Well again I'm biased coz I live here, but 'Quilla has many hidden delights, not obvious to the uninitiated. First and foremost the people, outgoing and gregarious. The weather ideal if you like it hot. Not a huge range of tourist-like activities, but of you let me know, I'll show you the hidden treasures that abound on every corner. And, of course there's the famous Carnaval de Barranquilla in February when the place goes crazy. And finally 'Quilla is the perfect central location to explore the wonderful Carribean coast of Colombia....Colombia es pasion!
