Welcome to Barranquilla

While Barranquilla attracts big crowds for Mardi Gras, at any other time of the year there are very few visitors, and most travelers skip the town altogether (there's very little to see compared with elsewhere on the coast). If you do come, you'll find a city proud to be the home of costeño (people from the coast) culture, and one with plenty of excellent restaurants, lively bars and a smattering of decent museums.
