Tropical and humid. Average temperatures are in the 80s F and 90s F during the day. The evenings are more comfortable with a nice breeze. Air-conditioning in your apartment or hotel is a must.
You will most likely arrive in Ernesto Cortissoz International Airport, located to the south of the city. The airport is small. Clearing customs is an easy process. There are several flights a day from Bogota, which is a 1.5 hour flight. The most common international entry is from Panama City with flights, served by Copa Airlines.
Taxis are readily available at the airport. Travel time to your pad in Barranquilla will take roughly 30-45 minutes and will cost 30 Mil. Uber is technically illegal and is not available from the airport. However, Uber is available for transit to the airport and within the city. Uber prices are slightly less than Yellow Taxis. Drivers will ask you to sit in the front seat as they have been outlawed in Barranquilla.
Barranquilla is very spread out and in combination with the heat, it is not a walkable city. My biggest gripe about the city is its logistics. You will need to take a taxi to the beach, bars, and clubs. I highly recommend that you stay close to one of the big malls. I recommend the neighborhood of Buenavista. Ideally, you should secure a hotel or apartment near Buenavista or Viva malls. The malls are spacious and have gyms and a variety of places to eat. I did not have enough time to visit, but the following malls are also recommend: Country Villa and Portal del Prado.
I usually advise to stay in apartments in Colombia. However, most hotels have guest friendly policies and are reasonable priced.
Unfortunately, the beaches are ugly and dull. Your best bet is to find a hotel with a good pool and invite girls to spend the afternoon there.
The following hotels are guest friendly and well located:
English is not widely spoken. However, the English levels are higher than I expected. Conversational Spanish will go a long way in your ability to navigate the city and communicate with the women of Barranquilla.
I recommend the Pimsleur Learning Program for learning Spanish.
Additionally, italki is also a great resource to setup one-on-one courses with professional and certified teachers.
The women in Barranquilla are generally darker than their counterparts in Bogota. However, I was pleasantly surprised to see a range in the diversity of skin tone. There are more lighter-skinned women than I had anticipated. Plastic surgery is not as ubiquitous as in Medellin or Bogota. Barranquilla is a perfect destination for Latinas with natural bodies. The girls have natural, full butts which are some of the best in Latin America.

Your foreigner status will be higher in Barranquilla than the big 3: Bogota, Medellin and Cali. There are very few Gringos in the city. Tinder is a great way to meet girls. I had several matches but unfortunately, did not have enough time to capitalize. I also had good success with ColombianCupid which I can also recommend.
Hit the malls for Daygame to meet quality women of Barranquilla. . I received a lot of eye contact during the day. Girls are generally friendly and quite approachable in malls. Street game is out due to the heat.
Overall, sex happens quickly in Barranquilla which makes it a solid place for a short stay as opposed to Medellin which requires more time to mix it up with quality girls.
Tiger form RFV sums up nightlife in Barranquilla as follows:
“Night Game: I thought night game sucked in Barranquilla. If you love to party, then Barranquilla isn’t your place. You can still have a good night out and meet some chicks, but day game and online game are much more fruitful. Here’s a quick rundown of clubs:
Discolo: By far the best night game venue in Barranquilla. The issue is it’s hit or miss. If Discolo is filled, then it’ll be a lot of fun. I just couldn’t figure out what nights it would be filled.
Frogg: Is the next best night game spot in Barranquilla. It’s decent sized and plays decent music. The issue is you’ll struggle to find girls without men. I’d only go here on a weekend night when Discolo is dead or you have a chick with you.
Kapitol: Smaller venue that I’m torn on. It’s a lot of groups (common in Colombia), but the party really gets going in here after midnight. Hit or miss, but you could get lucky and come away with a really hot chick from Kapitol.
Trucupey: I would never go here again – unless you’re already with a girl. I didn’t see many hot chicks and tables cover the dance floor. More groups of 5-8 people than I’ve ever seen in a club before.”
This was my first trip to the Coast of Colombia. The women in Barranquilla left a positive impression on me. They were more attractive and sweeter than I had anticipated.
The city is hot and boring with ugly beaches. Santa Marta and Cartegena are easily accessible for better beaches. The logistics are too spread out and not walkable. These conditions rule out a long-term stay for my tastes. However, Barranquilla is a great destination for a short stay mainly due to the cute, friendly girls. Online dating and Daygame in Barranquilla with girls in a city with little foreigner presence makes Barranquilla and underrated destination in Colombia.
