Overlooking Rodadero Beach with high-rises and shoreline
Rodadero Beach

Rodadero beach is about one hour and thirty minutes east from Barranquilla and is a good day trip for a date. I do not recommend swimming in any of the urban beaches of Colombia as there are no pollution controls. The beaches in Santa Marta are cleaner than Cartagena.
