While not as visited as Cartagena, Santa Marta is a laidback city with a lot of heart. Many visitors pass it on their way to Tayrona National Park or other parts of the coast, but the city has a true locals feel that shouldn't be missed given its historical importance. Founded in 1525, it was the first Spanish settlement in Colombia and the oldest surviving city in the country. Stroll through the lovely Parque de los Novios, but beware: it gets insanely hot during the day.
