Food Scene
One of the best spots for breakfasts, but also very good option for diner or supper. Arepa's are the specialties in terms of food, but they have a great range of juices and smoothies to choose from. It also has a couple of good vegetarian options on the menu. Opens as 8.00 every day.

Best spot for breakfast, outside of the tourist scene. It opens at 6.30 every day (closes at 11.00), and serves local dishes like cayeye (green banana puré, a specialty of Santa Marta's gastronomy). Their main business is oranges and orange juices, so they don't serve coffee.

Probably the best restaurant downtown, surely the most expensive. The decor might be a bit tacky, the playlist kind of poor, but the dishes are pretty special. Peruvian cuisine, our favorite dish is the Causa Mixta and the Fish Croquetas.

Drinks & Nightlife
