Mata de Platano

Each and every destination has its own special brand of magic. Mata de Platano is certainly no exception.

Mata de Platano Vacation Packages

The notable city of Barranquilla can be found 70 miles west of Mata de Platano.

Splash your feet in the crisp water at one of the nearby beaches. Make the journey to Buritaca Beach, 8 miles to the east, or Koralia Beach, 7 miles to the east.

For a day of tranquility, pack some supplies and head out to Concha Bay. It's located around 19 miles away from Mata de Platano.

Experience the exhilaration during game day at Eduardo Santos Stadium. It's in Santa Marta, 20 miles to the west of Mata de Platano. When the game's done, join the friendly locals in one of the nearby pubs or bars.

To take advantage of all that the region offers, be sure to visit Parque Isla Salamanca.

Calabazo lies 9 miles to the west of Mata de Platano. Take a trip there to check out Tayrona National Natural Park and Cristal Beach.

When you are ready to venture further afield, pay a visit to a regional hub. Santa Marta is around 20 miles away and is home to a variety of attractions, including Tairona Gold Museum, Parque de Los Novios and Simon Bolivar Park. Marina Santa Marta and Mundo Marino Aquarium are other options that should be high on every traveler's must-see list.

Trying out different foods is an excellent way to get to know an area. So be sure to visit some of the region's restaurants.

Be sure to look out for the most frequently used regional ingredients, such as coconut and potato.

Dine like the local residents do by trying mote de queso con hogao and ajiaco (chicken and vegetable soup).

If sampling a few bottles of the local brew is high up on your to-do list, make a beeline for the closest bar and order a round of Pilsen

If you want to have an alcohol-free drink, coffee is always a possibility.

Whether you prefer red, white or anything in between, wine is a wonderful beverage to accompany an evening meal. Try the regional favorites, Casa Grajales white and Casa Grajales red.

You've had a blast, met lots of new friends and probably given your camera a good workout. When it's time to get rid of your last Colombian pesos and bid "Hasta la vista" to Magdalena, chances are you'll already be planning a return trip!

Don't fret about being late for boarding. Just be aware that the closest airport is 25 miles to the southwest.
