Seeing the Sights in Santa Marta


According to El Tiempo, a new law in Santa Marta prohibits the entrance of buses with more than 24 people aboard into the areas of El Rodadero and Taganga. For those unlucky enough to be traveling by bus over the holidays, the first sights they will see will be of the 4 kilometer-walk from where the bus unloads them in the Gaira sector, to the balneario (seaside resort) El Rodadero, the principal tourist center of Santa Marta.

One of the region’s hotels has had to cancel at least 10 excursions, which of course, when calculating out, means less money to the region’s residents.

The story (in Spanish) is here on El Tiempo.
