Carlos El Pibe Valderrama Statue, Santa Marta

1.9
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. City tours generally make stops here for photo opportunities, but finding the location on your own requires a little bit of a drive from the center of the city. Near the statue you can find many stands selling souvenirs. Carlos El Pibe Valderrama Statue is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Santa Marta Edition.

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.
