This is a bakery with connected restaurant and hotel. You can easily spend a full day here: Bella Suiza offers breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between for reasonable prices. As there is no air conditioning it can get a bit hot. The WiFi is good though, and there are sufficient power sockets available. As Colombians seem to love loud music it can get noisy. But a secret tip: all the way in the back is a table away from the noise. Bella Suiza is open every day, including holidays. All in all a reliable spot in Santa Marta.
This newly opened wifi café is the first and only one of it’s kind that I found in Santa Marta. In the 2 months that I was staying in this city I did not find a good spot to work, so I was very happy when they opened last summer. Café Caribe offers good coffee, smoothies and sandwiches. And, extra important in Santa Marta: they have airconditioning! This is absolutely the best spot in the center of Santa Marta to get some work done.
The quality of the WiFi is strong, I could do my work without any problems. I did not try video calls, someone else should test that. There is one table with access to a power plug (in the corner next to the painting).
Café Caribe is opened from Monday to Thursday from 8AM to 9:30PM and on Friday and Saturday from 9AM to 12PM. They are closed on Sunday.
