When to Go

Honda is hot all year round, with temperatures almost always in the 30s°C (high 80s-low 100s°F). If you are around in February, check out the plundering of the river during the Subienda Fishing Festival.

Subienda Fishing Festival
Every February, Honda’s population swells to nearly 60,000 for the Subienda Fishing Festival. During the festival, participants fish the waters of the mighty Magdalena River. Fish like nicuro, bagre, kapax, bocachico and tolomba are caught in abundance and offered to all to share. Although the main focus of the festival is the fish, other events take place. One lucky lady wins a beauty pageant and is elected to the Reinado de la Subienda (the festival’s royal court). There are also rodeos and parades. The Festival de la Subienda is Honda’s main event of the year. It transforms a decaying city into a party location, so don’t forget to book a room far enough in advance.
