As Colombia’s fourth-largest city, located in between the tourist hot spots
of Cartagena and Santa Marta, Barranquilla often gets overlooked by
visitors. Thought of as an unattractive port town, this gem on the
Caribbean coast is home to incredible people and some beautiful sights.
Here’s our guide of the best things to do and see in this charming city.
Barranquilla is known as the Golden Gate of Colombia because in the late
nineteenth century it served as an entrance into the country for passengers
and goods. Barranquilla was also a pioneer of commercial aviation in 1919.
The capital of the Atlántico is distinguished for the Republican-era
architecture about El Prado, as well as its museums, beaches, and
festivals. In the surrounding area, tourists can visit creeks, marshes, and
other natural attractions.
Things to Do in Barranquilla
Castillo de Salgar
Located outside of the city, next to the sea in Salgar, the Castillo de
Salgar is a beautifully restored old castle. It serves as a private events
function space but it’s also home to a fantastic restaurant, serving up a
mix of cuisines. Escape the city and head to the castle to soak up its
beauty at sunset, when its yellow walls reflect the setting sun. A perfect
spot to come and avoid the urban crowds, eat a slap-up meal and enjoy some
Museo del Caribe
The best museum in Barranquilla by far, come to El Museo del Caribe for a
fascinating insight into the history and culture of Colombia’s Caribbean
coast, quite unlike that of any other part of the country. Providing a fun
and interactive experience, this museum is split into different levels and
rooms, each displaying different elements of the culture. A special area
dedicated to writer Gabriel Garcia Marquez contains an exposition of his
best work and is a great place to sit down and read one of his short
stories or novels.
To get a real feel for Barranquilla there’s no better way than heading down
to the Paseo Bolivar in the center of the city. Chaotic, busy and filled
with people, this what Barranquilla is all about. Be careful with your
belongings and don’t hang around after dark, but don’t be afraid to check
out the market and various affordable goods on offer. The Paseo Bolivar is
also a great place to try a tasty area conqueso or drink coconut water
straight out the shell – you can’t get more Barranquillero than this.
