  • It is a park in a very nice area of the city surrounded by great variety of restaurants, it is ideal to go out at night to drink.

  • Many food and entertainment on and around this square. (Too) many performances by street artists, some of which were very good. Also nice to ff hang out.

  • In one of the corners of the square are concentrated all the bars with terraces with beautiful views of the city. If you want to party... This is the place to go.

  • Overcrowded with to many loud bars playing music. Food is a bit overpriced, but it is a safer part of town with quite a few tourists.
  • Lots of activities all the time, restaurants and easy access if you're staying downtown. Safe during the night , wouldn't venture out too late or outside of the radius...
  • It's a good place to hang out with friends, delicious food, beautiful places and good for parties
  • Cool place with some nice restaurants and a young vibe. Definitely one of the best places to see in Santa Marta.
  • Probably one of the better places to just get out and walk around in Santa Marta.

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.
