    The first thing that must be done in Santa Marta is to walk the Boardwalk which allows a beautiful view of the sunset that he is hiding behind the mountains of the city's port in the afternoon. This is a kind of handicraft fair where can be easily distracted 1 hour looking at all the crafts made by the same people and also very cheap are! If you want to bring a souvenir

    It is a hike to enjoy in company in a sunset seen El Morro, the colors of the sky and the sea, feel the breeze, eat an ice cream or what you cause, buy some crafts vendors, watch the boats in the distance.

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.
