    GREETINGS FROM: SANTA MARTA -  COLOMBIA

 


TOURISM
 IN SANTA MARTA, MAGDALENA, COLOMBIA

 Santa Marta, founded in 1525, is America's oldest city, and Colombia´s second most popular Caribbean tourist destination-after Cartagena.  Many who vacation here, or have apartments in the nearby beach community of Rodadero, are from Medellin, Bogota, and Colombia´s other major cities.  A high percentage of tourists are carefree backpackers from Israel, Holland, Denmark, Germany, France, etc.  These computer savvy and thrifty vagabonds are especially good at discovering low cost tourist "hidden gems" of the world as evidenced by recent visitor increases in family and upscale tourists. Santa Marta is safe, fun, economical and lives up to it's self promotion of: The Magic of Having Everything. 

 Arrival and local transportation options are many, inexpensive and operate at frequent intervals.  Santa Marta is served by a wide variety of hotels, rental apartments, hostiles, PLUS many good restaurants abound, with heavy menu emphasis of sea food caught fresh daily by the thousands of local fishermen, who for generations, have called this area: "home".  

 Local bus service is frequent, cheap (50 cents u.s), and will efficiently transport you ALL OVER, including nearby towns and attractions.  Typically, the buses used are vans with seating for 14. Taxis are plentiful, and in-expensive. They are not metered so be sure to arrive at the fair BEFORE you enter the cab.

 Crystal clear waters, miles of sandy white beach's, great off-shore reefs and diving, PLUS Historical and Ecological treasures to be discovered, provide satisfied tourists with many reasons to return again and again.
