    Perhaps is more propaganda that make you or the fame that has nationwide. The beaches are very nice and also very clean. The tents have to negotiate them first why you want them to rent more than 50 thousand pesos. Coconut lemonade sold me 15 thousand and at the end. They wanted to offer them in 11 thousand. They have no prices fair and less accurate. The breakfast is something cost vs. service and quality. In general I feel that spend much for what you get and enjoy

    Ideal for holidays but accompanied by good, very nice place in Santa Marta with other interesting and beautiful places more per visit. Very carefully with the Sun, is necessary to protect themselves well and hydration constantly. Very cute place.

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.
