Casa Beto Murgas

Reviewed By EAltahona - Bogota, Colombia

Its the best way to get to learn the local historical point of view of the culture. Affordable, and nice.
Its important to mention that the culture of this place is unique, because of the music. Should go.

Plaza Alfonso Lopez Valledupar

Reviewed By Barkervillegirl - South America

I was staying at a hotel nearby, so I walked over around midday. The spot is very pretty, surrounded by simple but attractive buildings. I loved the statue! Only be forewarned, there is little shelter within the plaza and you will get sunburned if you linger too long. Late afternoon is probably the best. There isn't a lot to do there, so unless there is a special event, there isn't much reason to stick around. I sat for a bit in an ice cream place there, trying to escape the sun.
Definitely worth checking out, but pick your timing carefully.

Balneario Hurtado

Reviewed By Snapopoulos - Thessaloniki, Greece

Spending the afternoon on a table, drinking a cold beer, eating some food and having a few swims in the Rio Guatapuri is an excellent way of escaping the midday heat.
True, there's Vallenato blaring out of several speakers and there are quite a few annoying venders, selling souvenirs, massages, snacks and whatnot, but it is truly a local experience and pretty fun to dive off the rocks in the cool river. I thoroughly enjoyed it, although I can imagine it gets super busy on holidays and weekends.

Well worth the visit. Open to visitors. Right in the center of town. Yes, it is a safe neighborhood. Other sights are close by.

Atanquez

Reviewed By CATS22London - LONDON

There is nothing here just 3 shops selling bags, no indigeous houses or people wearing local indigeous clothing you need to go much higher up to the real indigeous villages - not worth the trip here

Parque De Las Monedas

Reviewed By Jorge S - Barcelona, Spain

Más que conocer el parque lo fundamental es conocer los pueblos que están en la zona, todos a escasos kilómetros. Llegar a patillal es enriquecerse con la cultura de los grandes compositores de la música vallenata, aparte que el paisaje es muy bonito. Ese parque es el principal del pueblo.

Guatapuri Plaza

Reviewed By Barkervillegirl - South America

Although I wouldn't call myself a mall person, I find them a very good place to escape the heat. I came here on a sunny afternoon, trying to avoid a sunburn and enjoy a little air conditioning. As far as malls go, this one is pretty average. There is a huge Exito, a movie theater, a Juan Valdez for the coffee lovers, and many shops to buy clothes and accessories. I took a look through Panamerica (one of my favourite stores in Colombia) and found a cheap camera bag that I hadn't been able to find elsewhere. I also went to a movie.

Centro de Memoria El Cuartico

Reviewed By meneis - Bogotá

Es un pequeño pero hermoso sitio donde una familia decidió recoger su pasado (utensilios, fotos, recuerdos, vivencias) para compartir su pasado con los visitantes del lugar. Atendido por las hermanas Jimenez Zuleta que viven al lado, esta casa fue donde nacieron y vivieron sus primeros años, luego su padre construyó otra casa más moderna al lado permitiéndoles, hace unos pocos años, crear este espacio amoroso e histórico que comparten con los visitantes.
