About the Tour

The History of Santa Marta "La Fiel y Hospitalaria"

Santa Marta is considered the pearl of America, not only for the beauty of its Bay and present Biodiversity, but also for the role it played for the economy of Europe during the 16th century. The tour is structured by 4 key points within the Historic Center that reveal the history of the city:

- Customs House (Tayrona Gold Museum): Here 565 objects are exhibited of which 471 are pre-hispanic pieces, 53 ethnographic and 41 colonial objects. It is considered the first construction with architectural design in South America.

- Paseo de Bastidas: This ridge allows us to get a beautiful view of the most beautiful bay in America, decorated with monuments to the Tayronan deities that contrast with the imposing design of the International Marina of Santa Marta.

- Old Hospital San Juan de Dios: Represents charity and service to others, "Property of National Cultural Interest."

- Los Novios Park: Also called Santander Park, it is a place where different artistic and gastronomic expressions converge. This place witnessed countless passions of the past that met in this busy place.

- Santa Marta Cathedral: Considered the heart of the city, it represents the most sacred place for samaria. Here rested the remains of Liberator Simón Bolívar, The Greatest Man in America.

Excelente!!!!! Enrique nuestro guía nos pudo brindar mucha información. En menos de una hora de conocer a Enrique nos dimos cuenta que teníamos un nuevo amigo aquí en santa Marta. Enrique ama su trabajo y mi pareja y yo quedamos encantado de su trabajo, y siempre estuvo pendiente y nos trajo hasta la puerta de nuestro hotel, nos vamos encantado de santa Marta y de nuestro nuevo amigo Enrique. This tour was beyond excellent. We had a great time walking around the city and learning history about the city. Our tour guide, Enrique was very informed and very friendly. He did an excellent job informing us and taking care of us around the city. At the end of the tour, he dropped off us at our hotel to be sure that we got back safe. Very satisfactory and highly recommend.
