Valencia Brook's Waterfalls, Santa Marta

4.2
#5 of 10 in Parks in Santa Marta
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.

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.
