Palomino is one of northern Colombia's famed beach locations, and the beach does have its charms (its jungle-esque, palm-tree-lined shores are one of them. The strong undercurrents and rips make it nearly impossible to swim at Palomino Beach. If you're going to attempt it, make sure you swim between the red flags and that there are other people around. That said, the real reason to come to Palomino is not the beach at all, it's the Sierra Nevada Mountain range that runs just behind the town.

The mountains offer outdoor loving adventurers myriad hiking options, waterfalls to see, and other nearby tiny towns to explore, including the incredibly beautiful Minca. All this makes Palomino the perfect base to explore Colombia's Caribbean coast -- and what's more, frequent and inexpensive buses make it easy to do.

For now, it's mostly Colombian tourism, but as word gets out about this magical, tranquil part of Colombia international tourism increases. What this means is that the town is packed full of Palomino, Colombia hostels, guesthouses, and local eateries. Palomino is perhaps the most well-established town in this part of Colombia, with the exception of Santa Marta and Minca.
