Palm Tree on the beach

Palomino is a small town on the side of a highway around two hours east of Santa Marta on the Caribbean Coast of Colombia. The town itself is little more than rows of houses with a few roadside corner stores and food stands catering to long distance truckers. However, after a twenty minute walk from the highway to the coast, there is a beautiful almost deserted beach. It is truly a gem of Colombia. But you better get there fast, as “eco” hostels are going up all over the place and the hippies have already moved in. The age of backpackerdom then mass tourism is drawing near for Palomino.

All photos were taken by Wade Shepard of VagabondJourney.com in 2010.
