Several routes connect the city with other cities on the coast and in the interior of the country.
Santa Marta’s airport does not take international flights. Yet, the city is just a short distance away from the air terminals in Barranquilla and Cartagena, which can serve as a point of entry for visitors arriving from abroad.
It is possible to fly to Santa Marta from the Bogotá and Medellín airports, both of which offer frequent connecting flights.
Travel to the main inner coastal cities is done through the Variante Gaira Transport Terminal. Santa Marta is situated at a very short distance from Barranquilla and Cartagena, two of the main continental ports on the Caribbean Sea.
The roads between the three cities are excellent, as well as the roads that go inland.
Due to city’s importance as a regional development pole, maintenance is very good.
