Plaza Parque Simon Bolivar, Santa Marta

3.5
#6 of 10 in Parks in Santa Marta
Admire the impressive statue of the eponymous Bolivar at Plaza Parque Simon Bolivar, or simply relax in one of the vibrant surrounding coffee shops. Located in the heart of town, the square draws scores of locals and tourists to its water fountain. The addition of quite a few vendors makes this place a hive of activity. Get away from the blazing heat and nab yourself a canopied spot under one of the plaza's many trees; you might even spot an iguana or two.

  • It is more a place of passage than a place where we're going with pleasure. The atmosphere is quite cold, impersonal, is not conducive to stay there. Too bad, because it is near the shore...

  • Easily accessible by a short walk from the beach. Simon Bolivar is very important and worth the visit.  more »
  • A Colombian square more. Nothing to highlight. Central fountain. Next to the sea. Walking you find. Without more

  • A nice place to sit with a friend and have a chat. You also get a nice breeze from the beach
  • Not a bad spot in Santa Marta during the day, not a place to go at night. Has a choice of ATM's
  • A park full of people throughout the day (workers and coffee sellers in the morning, practicing street dancers in the evening), close to the sea and the lighthouse.
  • During the day is perfect for stroll around. You will find museums, coffee shop, library and the most beautiful sight of the bay of Santa Marta.
  • Nice weather , busy city

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.
