Last part of my travel was in Baranquilla, famous city for it’s singer Shakira. The city itself is not a tourist attraction and it will be difficult to find a good hostel, so go to Howard Johnson hotel, it’s more expensive but for a couple of days it’s a great value. And avoid the Barahona 72, it’s really bad, noisy and not worth the prize of it.
Baranquilla doesn’t really have a one street to go out and party, and the information you will find either in Lonely Planet or Petit Fute, are not up to date anymore at all. So your best move would be to get to know someone there to show you and guide you to different places. I spent a couple of nights there and I have to say you may end up in surprisingly great ambiance such as Coco beach, on a rooftop. Nice Coktail, nice set, great music, what else would you dream of ?
