A small collection of restaurants serving international food. Each block has 5-10 street vendors shoving menus in your face trying to get you to go to the place they work for.
The park is your average small Latin American plaza, if you sit down you will have a collections of street vendors in your face with in a few minutes.

As it gets dark more sinister street hustlers come out looking for victims to prey on.

Delicious food and drink options surrounding an active and interesting people watching park. We went in the afternoons and the evenings.
Safe and easy to find streets for shopping or eating around it.
Taxis from the corners made arriving and leaving very easy!

The park is not clean, and the paint of the place is in poor condition. To be a tourist place it needs more attraction to visit it in the day time.

It has a nice atmosphere during the afternoon and night. Lots of restaurants (with local and international food), cafés, and good places for ice cream and seafood. There are also several bars where you can dance or just have a drink. There are sometimes street musicians in the center of the park and its surroundings. It is a very cool place and it is very close to nice hostels.

Nice and relaxed during day and early afternoon, but turns into a hellish, noisy nitemare in evening with excessively noisy music coming from surrounding bars.

Central santa marta slowly becoming another rodadero, a pity!

This entire area is a revelation in the evening. By day Santa Marta aint all that, Rodadero much better beach and much more attractive, but after dark there is a marked change. SUPER lively with great ambiance, loads of quality restarautns, tons of street musicians and a lack of the annoying hustlers that plague the Centro Historico in the much hyped Cartagena. More Colombianos than extranjeros.

AND with the breezy conditions you never sweat, my wife got goose bumps from chill even. UNLIKE the much less pleasant climate in Cartagena.

too many beggars sales persons too noisy prices are high compared to other more nice areas in Colombia and quality is worse than average for Colombia. If you want to hang out with pot heads and co not care about enjoying privacy it is a good choice but like most of down town Santa Marta the place is worn down and dirty

Santa Marta is one of my favorite places for vacations, the last time was in April to celebrate my birthday in 2019, usually my activities there is to visit biodiverse, historical and entertainment places in general. I like it because of the environment, the people, the food and the sea.

There are many nightclubs, there are many beaches, especially there is a beach called Playa Blanca that I really like to visit, there is a tourist site called Parque Tayrona that has incredible biodiversity and also the Parque de los Novios is an excellent place to drink a good cup of coffee and read a book.
