Santa Marta Highlights
Just a few reasons you'll fall for this destination
The Lost City
This one ain’t for the faint-hearted. The Lost City trek, through the northern part of Colombia, is far from a walk in the park, but the pay-off is beyond worth it. The 4-day hike is a rad way to explore nearby jungles, wander the ancient ruins of a Pre-Columbian society, and learn about the indigenous Kogi tribe. And that’s all before you’ve even reached the final destination: the Lost City, which has been pristinely preserved for centuries.
Rolling hills covered in lush rainforest, running alongside secluded beaches of white sand, lagoons and rivers, Parque Nacional Natural Tayrona offers a kaleidoscope of terrain that makes it well worth the journey there. While many endangered species hide in the shadows, the main draw of Tayrona is the expansive scenery that magically makes your worries dissipate.
Step into the pages of a book
It’s not every day that you get to live out the magical scene of a famous novel of a legendary Colombian writer. Fans of Nobel Prize-winning novelist Gabriel Garcia Marquez get to do exactly that in the sleepy Colombian town of Aracataca — Marquez’s birthplace. Readers familiar with his work are able to pinpoint specific motifs and Easter eggs from his landmark novel, from the characteristic yellow butterflies, to the old railway station.
Old world magic
So, get this: Santa Marta is South America’s oldest surviving city. Having blossomed among beautiful beaches and gorgeous greenery in 1525, it has all of the romantic, colonial charm of a perfectly-preserved historical centre. The dreamy Cathedral, the majestic Santo Domingo Convent, and the iconic Consistorial House are can't-miss sites for any day exploring the old-town.
As a Colombian-Caribbean coastal gem, Santa Marta’s culinary offering boasts a delicious blend of African, Spanish and indigenous flavor profiles. Rich in textures, smells and spices, the traditional recipes you’ll get to try have been developed over several centuries. Buckle up on the foodie train for journey through time.
The New Venice
Drawing inspo from its Italian counterpart, the Nueva Venecia is a floating town, anchored to a marsh that leads from the River Magdalena to the Caribbean Sea. Houses here are built on stilts with residents making their way around by boat. And the best part is the warm welcome you'll receive from the 300 community members who'll lean out of their doors and windows to wave hello as you glide on by.
