Great food, lovely setting

This is definitely the area to head in the evening for a good meal. Highly recommend a visit to the ice cream shop which is run by an expat Italian.

A quiet oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the busy market area which is just around the corner. Plenty of park benches to stop and relax on and watch the world go by with a mix between sun and shade which is a bonus. A pleasant little stop to sit and watch the world

Nice colonial square with cozy restaurants and bars. All interesting stuff in Santa Marta is close by to the Parque de los Novios with the exception of the Finca Alejandrina on the outskirts of the city.

Its a nice square but small. There are some restaurants and bars around. It didnt have the same feel as the parks in cartagena but its nice for a couple of hours

My hotel was located just 2 blocks from the parque. and i can say i was very lucky to be that close. My wife birthday was the day i arrive there so asking for recommendations they told about this park. Lots of different options to go and eat and party. We went to Donde chucho restaurant with a poor service... More

This park comes alive at night and really is a place for lovers. There are lots of young people hanging out and enjoying themselves. The bars at the end of the park have tables outside and its a great place to spend an evening drinking aguardiente and watching the world go by.

Great ambiance, good places to hang out for a drink or to eat. The area is being gentrified and gives one the opportunity to sense what charm Santa Marta once had.
