#20 of 25 in Outdoors in Santa Marta
Outdoor Activity
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.

  • We were with my family in this place and really worth the penalty. It is a beautiful natural site. It is 1 hour approx. of Rodadero in private vehicles. Walk something like 1 kilometer (half an hour) from the road by a trail. They also rent horses at an acceptable price ($10,000) to go to the Gorge. The Gorge is beautiful. It is small and it is possible to plunge into the water from a stone from a couple of metres in height. There are many small fish at the site where is nothing, which makes it an attraction of nature. We went early in the morning (10 a.m.) and not was crowded, so we enjoyed it very much.

  • All persons must pass to meet this Gorge, is relaxing and beautiful, very safe. Indigenous people of the area you will find in this magical place, you can purchase priced natural products such as chocolate, coffee, coca leaves among others. To reach the waterfalls you must pay $3000 per person and approximately 20 minutes from ecological walk up to the first waterfall.

  • Right on the bridge over the river hike can start down a path of about 3 kilometers along and passing the Creek several times. There is a cooperative that comes to col$ 3,000 per entry and have managed to organize the place, keeping it clean and placing vendors in a specific travel sites. It can also be done on horseback by Col$ 10,000. At the end is a small waterfall and a few natural pools on some huge rocks where you can bathe - cold water! Preferred, for being a very good ride, quite economical and much more organized than other attractions of the region.

  • 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.

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.
