Valencia Brook's Waterfalls, Santa Marta

4.2
#5 of 11 in Parks in Santa Marta
Waterfall Nature / Park
Bask in the pristine, refreshingly cool cascades of Valencia Brook's Waterfalls. The fresh water at the falls acts as a huge reward for the 15-20 minute trek it takes to get to this hidden gem from the town. Though the waterfalls themselves are smaller than other falls in the country, the large, crystal clear pools of water they form are excellent for swimming in. Climb further up the rocks for better and better swimming conditions the higher up you go. No need to overdo sunscreen as this area is naturally canopied by leafy trees.

  • If is an exotic and different place to find the birth of a stream from a high mountain, but I expected something better. affects it the road being traveled by horses who leave their droppings everywhere. We need more control to the visitors, who run unnecessary risks to climb the mountain. You should have signage. It is not a site to which he would return on a next trip.

  • The walk is worth it. We went with higher adultps and fared very well on the road for like half an hour. Site is beautifully dyed and the waterfall is beautiful.

  • Quebrada Valencia is a true paradise in the middle of the forest. It is easy to reach by own car, public transport or excursion. You should walk for about 20 minutes in the middle of a path that crosses the Creek several times. Its vegetation is exuberant and the purity of the clear water invites to bathing from the beginning. Then one finds the first well, beautiful and fitted with a waterfall. There it begins to climb the rock and found many other wells, all of crystal clear water. It can be the massage in the small waterfall, jumping from rocks to deep wells, enjoy peace and harmony in the midst of nature. This tour is suitable for children and adults.

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.
