Located one block from La Brisa Loca, this park is the main square of Santa Marta where you’ll find “La Casa de la Aduana”, the oldest building in all of the Americas. Alongside beautiful colonial Spanish architecture is a colorful array of other intriguing buildings, including the public library. Juan Valdez, next to ‘La Casa de la Aduana’, is a great place to sample some Colombian brew (iced coffee, anyone?) and relax in the shaded garden-like oasis. Opposite the coffee house, is the expansive brick square and green space that often houses public events such as free outdoor concerts and the Santa Marta 10K (in May). On any given day, you can stroll through the park, relax on one of the benches, and simply enjoy a little down time in the city.
