Evoking a small-city feel with fewer tourists compared to Cartagena, Santa Marta’s sights and heritage are not to be missed. Set off from Cartagena, stopping in cosmopolitan Barranquilla, one of Columbia’s largest cities. Take in the panoramic cityscape and unique architecture before traveling on to Santa Marta.|
Upon arrival, head to La Quinta de San Pedro Alejandrino—the 17th-century ranch home where Spanish America’s “Liberator,” Simón Bolivar spent his last days. Wander the estate touring his charming house and visiting the neoclassical memorial built in his honor.
Afterward, journey into the city to view some of its most impressive sights. Experience the local blend of the historic and contemporary. Stop at picturesque El Rodadero—a popular vacation stop for Columbian families along the coast. Here, an included lunch and time on your own for exploration are all yours before heading back to Cartagena.
