The Malecon is one of my favorite spots. Walking along the waterfront with all the vendors and fun activities and music is one of the highlights for sure.

Colombia has a law that you are permitted to drink on the streets. So you can get yummy fresh alcoholic drinks and enjoy walking around with them.

The center looks like a town in Europe. Switzerland, Austria whatever place you like to think, it’s just precious.

Take a ride in a mini-Chiva. This is their version of a tuk tuk, Colombian style. In other words, it’s their taxi service. You can take a taxi as well, but these by far more fun.
