    Barranquilla isn't the most touristy city so when looking for something to do it's a bit tough. This is a no brainer. B/quilla has 2 large malls. This is one of them, the other is less than 5 km away. Both are worth visiting. Tons to do, shop, eat, sit, play etc. All the food is great, the shopping is well within what you'd expect for a large shopping mall. It's safe and clean. GREAT place to spend a few hours!

    This is a very small zoo but it is clean and with plenty of helpful staff. Bathrooms are clean and there are some vendors with basic food items.

    We visited this church for a friend's wedding and we were fascinated by it.
    It's a little white church which is very popular with brides in Barranquilla. The altar features beautiful statues of Mary and the crucifix is pretty too.
    It has nice wooden pews and old fashioned confessionals. It doesn't have A/C but most churches in Colombia don't have it either.
    Parking can be problematic as it is limited and the church is located in a very busy area in the city.
    Definitely worth a visit if you are in town.

    We walked there on a Friday afternoon. The place was getting busy and it was nice to see locals hanging out. Several food stalls that serves bread and other local food (no restaurant, just food stalls). The views over the river were nice (many birds), but the sewage smell at many places was somewhat a turn off. Nevertheless, a great place to have a stroll for a few hours.

    The massive structure was wonderfully cool due to the unique roof structure.
    The stain glass windows were beautiful

    Still under construction. Comfortable. Good facility. Good conference rooms. Once finished, I believe it will be an excellent convention centre for business and academic meetings in Colombia. It is distant from the exciting sites of Barranquilla and the best hotels.

    It is close to the Magdalena river and offers nice views of it.

    The Barranquilla Carnaval is one of the largest in Latin America. It is a sea of humanity but very festive and fun. We watched the crowning of the queen and the parade. It was a great time but you need to be very cautious with your personal belongings in such a large crowd.

    Safety, unfortunately is a concern in Colombia, but this monument area is very safe even at night, which is very refreshing, many youth and families were visiting.

    Interesting to see where the Magdalena River meets the ocean. Narrow (we drove ourselves and had to make way for the human powered/pushed rail cart).

    We were looking for a spot to visit on our last day in Barranquilla before catching our flight home. I had seen pictures of the park, but none of the locations matched where we actually went. Herwin was a great guide and it was a great informative trip. Tour was about 1 1/2 hours. Great little day trip.
