SANTA MARTA, COLOMBIA

(Early-2022, 1 WEEK)

 

  • It is hot, but not unbearably hot (30C/86F). You can walk outside in the shade and it's comfortable because it's  NOT humid. Dew point is 68F while high, it is bearable (dew point matters more than humidity because it's relative to the city)
  • It's kinda like Cartegena's little sister....less expensive, less nightlife, less fine dining and bars, less prostitution, less heat, less touristy, but equally dirty :/
  • Even though it's on the northern coast of Colombia, you can see the sunset from all beaches because the coastline is similar to that of California due to its geographical position
  • Lots of day trips! Minca, Taganga, Tayrona, Rodadero, Gauchaca, Lost City tour and even close enough to Barranquilla for a visit.
  • Lots of girls with dyed red hair! What's going on?
  • Filthy city, trash everywhere, nothing is pleasant to look at besides the sunset and the women
  • Idea for Santa Marta: add bike rentals
  • Here is the Airbnb I stayed at for $550 per week, it's on the more expensive end. Deals to be had around $40-$50/night.

You'll want to stay within the El Centro area. It's dirty, but walkable to nightlife, beach, dining, etc. Rodadero is a shit hole. Taganga is a nice afternoon option, lots of tourists there.
Known For: the resting place of Simón Bolívar
