Barranquilla is definitely most famous for its colorful Carnaval celebrations. But while you’re in town for the party, why not check out some of the year-round sights of the city? Personally, I would love to venture out and take the train in Bocas de Ceniza, the stunning point where the Magdalena River meets the Caribbean Sea. Overall, while Barranquilla isn’t the first place people think of when thinking about Colombia, it definitely seems worth a visit if you have time.
