Paseo El Camellon, Santa Marta

3.5
Visit Paseo El Camellon and stroll the peaceful promenade stretching along the calm Caribbean coast. The first Spanish European settlers disembarked from their ships at these shores and initiated the founding of the city. Statues as well as restaurants line the promenade; if you're peckish, here's your chance to sample some tasty local cuisine. If visiting at the end of the day, you'll be treated to a picturesque sunset. Make Paseo El Camellon a centerpiece of your Santa Marta vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Santa Marta road trip planning tool .

  • Long walk of the city. A sentence that is closed by the port. Bustling and pleasant anyway. Recommended

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.
