Palomino used to be a peaceful little seaside spot with a few hostels. Today, and I can’t explain why it has become a very busy destination that has lost a lot of its charm.
The place is perfect if you want to meet other travelers and stay in nice hostels or hotels, but for the rest, it’s not really the ideal place.
In fact, apart from a bit of tubing, there is not much to do in Palomino. The beach is not really heavenly, you can’t swim far because the sea is often rough because of strong currents. It is crowded and you won’t find the village atmosphere. There is a possibility to party a little on the weekends, but not during the week.
If you are looking for a small fishing village typical of this part of the Caribbean coast, I strongly recommend you to add Dibulla to your Colombian itinerary. It is a hidden paradise, little known to tourists, that we visited during one of our last expeditions on the Caribbean coast. A real crush for the atmosphere that reigns there.
