Location Information

Located in the most exclusive suburb of Santa Marta between the two main avenues leading in and out of town. It's peaceful and quiet but only moments from the main avenues where you can find bars, clubs and restaurants, supermarkets, drugstores and health clinics.

Only a 5 minute bus or taxi ride into the city centre. The buses heading to Parque Tayrona and Taganga all pass by the end of the street and whisk you away to beautiful beaches.
