This is a really cute park in the middle of the city. Lots of street performers and people hanging out, especially at night. It's the most happening area of the city that we saw besides the bay. Plus it's got a lot of little bars and restaurants everywhere so theres always something to see/do.

At sunset El Parque de los Novios comes alive. Take a stroll before dinner and then chose a restaurant nearby to treat yourself. In December, early January, the city parks are illuminated for Christmas and Reyes(January 5th), little ones and their parents will enjoy alike. Great gelato and ice cream parlours in the vicinity.

This is the heart of Santa Marta, the nicest place to stroll and do people watching. One of the best place on the square to relax is actually at the outside patio of the best restaurant in town: Ouzo. From the Parque de Los Novios, it is a short walk to the other 3 attractions from Santa Marta: the cathedral,... More

The process to recover downtown Santa Marta started here at Parque de los novios. It has good restaurants and bars, and my favorite time is at night when it is more crowded.

We visited during the Christmas holidays so the park was very nicely decorated with lights and such. Bustling with activity, fun street scene with some break dancers and food vendors

This square is surrounded by restaurants and bars so plenty of locals and tourists around in the evening soaking up the atmosphere. The square itself is small and not overly unique but has benches and shade for resting and is a nice enough square to stop by while in Santa Marta.

There are lots of bars and restaurants to choose from. It's the nicest part of Santa Marta, so you need to visit it. Just stroll around and hop in for a beer or two.Very lively place.

Just a small park with couple of benches and a small covered area to take photos with your girl friend.
