Welcome to Barranquilla Colombia! Enjoy viewing the Barranquilla Prepagos!
- Barranquilla is Colombia's fourth largest city and has many Barranquillan Prepagos for you!
Barranquilla is located on Colombia's Caribbean Coast and is located between Cartagena to the West and Santa Marta to the East.
Barranquilla is centrally located and with an international airport and makes a great base for your Colombian adventure!
Founded as a port city on the Magdalena River and the Pacific Ocean, Barranquilla has a long and historic past.
Barranquilla was the first port in Colombia and is home to the first Airport and Airline in South America.
As a port city, Barranquilla has a more diverse population then many other Colombian cities.
As a result, people of Barranquilla are an exotic mix of the indigenous population, the Spanish, African and the large influx of cultures that moved to Barranquilla during and after both World Wars.
As a result, the Barranquilla Prepagos will vary from brown skin and light eyes to white skin and black hair. A perfect example of the ethnic diversity you will find in Barranquilla is the half Colombian, half Lebanese Pop Singer Shakira.
The Barranquilla Prepagos are known as Costena's, and similar to Cartagena, reflect the city's multi-cultural blend.
Like all Colombians, you will feel welcomed and appreciated by the Costena's.
- The Ernesto Cortizzos International Airport in Barranquilla is only a 2 hour flight from Miami. During the busy holiday season, American Airlines has daily flights from Miami to Barranquilla.
