Hotel Mare Mar, Santa Marta, Colombia (October 2020 - 1 night). Hotel Mare Mar is the nearest hotel to Santa Marta Airport, but it ain't flash and not worth the $16USD I paid! Wifi wasn't great, air conditioner remote didn't work, tv did, bathroom stunk and the shower had a nasty brown stain on the floor (what was it?). The bed however was great for me, super hard mattress, good for my back. The restaurants outside serve the typical bad coastal food - carne, pollo, pescado. Yeah I know, meat, chicken or fish. But, meat what? Chicken what? Fish what? Nothing, just fry it dry, put a pile of dry white rice beside it, a tiny salad of tomato and onion and 2 patacones. The soup, salad and patacones I ate, most the rest of it I didn't, like I never do. Dear Colombia, please learn to cook.
