I have travelled quite a bit in my time, retired 5 years ago.
But the best place I´ve found so far (I will be going to Ecuador in March) is a peaceful and attractive spot just down the road from Santa Marta called Rodadero.
A great beach, cheap food, especially the seafood, great diving and snotrkelling...best laid back place I have stayed at for a long time. Good jumping off spot to Ciudad Perdida (a 6 day trek through the jungle to the "Lost City") and Parque Tayrona, not to be missed.
I much preferred Rodadero to it·s sister city down the coast, Taganga....
