Santa Marta is a medium-sized city on the Caribbean Sea.
It is far from being our favorite city in Colombia because there is not much to do and there is not much interest in visiting the downtown area. In the top of that, the beaches are not very charming and are crowded with street vendors and tourists.
But besides that, Santa Marta is the ideal place to organize different activities and excursions in the whole region. So there is a good chance that you will make a stop there for a few days.
