Day 251 – Santa Marta, Colombia

Our first day in Santa Marta staying at a hostel run by an Aussie which was an ex drug cartel’s house. Ben had his teva sandals stolen and my $5 sunnies from the hut back on the beach in Cartagena, so on a mission to replace them for the Lost City 4 day trek tomorrow. Luckily it is sand and surf territory here and shoe shops are in abundance. Love the vintage red trucks here and only in Colombia do you find a coco loco cocktail cart with very spirit possible outside the commercial banking district. This cart sells kinky koco cocktails…hmm the mind boggles. No alcohol free zones in this country. The heat is intense in the middle of the day and our favourite thirst quencher apart from a cold cerveza is a cold limonada made from fresh limes.
