Tour description

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. Recommendations: - Sunblock - Sunglasses - Hat, Cap or any element for sun protection.

Muy malo, no asistió nunca, no informó previamente que no va a ir y nunca respondió el mensaje. Desconsideración total con el turista. Hay una opción de nombre "Santa Marta Experience, colores, calles y sabores." que el guía tiene un mejor trato.
