end of the beach, a very nice place. You can go to the bird sanctuary and flamingos on the shrimp, only beach out to the main highway and take a bus that passes, they should charge between $5mil and $8mil by people. Shrimp tour is worth $25 per person, you get there and take a motorcycle taxi, which is worth $3mil and is required since it is far from the highway. Etc.

  • By bus from Santa Marta and Riohacha, for 1.5 hours, you find a small town with many hotels and hostels, good nightlife. The river is very clean and its mouth at the sea allows activity as the tubing. From the bridge on the main road are the picos Nevados mas altos de Colombia. Very friendly locals. The Sea (February) very crushed. Big waves, entertaining, but with caution.

  • A place where you can truly relax and do something different, quiet and eco-friendly tourism. If you are looking to get to the sea, look for another place, since the sea is very chopped and almost always has red flag. There are a variety of restaurants selling typical food of the region and very close to the beach. If you go to palomino don't do tubing, for which we are lovers of nature and the peace which conveys, is a tour that you can't miss.
