Once a simple fishing village on the shores of the Caribbean, Palomino has blossomed into an internationally-recognized travel destination over the past few years. Why? Put simply, Palomino is the perfect fusion of everything that is so special about the Colombian Caribbean and the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta Mountains: crystalline rivers flowing from forgotten glacial peaks through the jungle to the sea, ancient Indigenous cultures hidden deep in the forest, and stunning beaches fringed by palm trees and boutique hotels. From the beach itself it’s even possible to see the distant snow-capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada, the highest coastal mountains on earth – Palomino is the perfect representation of what is so miraculous about Colombia: from coral reefs to glaciers in just 40km!
