Quebrada Valencia, Santa Marta

4.2
#21 of 39 in Outdoors in Santa Marta
Head to Quebrada Valencia for a quiet and relaxing place to swim in pristine crystal clear waters among picturesque waterfall cascades. Be sure to pack essentials such as towels, snacks, and appropriate footwear, as it does get slippery around the pool. If you're feeling especially adventurous, continue the trail up the rock formations to find another pristine waterfall. The trail to the pool and waterfall is around 20 minutes, and shouldn't be too much trouble for those of moderate walking experience.

  • It offers a very nice and pleasant landscape to live in family. Walk of about 30 minutes approximately. Also offers route on horseback. Arriving at the Creek you find a quiet paisa and was advised to climb along a side of the waterfall to enjoy lakes that form. Not get lunch, only sell food chopping as mature cheese and things as well. I recommend taking this destination as a site I spend.

  • I suggest making the trail early, not after the 9:00. Easy trail with about 20 min in duration but crosses wetted parts, wear shoes that can get wet. We arrived at 9:00, we went by bus to the entrance and when we arrived at the waterfall no one!!! Is make sure God's presence there. Very beautiful! We were enjoying the waterfall from the top (climbing the rocks ... easy) and going down the first was already full. Very relaxing ride!

  • Good spot to visit. Beautifull waterfall. Busy with locals spending the day
  • Beautiful, quiet, calm place to enjoy nature.
  • It is a place of encounter with nature, feel an inner peace. It does not require too much physical and bathing with crystal clear water that descends from the sierra nevada is the best. Along the way you can delight your palate tasting the ripe banana with cheese and snack offering exquisite roast!

  • Delicious place to stop if you are on the way to la Guajira or have extra time in Santa Marta. If you're own car, good looks early to avoid the wave of tourists coming to 10 o'clock in the morning. Carries shoes that can get wet because you have to do a 30 minute walk and pass small stretches of river, several times. On the road sold good bananas arepas with cheese if you want to have breakfast.

  • The best place to visit family, pleasant climate, enough vegetation, 15 to 20 minutes walk to reach the waterfalls and incredible scenery.
