This city right by the beach is a stop over to great beaches and the lost city jungle track. Here you will find busy markets, some night life with busy working girls and a nice strip on the beach which has hotels, restaurants and small bars all with patios.
Must see attractions:
Rodadero (small touristy town just 15 minutes away from Santa Marta)
Taganga (small fisher, hippie, scuba-diving town about 25 minutes from Santa Marta)
Playa Blanca (beautiful beach)
Aquarium with dolphin and sea-lion shows.
Taking a 20 minute bus ride to Taganga is highly recommended.
Santa Marta has a year-round tropical climate. It is hot during the day, but the evening sea breezes are cool and make sunsets and nightlife particularly appealing.
From Santa Marta you take a 20 minute bus ride to Taganga and you leave behind a busy city to enter a quite, charming fishers town with a couple of secluded beaches and all the peace you are …
