Santa Marta is a city on the Caribbean Sea in the north of Colombia. A busy port and prominent tourist destination. Founded in 1525, it was one of the first Spanish settlements in Colombia. It’s the gateway for trips into the Tayrona National Natural Park, and for treks to the Lost City.

La Quinta de San Pedro Alejandrino

Built in the 17th century and is famous for being the death place of Simón Bolívar in 1830.

Tayrona National Park

The park is a large protected area which covers the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. It’s known for its palm shaded coves, coastal lagoons, rainforest and rich biodiversity. At its heart is the Pueblito ruins. These are an archaeological site accessed via forest trails, with structures built by the Tayrona civilization.

Ciudad Perdida,

Ciudad Perdida, Spanish for “Lost City.” The Lost City is a true archaeological marvel and one of the most prominent and important historical sites in Colombia. However, the only way to get there is by trekking but it is worth it as it is stunning.
