It's a large old house about 30 minutes from Barranquilla. Sadly, I found no information, in English or Spanish regarding the history if the property. The structure is right on the water and offers great views and the wind was a relief from the heat....More

Great views of the Atlantic, nice drinks at the museum, facilities a little lacking. But a great place to visit, great photos to be taken and it's free too... BUT: Don't walk alone or even in a pair (unless you are both pretty tough looking!)...More

We wanted to eat sea fish. The menu did not have a whole fried fish, so we asked them for it and they said right away that they had whole fried red snapper. It was very good, with salad, fried banana (patacon) and salad.

We were going to Puerto Velero and stopped to see the castle. Nice views of the ocean and its cliffs.

The views from the point and from the second floor are great, take a camera. Weekends have music and the restaurant is open. It is closed during the week.

I was really expecting a castle like the ones in Cartagena. The castillo is a very big and old house with a stunning view and lots and lots of wind. The visit is worth it. It's free and it's got a nice view, but that's...More
