Santa Marta, founded in 1525, is the oldest existing city in Colombia, and the second oldest in all of South America. Nestled like a pearl in a shell, this beautiful city lays in a rocky terrain bestowing beauties known to few people. Today, Santa Marta (described as the “The Pearl of the Americas”) is one of the most visited places in the country. Santa Marta’s heritage belongs to a diverse list of exotic natural parks, amazing beaches, marshes, ponds, and rivers. The region also plays host to one of the most beautiful natural wonders of South America, the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. This isolated mountain range runs along the Caribbean coast, boasting the highest coastal elevation on the planet. Just outside of the city lies a rainforest where with the descendants of the ancient civilizations of the region live preserving their customs and traditions.
