"Santa Marta" Colombia Things to Do Tip by darthmilmo

Colombia Things to Do: 240 reviews and 516 photos


Santa Marta is not the pritiest of places, but it does offer several interesting side trips nearby. The city itself has a few sights, including the place where Simon Bolivar died, which is la Quinta de San Juan Alejandrino shown in this picture. As for short trips from Sta Marta, start by diving in beautiful Taganga. Then head for a few days to Parque Tayrona where you can relax and even do some hiking. Afterwards, with your batteries recharged do the 6 day trek to the Lost City. So much to do, so little time :)
