    I was with my family visiting the place... it is a place with a lot of potential, but poorly exploited in some aspects that could be improved... There are good signs but bad signal if one wants to take the route without a guide... the day I had little influx and is not easy to know where take when one completes the route of aquariums and continue... not could go to the event of shark feeding , that I hope is much tidier... overall it is nice and useful to learn but it has much potential to take advantage of...

    Preferred to learn more about marine life and share with animals. The investment is worth it. We purchased the transportation and tickets with taximarino for 42,000 without lunch, with the boat transport, insurance travel, entry into the Aquarium marine world and arrival to playa blanca. With a secure transport. The dolphin show, you can take photos with them and swim with dolphins and sharks. They handle combo with 62,000 that includes lunch.

    For those of us from Europe or USA this is a pretty average tourist attraction at best. It's WAY to expensive for what they provide - and it's pretty run down as well The shark feeding was a big disappointment - didn't see very much of the sharks, and they didn't feed them! Avoid thi place, and go and see some of the natural beauty around Santa Marta

    I loved the sharks. I went with my family, we have a young child, apparently it is not designed for children of such a young age, but we adapt and we had a great. Care for you students of the U.Tadeo, which sometimes are a little careless with information both on the deal, but it is a very important aid for them. If you have questions on the tour always there is a pilo student that you can ask something. It is a relaxed plan, if you're demanding you will not like.

Where to stay in Santa Marta

No matter where you stay in Santa Marta's historical center, you'll never be more than a few minutes' walk from the beach. The old town offers countless accommodations, ranging from energetic youth hostels to cozy, family-run inns. Look to the seafront just outside of the historical center for luxury hotels and beach resorts. For a quieter experience, stay in the nearby beach town of Taganga, just north of Santa Marta.
