Many visitors begin their Santa Marta holiday, surrounded by urban clutter and heavy traffic, expecting little from the city in terms of historical importance.
Get out of town with these interesting Santa Marta side-trips: Minca (Memorial Museum of the Sierra Nevada, El Dorado Bird Reserve, & more), Barranquilla (Todomono, Museo del Caribe, & more) and Playas de Palomino (in Palomino). There's much more to do: explore the striking landscape of Parque Nacional Natural Tayrona, walk around Parque de Los Novios, explore the world behind art at Quinta de San Pedro Alejandrino, and stroll through Playa Grande.
