AllMusic Review by

This double album feels like it was recorded on the road, and actually it was inspired by the Latin American Flamingos tour. Enrique Bunbury visits in his own way various genres and styles: like bolero, tango, ranchera, and Latin rock. His lyrics also frequently mention names and places from this region. The result is ragged and eclectic. Although his singing is passionate, Bunbury fails to make a vital connection like in his previous albums. This albums is somehow distant and cold. There are many common places that Bunbury has visited over and over and over, and sometimes he seems to be overacting his style. Although it's not as strong as Flamingos or Pequeño, this album has many standout points like "Una Canción Triste" or "Palo de Mayo." But even the most inspired moments on El Viaje a Ninguna Parte make it difficult to overlook that unfortunately not all these story-songs carry emotional impact but vague melodramatic pomposity.
