Carlos Valderrama, the famous soccer player who hails from the city, is honored at Carlos El Pibe Valderrama Statue, where a statue stands outside of an old stadium. Tourists visit to grab a photo with the statue that's topped off with a hanging plant to represent Valderrama’s signature golden afro.

  • El Pibe aka C. Vaderrama is a folk hero. And he is so revered but particularly in Santa Marta, Colombia. For football fans, is a visit to the statue in the vicinity of the station duty!

  • Very well done... is a recognition to the best player that gave Colombia... to my understanding... and that is a native of santa marta.

  • If you like the football you can draw you a picture. beside a stadium that will be demolished. It is away from the old town so you must go in transport or in the city tour. It is to say I was there.
