Throw yourself into the dancing culture of Santa Marta city on this tour that’s especially suited to anyone with a passion for music and dance. You’ll learn about some of Colombia’s different musical styles, especially the traditional folk music of Vallenato. It’s recognised for its jaunty accordions and energetic drum playing. The tour, exclusive to Marella Cruises, includes a live Vallenato show followed by a presentation of the instruments that you can then learn to play yourself. Next, enjoy some traditional Caribbean food. We’re talking fried green banana pancakes with a savoury topping, washed down with a fresh tropical fruit cocktail. And before heading back to the ship, you’ll visit the Gold Museum, where artefacts date back to pre-Columbian indigenous cultures.
