Nestled between the foothills of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta and the Caribbean Sea, this unassuming little town enjoys a perfect location.
Despite being closer to Santa Marta than Riohacha, Palomino is actually in the Guajira department. Palomino really is the perfect way to wrap up the end of your Colombia trip. Be it vast biodiversity, the remoteness, the sea, authentic accommodation options, good food and relaxation, Palomino has it all.
Palomino is slightly further away from Santa Marta than Tayrona is but well worth the extra half-hour in your transfer vehicle. We prefer the accommodation options, they are authentic, brimming with charming costeño hospitality, fresh food, cool drinks and you are right there on the beach. Unlike Tayrona, Palomino does not have a high-energy coastline with perilous undercurrents. For those that want the perfect Colombian beach destination with a chance to cool off in the sea, Palomino is the ideal choice.
