Most guide books wax lyrical about Santa Marta’s historical sights. After all, it is South America’s oldest surviving city. But step outside the urban metropolis, and you’ll find a slew of golden, palm-freckled beaches. On this tour you’ll spend a few hours relaxing on one of the prettiest sweeps of sand in the region. You’ll be driven to Rodadero, where you’ll make yourself at home at the Hotel Santa Mar, a luxury property right on the seafront. You’ll be welcomed with a drink – choose from a soft drink or a cold Colombian beer – and then you’re free to chill out by the swimming pool, or paddle in the Caribbean Sea. Later on, the coach will whisk you back to the ship. A barbecue buffet meal is also included.
