Discover the city of Carnival and tour its main tourist attractions with this Barranquilla Day Trip from Cartagena. You'll visit the Golden Gate of Colombia!
Barranquilla Day Trip
At 8 am we'll pick you up at your hotel in Cartagena de Indias and set off for one of the most important cities in Colombia, Barranquilla. Shakira's hometown is known as the Golden Gate. During the day we'll reveal the reason why!
After a little more than two hours, we'll arrive at the El Prado neighbourhood, the first stop on our visit to Barranquilla. Did you know that this location was the first planned urban centre in Colombia? As we tour it, we'll talk about the main historical events of the city.
We'll also explore the Founders' Park and arrive at the Casa del Carnaval, where we'll talk about Barranquilla's most festive tradition. It's quite an event! In the historical centre of the city, we'll visit the Metropolitan Cathedral and walk next to the Amira de la Rosa Theatre and the Antigua Aduana Cultural Complex.
At the Montoya station, we'll talk about the industrialization of Barranquilla and review its most modern side. You'll also have the opportunity to visit the Museo del Caribe and the Museo del Carnaval, two of the most interesting exhibitions in the city. Afterwards, we'll stop in front of the Shark Fin monument and discover who it is dedicated to.
The last part of the excursion will be dedicated to walking along the Malecón and enjoying the peace that it offers. This will be the perfect setting to taste a delicious meal, the chuzo desgranado - you'll love it!
Finally, we'll head back to Cartagena de Indias, arriving at your hotel at 8 pm.
This is a private tour organized for you and your partner, friends or family.
