Directions to Salamanca Island Park
The protected area has been called Via Parque because through this area runs the road from Santa Marta to Barranquilla. It was declared a National Park because of its natural, economic and cultural characteristics, which deserve to be protected. Salamanca Island is actually a group of small islands separated by narrow channels formed in the Pleistocene by sediment buildup of the Magdalena river, whose height does not exceed 6 meters above sea level. These islands form a natural barrier that separates Cienaga Grande from Santa Marta in the Caribbean Sea, but keeping the water exchange. The new ecotourism program in the Salamanca Island Road Park Road is open; the visits must be pre-booked at least 1 day in advance. www.parquesalamanca.org
Hiking is permitted only with a guide for preserving the mangrove swamp forest conditions.
