Quinta de San Pedro Alejandrino, Santa Marta
(4.2/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
Simon Bolivar spent the last two weeks of his life at Quinta de San Pedro Alejandrino. A Spanish supporter of Colombia's independence, who at the time produced rum, honey, and sugar on the estate, invited Bolivar to rest at the 17th-century colonial villa before his planned trip to Europe. Today, the estate features several monuments dedicated to Bolivar, including a massive "Altar de la Patria," a museum exhibiting works by artists from the countries he helped liberate, and a botanical garden inhabited by iguanas. Look for the decadent marble bathtub, which is for many visitors the highlight of the tour.
