Turquoise water and beach shack at Cabo San Juan del Guia in Tayrona National Park in Colombia

Located in Northern Colombia, by the Caribbean Sea and the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountains, Santa Marta is home to Spanish Colonial buildings and modern, luxury beach front apartments – showing a great contrast between the past and future.

Take the opportunity to visit the white-washed cathedral, claimed to be the Colombia’s oldest church. This fantastic building, which reflects a number of architectural styles, was the burial site of Simón Bolívar until 1942, and holds the ashes of the town’s founder Rodrigo de Bastidas.

Long sandy beaches, the array of architectural highlights and equal amounts of sun and rum make Santa Marta a great place to explore or relax. For a little bit of adventure, head towards the tropical Tayrona Park where you can watch fascinating wildlife including iguanas, red woodpeckers, monkeys and even jaguars in their true natural habitat.
