Quebrada Valencia, Santa Marta

(3.7/5 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.

  • 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.

  • In the 56 Km road to Riohacha, will reach entering along and through a ravine with lush vegetation, until the fall of rock and the natural swimming pool formed below. the landscape well worth, waterfalls although small are beautiful, and bathing in the natural wells cooling after the walk. on the way back you can buy in informal jobs, roasted banana, arepas de yuca(recomendada la señora Gladys), coffee and organic cacao and even handicrafts. To those who love nature and photography, you are going to like.
