Balneario Hurtado, Valledupar

4.0
#4 of 16 in Things to do in Valledupar
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. To visit Balneario Hurtado on your trip to Valledupar, use our Valledupar holiday planning tool .

  • It is a very nice day walk, River is clean and it is worth going. The annoying thing for me is that there is much noise each business places higher than the previous music and the charm of nature is a little lost. Also much peddler, but that is now by all due to exodus Venezuelan Valledupar.

  • The truth is that if does not pass by the Guatapurí not spent by valledupar, is beautiful to see these waters, people and look a bit vallenato folklore and our history. It is a slice of heaven. I highly recommend it.
