Santa Marta, The City
Welcome to Santa Marta
Welcome to the city between the Sierra and the sea. A territory privileged by nature, where Garcia Marquez’s texts transcend and become reality with the magical biodiverse landscapes, history, and multiculturalism. With a Lost City in the middle of the mountains, which has the joy of being the heart of the world. Where the Sierra Nevada with the highest snow-capped peaks in the country meets the warm and crystalline waters of the Colombian Caribbean Sea in Tayrona Park.
A place where life is simple and joyful and ancestral traditions of the communities of the Sierra Nevada blend with artisanal fishing in Taganga, green and blue waters and spectacular sunsets.
This website collects the main attractions you can experience in the city, as well as less conventional alternatives that have emerged with the growth of tourism in Santa Marta.
