Nabusimake, Santa Marta

4.8
#8 of 11 in Parks in Santa Marta
An important village for the indigenous Arhuaca people, Nabusimake remains a place of symbolism and mysticism. The inhabitants of the village have a rich ancestry reaching back hundreds of years, and they consider the area the epicenter and capital of all that is significant to their culture. This remote village is not the easiest to reach, so be sure to go with an experienced driver who can maneuver badly paved roads. The scenic views of the surrounding mountain vista, pristine crystal clear waters, and verdant forestry are all breathtaking; bring your camera. Nabusimake is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Santa Marta Edition.

  • Nabusimake is a cute spot in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, but does not belong to Santa Marta, in the jurisdiction of Pueblo Bello in Cesar, a village from where should hire a truck that manages to raise the road so rugged should take to reach Nabusimake; Once beyond the magic of the mountains feels, green is impressive, the tranquility is breathed in every corner, its river water is Frost as their night. It is a place to be with nature and our ancestors, because it is very accessible but worth knowing it!

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.
