An unforgettable day awaits you with a tour to Santa Marta from Cartagena where we cross the coast of the Caribbean Sea to reach Barranquilla and take a break for lunch. Then we continue our drive to Santa Marta, a 226 kilometer ride in 4 hours and 30 minutes.

Sitting at the buttress of the Sierra Nevada, Santa Marta is majestic with in the background, the highest coastal mountain in the world. Capital of the province of Magdalena, it is the second oldest city in South America.

The tour begins by passing through the Rodadero neighborhood to see this magnificent seaside resort and discover a panoramic view of the bay of Rodadero and Santa Marta on the other side.

Then we head towards the Quinta de San Pedro de Alejandro, the most visited attraction, where on December 17, 1830 died the liberator of Colombia, Simon Bolivar. The place is beautiful with its gardens, its abundant flora and fauna. Here you will find ancient trees and more than 150 species of plants exposed, including varieties of orchids, cactus, fruit trees, mangroves and medicinal plants. You can even observe living animals, such as iguanas, parrots, hawks and hummingbirds.

A short stop to see the "El Pibe" monument, just outside the Eduardo Santos football stadium, a 6-meter bronze sculpture honoring football star Carlos Valderama, who was born in Santa Marta. From there we go to the Cathedral of Santa Marta with its colonial style and having been the first church built in Latin America.

Then you will visit the historical center of Santa Marta, which is one of the main tourist sites of the city, where there is a great historical richness, architectural jewelry and interesting places such as old houses, parks and colonial squares. At the Gold Museum, you will appreciate the ethnic and anthropological belonging of the ancient Tayronas culture, their beliefs, their myths and their trades.

From Santa Marta, we pass through the spectacular view of Taganga bay. This small village is inhabited mainly by fishermen of the area, and it is very popular for relaxation and snorkeling due to its beauty, calm and transparent waters.

Finally, you have the choice of relaxing at the beach of Rodadero or at Taganda in order to enjoy the sea, the sun or to make purchases.
