  • 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.
  • Skip Parque de los Novios and have a romantic moment here! You can hide away in a bench that's actually not damaged and have an intimate conversation without being bugged to buy something every 2 minutes! Very relaxed vibe!
  • Beautiful place, clean and organized.
