Quebrada Valencia, Santa Marta

(4.1/5 based on 40+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Santa marta has the great quality of being surrounded by sea but is also fresh water sources as Valencia, is broken it a few minutes from the entrance of the tayrona Park is broken... There is a very nice trail to creeks, on the trail you will find a typical food which makes it much more fun walk , to the get find a well small but of good depth with water that low of the Sierra Nevada, if er s adventurer can climb and find two wells more than great depth, by security not leave access to the third well which called well of the devil. If not want to walk also is the option of rent a horse to do the tour.

  • It is a nice place to go, however it depends on some conditions. It is good to go during rainy season, otherwise there will not be enough water. Get ready for a 30 minute walk in the rainforest to get...  more »
  • It is the things that must live before you die, is about 15 minutes from the Tayrona Park, important to park by the entrance to the waterfalls cueta $5.000 Colombian pesos, very rich to make the journey to horse Lords responsible sell the tour are too friendly and polite, they explain everything in travel and stop the way for toamrte photos. The camini inside sales of typical meals and a delicious coca tea that sells an indigenous industry. When you reach the Gorge the majestic place becomes exciting so that you can vibrate, interesting climbing rocks and reach one of the natural pools that form the same waterfall. The entire route is spectacular. Travel in horse costs only $10,000 Colombian pesos per trip and it is worthwhile to do it that way.
