Santa Marta

Memory posted 5 months ago

Attended this Colombian beach town for a wedding this year! More popular with domestic tourists than foreign guests (who tend to stick to Cartegena) the town has a laid back air and is very walkable. The beach in town is not that great but there are great options a short taxi ride away.

AC Hotel by Marriott Santa Marta

Memory posted 5 months ago

Standard Marriott brand hotel one block from the marina. This and the nearby Hilton garden inn are both solid options. Some rooms have balconies with nice views of the Sierra Nevada and the Caribbean. Breakfast is Continental style but they’ll make you an omelette if you ask. Free coffee in the lobby

Good and cheap ceviche, although the sauce is a bit heavy on the mayo.

Museo del Oro Tairona (Tairona Gold Museum)

Memory posted 5 months ago

Set in one of Santa Marta’s oldest buildings, this free museum provides a great introduction to the city with exhibits about the pre-Hispanic civilizations, conquest and the independence struggles. Simon Bolivar died in Santa Marta. A must see is the Caiman costumes some local indigenous people wear for festivals.

Parque de Los Novios

Memory posted 5 months ago

This lively square is just one block from the beach. In the evening it’s great for people watching and it’s surrounded by some of Santa Marta’s best bars and restaurants.

Rocoto

Memory posted 5 months ago

Spectacularly good Peruvian food a block away from park los novios. The menu is only in Spanish but a combination of google translate and a very patient waiter helped us navigate it. The coconut rice and octopus were both melt in your mouth!
