Many visitors begin their Santa Marta holiday, surrounded by urban clutter and heavy traffic, expecting little from the city in terms of historical importance.
Venture out of the city with trips to Barranquilla (Parque del Sol, Museo del Caribe, & more), Plaza Centenario (in Cienaga) and Minca (Memorial Museum of the Sierra Nevada, Museo del Cacao de Minca, & more). And it doesn't end there: stroll through Playa Blanca, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Parque Nacional Natural Tayrona, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and pause for some serene contemplation at Catedral de Santa Marta.

For other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, read our Santa Marta road trip planning website .

December in Santa Marta sees daily highs of 39°C and lows of 28°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
