    A tribute to the great master of Colombian football in his hometown. Passing by this place was part of a tour in chiva to visit attractions in Santa Marta.

    Take a taxi from the center of santa marta, 6,000 POPs. For lovers of football. A good place for a great memory. There are gentlemen who sold suvernis in the statue and they give you pelucan and take you pictures if so you wish. Your tip is voluntary.

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.
