When pondering a Caribbean vacation, Colombia has become a desirable destination for its stately mountains, stunning beaches, ancient ruins, and verdant mangrove forests. The city of Santa Marta specifically promises a wide array of activities sure to add an unforgettable page to your travel story. Our growing selection of Santa Marta vacation rentals ensure comfort, convenience, and privacy for everyone.
The city of Santa Marta is located on the northern coast of Colombia in the Magdelena Department. It serves as the gateway to the Lost City of Teyuna in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountains and Tayrona National Natural Park.
Tayrona National Natural Park is a 12-square mile protected region that offers hiking and horseback riding through the jungle with challenging inclines and narrow chasms. Make your way to splendid stretches of sand, which offer idyllic spots to recline and relax after your exhilarating jungle adventure!
Explore reefs teeming with life in the sparkling Caribbean waters via snorkeling, then head to a nearby café for a taste of multi-cultural cuisine followed by drinks and dancing at the numerous discos and bars in Parque de Los Novios.
For the true adventurer, an absolute must-see attraction is the Lost City, accessible only by a rigorous six-day, 32-mile hike. This pre-Colombian town promises a fascinating glimpse at what life was like before Machu Picchu was even constructed.
If a Caribbean vacation is calling your name, consider making one of our Santa Marta vacation rentals your home base. You won't regret it!
