(4/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Tourists and locals alike escape the blazing heat with a refreshing swim at Balneario Hurtado--or with a cold drink along the banks. A truly mixed area drawing all walks of life, the riverside swimming spot generates a vibrant, friendly atmosphere as the speaker systems blast out local music. A number of stalls operate along the banks selling souvenirs and snacks, and a couple restaurants serve up simple meals. The rocks above the river are a good height for diving off--try it if you're feeling adventurous.

  • It is one of the fulfilled dreams, is a magical place, where you can enjoy the company of your family during an evening of music, food, Sun and cold beers, and night is to share a romantic night under the light of the Moon and stars, sat listening to the calming and beautiful sound of the water crashing with the guatapurí River stones. as had warned me, the one who knows the guatapurí, doesn't want to return, and precisely... I have to go back.

  • Bañarse en el Guatapuri inspiración de tantos cantores sueño hecho realidad
  • Absolutely filthy dirty, hey lets just leave the dirty diapers/trash bags/food leftovers/plastic bottles anywhere.
  • Lot of stone and the water hits very hard, people are very dirty with the River, still so pretty, although there are better rivers and beaches near valledupar

  • Delicious whereabouts, the peace of nature with the whistling of the birds and the dulse sound of water, cold water coming down from the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, time stops and the thought is transported

  • In the resort there are good trails for walking, there are enabled parking, food stands (and drinks) and river is obviously the main attraction to cool off and bathe. The area is quite busy and the main bridge and the monument of siren are icons of the place.
