    Good location near a huge shopping mall (with food court!) and Simon Bolivar's Museum. A well-run hostel with very pleasant bar area. The rooms have character, each being named and themed after a country - we had Ireland, a private double with fan. The shared bathrooms are OK.
    The buffet breakfast is tasty and good value, the other meals from the restaurant seem a bit over-priced. Staff are friendly and very patient. We enjoyed day trips through the hostel to Minca and Bahia Concha.

    great value for money, this is a chilled hostel with EVERYTHING you need. The rooms are spacious and away from the bar. At night, I barely heard the people drinking and partying up late. Its not a party hostel, but social. The outdoor kitchen and common area is great to make new friends, the internet is great and most of the staff friendly! The Italian restaurant is fab on site and Exito supermarket 3 block away if you want to cook. I have not a complaint about the dreamer. A better place to get to Parque Tayrona and Taganga... Loved it here!

    We made it! Paradise! We spent yesterday morning catching up on anything we needed Wi-Fi to do in Santa Marta. Emails, the kids' math, banking, etc., all completed. We headed to the bank machine to stalk up on cash, as there are no ATMs or banks anywhere near Palomino. We also loaded up on groceries, unsure of what provisions …

    We made it to Santa Marta! After more than eleven hours, we arrived, grabbed a taxi to Dreamer Hostal, put our bags down, checked out the pool, and immediately realized that we needed to replace Ari's lost bathing suit since we are on the Caribbean coast and having lost his, has been without one for a while. We walked five minutes to …

    Checkout followed a nice long lie in in our final night of luxury in the black sheep hostel. Needing to call Avianca again, I received the strange response that our flight had been cancelled as we had not called them yet. This was ridiculous since Dan had called the previous day so I passed the receiver to Dan to confirm and he reversed the …

    Santa Marta is where Colombians go when they want sun on their backs, sand under their feet and rum in their glasses. It has a famous colonial past as one of the continent's oldest cities, and is where Simon Bolivar died after a heroic attempt to make Latin America one united republic.

    We visited the hacienda where Bolivar spent his last …

    We've been under the water for about 40 minutes at this stage. The colours and coral is amazing, and today the visibility is perfect. Our instructor, Santiago, has brought all his cameras and toys underwater to play with, capturing great pictures of giant eels, puffer fish, tiger fish, angel fish and yes, fish fish fish. I'm in the process of doing my Advanced Open Water course, and therefore need to complete various tasks under the water in order to get my licence. Its all a bit of ...
