Passionate about every detail, I see beauty where others see complaints. Differences are the most special things in this life. That's how I am, spontaneous and instinctive.

Tour description

I am a traveler and I lived for a few years, outside the place where I grew up, then I came back as "Juanita came back" (ask me during the experience who Juanita is), I have managed to see my neighborhood with the eyes of a traveler.

We will walk through the streets of the most popular neighborhood in the city, where the houses are colorful and many carnival makers live together; Although we will see several famous places of the city in the area, it is not the center of this experience, but its people.

We will enter to see the essence of the typical Barranquilla, their ways of life, their idiosyncrasies, we will share with some of them and we will tell them the story behind the carnival and behind those who make it possible.
Did you know that Barrio Abajo was declared ADN (Orange Development Area)?
Did you know that it is certified as an Asset of Cultural Interest in the district?
Traditional games, ancestral cuisine, dance, art, a lot of familiarity and more, you will be able to experience the amazement that every traveler feels on their way to the unknown and their interest in knowledge.

I like to say that I have friends all over the world, the exchange of cultures is also a form of retribution that I value very much and through you, I also nourish myself. However, I do this on my own, I pay for the transfer to the meeting point, I pay living expenses and I also share with the makers and cultural representatives of the area who are artists such as dancers, musicians, plastic artists, painters, artisans; so your compensation to me should take into account the number of participants and the immersive experiences they offer (Delivering it directly to them is also possible).

Each smell, taste, space and custom have an origin and meaning, those of the place where I grew up, I will share them with you as a friend passionately shares what he knows.
We are going to discover, in its origin, why Barranquilla is the way it is and why Barrio Abajo is the cradle of the city and of the carnival.

This was a very good tour. Ana was also very good. The majority of the tour was in Spanish and she assisted me with clarifying certain things in English. I would highly recommend this tour and Ana as a guide.
