Western Costa Norte includes four departments of Colombia:
- 1 Barranquilla - the Gold Port and fourth largest city in the nation isn't necessarily that exciting most of the year, but its Carnival is the second biggest in the world after Rio's, and is an amazing cultural experience and one heck of a party!
- 2 Cartagena - the Heroic City, capital of the Bolívar department is Colombia's tourist city par excellence. The colonial architecture and the skyscrapers can be seen together in this city that offers a unique experience of festivals, historic attractions, restaurants, and hotels.
- 3 Santa Cruz de Mompox - a friendly colonial town on an island on the Magdalena river
