Nabusimake, Santa Marta

4.8
#4 of 7 in Nature in Santa Marta District
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!
