About Santa Marta

Santa Marta, the oldest city in Colombia, is a colorful destination nestled between lush jungles and the azure waters of the Caribbean Sea. Santa Marta cruises allow visitors to embark on shore excursions to nearby waterfalls, Tayrona National Park or to kick back and relax on splendid beaches.

View brightly hued Spanish Colonial architecture on a tour around town, or head farther afield and see how one of Colombia's most well-known exports -- coffee -- is harvested. In town, tasty Colombian dishes abound, including fresh fish tacos, coconut rice and ceviche.
