  • Description



    We are a couple with a 18 month old baby. We love enjoying cultural spaces, good music and nature. We are recent moved to Santa Marta, we were living in Bogotá, but we love the warm wheather and the beach, Bogotá is very cold now and Santa Marta obviusly has the two things that we have mencioned (wheather and beach) at the same time so we are very happy living here

    We like to dance salsa and if you do too, we would love to show you some good salsatecas! And we would like to teach you to dance too.
    Our baby is getting ready to speak soon, therefore, we want him to get used to being around English. We want to get better English as well. We would love a native English speaker to teach us.

    Our home is a 10 minute cab ride from the historical zone of the city and the beach, if you prefer you can take a bus to get the beach as we are very close to the principal road. Also, we are next to the Minca way, so you can visit that incredible place.

    In Santa Marta our guests can find beautiful places such as "Tayrona Park", "Taganga", "Minca", "Palomino", "Buritaca", some rivers and many other nice places to enjoy your stay here.

    Like a summary, we want you help us to take care our baby and teach him to start to speak, also help us to improve our english and make your own chores while all of we share, dance and enjoy around. Let us know if you want to share with us.
