(130+ reviews on the web)
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
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. Make Balneario Hurtado part of your personalized Valledupar itinerary using our Valledupar itinerary maker.

  • Traditional tourist site in Valledupar, in addition to the threads of the Guatapurí River waters are other attractions such as the Park of the ice cream, the roundabout of the minstrels, the banking of the chieftain and the Vallenata siren among others.
