    The square is very beautiful and central location. The best views of this place I found them from the balconies of the Tayrona gold Museum, housed in the Custom House, is free, and with very interesting exhibits on the history of Santa Marta.

    In a representative area city, pleasant to navigate, but currently is in deplorable conditions, we note the lack of interest of the community and the local administration.

    It is in the central area of Santa Marta, is a must-see for its easy access, since it is difficult to not go out there when you walk through the city to meet her.

    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.

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.
