Paseo El Camellon, Santa Marta

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.

  • Although in this site you can swim on the beach, I do not recommend it much, it is something dirty, the Ridge has a very nice view, especially at sunset. You can walk from side to side and is a very relaxing walk. On one side is the marina of Santa Marta and sometimes put sites where locals sell artesianas. In high season is super full.

  • It is a very nice walk overlooking part of the ancient city, on one side and on the other you can see a very trendy district with high-rise where living persons of high purchasing power, and thus also the port looks. It is recommended to visit it

  • It's a cute place, but very sloppy, full of garbage Pier, has a very good view of the port and marina, which hurts let stop the tourist attractions

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.
