Travel to the Colonie on Your Trip to Barranquilla
When it comes to travel destinations, few have the charm and beauty of Colombia’s beautiful Andean highlands more than the beautiful little town of Barranquilla. Situated on the eastern side of Colombia’s Guarija province, this once-hidden gem of the Andean mountain range is fast becoming one of the must-visit places on every trip to Colombia. With spectacular scenery and a warm, inviting, and friendly local culture, the little town of Barranquilla has earned a reputation as a top-notch travel destination. And with Colombia is a country with an amazing variety of travel opportunities, there are many different ways that travelers can enjoy a trip to Barranquilla.
One of the easiest trips to Barranquilla would be on Colombian Airlines’ Bogota Flight. Bogota is one of Colombia’s busiest airlines and offers flights throughout the country on a regular basis. There are frequent scheduled flights from Bogota to all parts of Colombia including the little burg of Barranquilla. From June through October, the Bogota Flight takes off from Colombia’s largest city, Colombia’s second largest, Quito, to Bogota. Traveling on the Bogota Flight is extremely convenient, especially for short trips, as it is often possible to catch a connection in Quito.
Of course, if you do not have days to spare during your trip to Barranquilla, you might consider taking a different route. Many travelers fly to Colombia’s primary airport, Antigua, and then fly into the small city of Barranquilla. By traveling via domestic and international flights, you will have access to the airport and all the conveniences of a modern hotel such as a restaurant or bar. If you prefer to stay away from the madding crowd, you can choose to fly to a resort destination like Colombia’s beautiful Andean region or the Caribbean Coast.
One of the best ways to get around South America is by car, as there are many routes that connect key cities. However, if you have never driven a car in another country, you may want to use your domestic flight to get around Colombia. With an experienced driver at your side, driving along the Colombia-Bogota highway (known as the Guarijaamento enlace) is an experience every driver will enjoy. Starting from the town of Popayan, the highway passes through several tropical jungle areas. In Barranquilla, the highway continues to pass through the heart of Colombia’s cocaine trade and stops at the port of Colon, where there is an enormous dry dock where yachts can be docked for repair and maintenance. Once you arrive at the first airport of Colombia, you can either stay at a marina on the Pacific Ocean or travel south to reach Bogota.
A short bus or taxi ride will take you to the central plaza where the grand avenue crosses. It also stops by the old city of Barranquilla, where you can find many cafes and restaurants, and historic centers such as the Cathedral and Congress. From here, you can continue on foot through the city, which is full of cobblestone streets. When you arrive in Cortissoz International Airport, there is a train waiting outside that will take you directly to your hotel. If you book your flights for Barranquilla at the beginning of May, you can take advantage of special discounts that include discounts on airport transfers and breakfast.
Traveling from the United States to the beautiful Caribbean coast of Colombia via road is not easy on a budget. Luckily, travel to this part of the world has become easier over the last decade or so thanks to improved infrastructure and transportation options. When traveling throughout the country, it is recommended that you rent a car, especially if you plan on visiting the rural areas between cities. This allows you to get around the country in comfort while giving you more time to explore the area. If you choose to use public transportation, there are buses operating from major cities to the rural south. As long as you allow extra time to commute, you can easily reach the hub of Colombia’s South American tourism.
