Miami International Airport (MIA) is located just off I-95 and is accessible from Route 826 and Route 836. If you prefer public transportation, you can also reach it through either the Metrobus or Metrorail systems.
When flying from MIA to Ernesto Cortissoz International Airport (BAQ), nonstop flight duration is just under three hours. BAQ is located just south of Barranquilla, and you can take I-25 the rest of the way into the city.
If you travel to Barranquilla during the final four days before Lent, be sure to attend the carnival, a celebration full of dancers, revelers, parades and live music. Barranquilla's carnival is the second largest in the world, even larger than Mardi Gras in New Orleans. An international arts festival also occurs at the end of January.
Year-round, you can enjoy the beaches at Puerto Colombia, the Museum of the Caribbean and the Romantic Museum, which has artifacts from Simon Bolivar and Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
Stick close to the neighborhood of El Prado if enjoying the nightlife, and play it safe and hail a taxi rather than walking back to your hotel after a long night of partying. Temperatures hover around 90 degrees all year round, so pack accordingly.
