One comment on “Santa Marta”

Santa Marta is a city full of beaches and beauty, and it would be an ideal place if it had better urban organization. All over the world neighborhoods are looked after and helped by the government according to the socio economic condition of the people who reside there, but in this city the concentration of power is so big that the local authorities only care of the places they live. We have a huge number of unpaved roads in low income areas, informal labor that blocks transportation and alleyways, and the classist development projects in the long run only benefit the elite.
