Luggage and bags: While a normal suitcase will get you by in Santa Marta proper and a day pack will suffice on your guided trek of La Ciudad Perdida, to really get a full dose of Tayrona National Park, you're best off having a backpack with you. The park features miles of trails that take in one of the most scenic chunks of the coast in any hemisphere. Sure, you can day trip here, but once you pay your $17 entrance fee, you are free to wander and camp along the coast so why not?
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Santa Marta will not necessitate any special clothes as you are looking at one lovey climate but trekking gear will come in handy if you are planning on seeing La Ciudad Perdida and Tayrona National Park.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sunscreen, baby, sunscreen.
Photo Equipment: A wide angle is great for landscape photography and a zoom for wildlife, and in Santa Marta proper you can use both to get good shots of street vendors, foods, and colonial buildings.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: No need for your tent in Santa Marta but we were very glad to have ours for Tayrona National Park.
Miscellaneous: Thanks to D for making this part of the trip special, especially once she recovered from her bad tummy.
