Getting There

The easiest way to get to Barranquilla is to fly, directly and unequivocally, to, yes, Barranquilla. We have a solid International Airport: Ernesto Cortissoz International Airport.

You can fly in directly from Miami, Bogotá, Medellín, Cali and Panamá. Just in case you decided to pick one of the aforementioned routes.

From Cartagena, Santa Marta or Valledupar

If you decide that you want to experience the sights, sounds, beauty, complexities, and flavours of the region beforehand (which we highly encourage), you can hire a private transportation to travel from:

  • Cartagena (approximately, 2 hr minutes away)
  • Santa Marta (approximately, 2 hr minutes away)
  • Valledupar (approximately, 5 hrs away)

We have arranged for a private transportation company to accommodate any special requests you might have, either from these cities or from Barranquilla’s airport to the hotel:

Take into consideration that this communication must be done in Spanish. If you need any help, do let us know.

From Airport Ernesto Cortissoz

If you decide to fly in directly to Barranquilla’s airport, you may arrange private transportation with Transportes S&M, or order an Uber, or take a secure taxi directly inside the airport (these are absolutely safe and trustworthy).

Accomodations

Hotel Movich Buró 51

We have partnered the Hotel Movich Buró 51 for your accommodations. Please send an email to Evans Ruiz evans.ruiz@movichhotels.com with the dates you wish to book and she’ll help you out with the rest of the process. Do include in the subject: Wedding Carmen and Antonio.

Hotel El Prado

Another option is to stay at the historic Hotel El Prado. You can go to their website and check out dates, rates, and availability.

Ladies

Evening dress*

Please take into consideration for both, dress and shoes, that this will be an evening, Caribbean garden party, with uneven surfaces. In other words: you will be walking on grass, but dancing on a floor.

Gentlemen

Evening dark suit

Take into consideration that this will be an evening garden party, in the Caribbean, so wear light fabrics (light wool, cotton, or linen should be fine). If you can, wear a jacket with no inner lining which will be fresher. Tie will be optional but strongly encouraged. Please, no boat loafers.

*Refer to lookbook for more options on what to wear and what not to wear.

We will have private vans leaving the Hotel Movich Buró 51 at a specified time and returning to the city every hour or so. We highly encourage taking this transportation as getting to the house can be tricky. Please watch this space for more information.
