While staying a few days in Barranquilla, I plan to head out of town to nature for a few days and would like to leave some luggage in town. I am also not leaving via the airport, so I would prefer a location in the city somewhere.

Where can I safely leave a single suitcase or backpack for a few days in the town of Barranquilla, Colombia?

    I wont post this as an answer because I'm not 100% sure, but luggage storage is not common in Colombia. I'm Colombian so I've never had the need for one, but I've never seen one either. – DGaleano Jan 20 '16 at 18:31

    Couldn't find any, there was a storage location in Cartagena bus terminal but not in Barranquilla. That doesn't mean there isn't any, just not where I looked. – Itai Feb 12 '16 at 13:47

    @pnuts - Unfortunately no. I realize its hard to prove there isn't but it certainly is not at any of the two bus terminals I used. Didn't check the airport though as it was not on my path. – Itai Sep 16 '16 at 3:03

    @pnuts - Ended up carrying all my stuff and getting a better workout than expected ;) The hotel probably could have stored the luggage but there was so many people coming in and out, as it was carnaval, staff changes, that I didn't want to risk it. – Itai Sep 16 '16 at 5:29

    fedorqui unfortunately no. I'm not from that region and my only source at this point would be internet and @markmayo could do it himself. As I said before I don't think there is one storage easy to find but I like your idea about a hotel. Mark if during your research you find a site in spanish that you don't fully understand send me a link at diego.galeano at gmail and I'll try to help. – DGaleano Oct 14 '16 at 16:19

Neither the Barranquilla bus terminal or the airport have any luggage storage facilities (or at least none are listed on their websites), so your best bet is to book a hotel room for a few days and drop off your things there. Booking.com lists a few acceptable options for as little as 20 EUR per day, which is possibly acceptable for many travelers.
