Hello! I am Yube (abbreviated easy from Yubelis, my name) a 34 year old woman, with a wonderful husband and daughter. I must say about me, that I love this career as a tour guide has been an encounter with that something that was missing in my life, because after so much time in boring, monotonous, and poorly paid jobs I discovered this work that completes my life ; is that it has all the ingredients that I love to do, meet people from different parts of the world, teach about my country, see those faces of tourists excited about our landscapes and our culture, and speak in English. I do not even feel that I am working because I am simply happy with what I do, and when you are happy, it is simply reflected and spread.

About the tour

Walking in the past, it is a city tour focused on knowing a little about the history of the oldest city in Colombia: "SANTA MARTA"; which developed between Sierra Nevada and the sea, told through its old buildings, such as:

1) The Tayrona Gold Museum (Customs House), which compiles much of indigenous history and shows us the cultural legacy of this region.

2) We will also know the ancient and beautiful cathedral of Santa Marta, where the remains of the founder of this city Rodrigo de Bastidas rest.

3) The San Juan Nepomuceno Seminary; and other houses of illustrious characters of the colonial era.

We will also go deeper into the place where the last hours of Liberator Simón Bolívar are spent; Quinta de San Pedro Alejandrino, and imagine a postcard of this beautiful estate as they were in those days. (The entrance to the Quinta of San Pedro Alejandrino has a cost).

It was a great tour! Yubelia was knowleable and gave us many tips on how to spend our days in Santa Marta as well as the best dining options in the city. We enjoyed the tour and definitely recommend to others!

Great tour! Yube was able to give us further insight into the city and its history that provided some context despite being through town before. She was able to provide great recommendations and was able to do the tour in both Spanish and English as I spoke no Spanish and my girlfriends mum spoke no English.

Thanks again Yube and all the best
