Located between Barranquilla and beautiful Cartagena de Indias. This ancient castle was converted into a nice place to enjoy a good meal and the hospitality of the locals. Magnificent view of the Caribbean Sea.

This is one of my favorite places near Barranquilla to watch the sunset. It's great for enjoying a picnic with friends.

To say the place is bad would be a lie, however if you're used to traveling and seeing truly beautiful places, you might be a bit disappointed. It's not shocking that this is among the top 5 things to do in Barranquilla, but that's because there really isn't much to do in this city. If you are living in Colombia... More

If you're willing to pass from a crazy noises of the dayli commute, away from everything, this is the place to go. With a history to tell everyone, the splash of the sea waves and the breeze of the Caribbean Sea, I will say it's a great place to visit and relax for a little while.

Amazing views of the Atlantic. We took beautiful pictures. Had a drink at the restaurant. They have the best coconut lemonade. I would recommend this trip. You won't be there more than an hour.

The best spot to see sunset...sitting on the edge of the cliff and take some cool pictures.. You will see birds flying back to their habitats just before the sunset too...it is quite a scene

Barranquilla is not a touristic city by any means, it is a industrial, financial, business city, if you are looking for a place to vacation in Colombia undoubtedly the answer is Cartagena, Barranquilla truly does not offer something for travelers. About the place: It is a small (when i say small its really small, smaller than a baseball field). The... More

It's a nice place, you can appreciate a great view of the sea, for taking photos and getting a good rest time. I visited in a special occasion, and the owner corporation prepare the restaurant with music. In the special occasion, the place got to be crowded, many people visit it, so you must visit it with time if you... More

We visited with my friends and it was a great time, the view from the cliff is stunning. Go spend an afternoon, share some drinks and watch the sunset.
