  • It is no longer about times back. Noisy and very busy. That is not bad on a beach. It is a little dirty. There are better beaches in Santa Marta.

  • Good beaches to enjoy a good ceviche and tanning. Ideal for family and friends, and despite being so busy does not feel so much harassment of hawkers. The best? View of the hills and the mountains from the beaches.

  • It is against what you can enjoy in Nice and open beaches. Few hotels have direct access to the sea and most of the accommodations have their years.

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.
