Quebrada Valencia, Santa Marta

4.2
#18 of 24 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.

  • 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!

  • Beautiful, quiet, calm place to enjoy nature.
  • A place to enjoy a tranquil, quiet walk among the shadows of the trees. The trail is well demarcated, the guides are perfect connoisseurs of the region and its history and wells and waterfalls are a great spectacle for the eyes and for the adventurous spirits.

  • It is a very nice place to walk and enjoy in different wells, its water is clear and has a fall of relaxing water to get under them.

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.
