You can't go wrong by visiting "El Malecon" there are activities during the day for children and at night there are many restaurants and small bars. Go with a local that knows the area. Most of all Malecon it is famous for the delicious food you find, I always make a stop every time I visit CuCuta.

I didn't know much about the history of Colombia when our group was told that we would visit the museum. I know so much more now. The museum gives you a good opportunity to learn a great deal in a short time.
The grounds are extensive. You can easily walk a couple of miles if you want to see the entire campus.
You should have someone with you that can translate Spanish. The buildings are wonderful to see but you will want to read about the history that took place to bring freedom to Colombia. That I know of, there is no audio tour of the place. You will have plenty of Reading to do with captions of pictures and historical documents!
There is an area for children to play. It was the most popular single room in the whole museum!

This is the Museum of Modern Art of Pamplona, but 90 % of the works are actually from the personal collection of Miguel Vajdh, the artist born in Pamplona and died in Bogota. He was no doubt an innovative sculptor, most of his works were done on wood and metal. Each piece of at is many pieces of art, as you can look at it from so many angles, that it transforms itself before your eyes. The museum has been created in one of most ancient colonial houses over the main square of Pamplona, a beautiful building restored with the idea of housing a collection of contemporary art. Sadly enough, very few people visit the museum, “around six or seven a week” according to the information provided by one of the guards at the entrance.

In cucuta they call it el parque de las palomas because many Pigeons seem to stay roaming around the Plaza. Plaza is pretty safe, but i would avoid showing jewelry since some people with no money ask for money. You can also take sometime to. visit the Cathedral, which is next to the Plaza.

Really nice Cathedral and in front of a plaza called el parque Santander. The place is full of people so dont wear any jewelry. Although it isnt a dangerous place you still have to be careful because around that plaza some people ask you for money especially if you're well dressed lol

Me parecio un bonito Lugar, la arquitectura externa hace que sea un lugar digno de admirar, al interior tambien muy buena decoración y bien organizado, vale la pena entrar y admirar la paz y tranquilidad que se siente en su interior, además que se siente un ambiente muy fresco y silencioso
