sunset cafe: a stroll on the promenade is free
Santa Marta has its share of pubs and I imagine a few clubs as well. This is after all a beach tourist town and people, especially Colombians love to party when they are on vacation. We saw quite a few people sitting out on the waterfront enjoying the ocean breeze and the ocean view after the town cooled down in the early evening. But we preferred to have our beer at our little cerviche place that though it was oozing local atmosphere had no view whatsoever. So, when we finished up there, we would just stroll along the promenade and take in the same breezes as the cafe crowd but for free. We caught a few sunsets, one in particular that was stunning.

The Beach: Vallenato Groups on the Beach
At night in the Rodadero most people get beers and bottles of liquor and hit the beach. There are tons of performers down the beach and they are willing to play numerous songs for just a little bit of money. It is very fun!!!
