Can you recommend me a nice place to stay within or close to the Tayrona National Park in Santa Marta?
The only real hotel within the Tayrona Park are the ecohabs and I really enjoyed this luxury and the view of the Sea and the park. Then I wanted to to Finca Barlovento, which has been recommended by the lonely planet, but it seems that it is not available anymore. But the local tourist agency in Santa Marta, which I found on www.santamarta-hotels-tours.travel, with whom I made all my bookings, Las Pleyades, have sent me about 10 options of cabins next to the Sea and I can definitely recommend Cabin Real Dream, where we stayed at the end...
I can definitely help you with that. I'm a student there and as a freshman without a car, MARTA was my best friend. lol
Take the southbound train (or northbound, if you are leaving from Oakland CIty, Lakewood/Ft. McPherson, East Point, College Park, or Airport station) to West End station. Leave out to your left, and walk until you reach the intersection of Lee Street and Albernathy Boulevard. From there, you walk straight down Lee Street (past Capitol City Bank, West End Mall and Popeye's on the other side of the street, Church's Chicken, etc.) until you cross over I-20. From there, it is still about a block. (you'll pass a church and Morehouse School of Medicine). You should see Spelman's parking lot after you pass MSoM. Just walk up to the gate, and hope Public Safety doesn't give you a hard time. :-)
Which Marta Stop should I use to get to the Little 5 points neighborhood?
try going to www.itsmarta.com. each rail station lists the sights that are near it. and it will tell you which bus to take. my bet is that the inman park/reynoldstown station is the closest to little five points.
I assume you are talking about the train rather than the bus. Depending on where in Alpharetta you are, your closest station will be either North Springs, off of 400, or Doraville, off of P'tree Industrial
How are the girls in Barranquilla and Santa Marta Colombia? Are they friendly and easy to approach by men?
No. It is a well-known fact that they are all very suspicious, and almost all of them own and carry a weapon. It is actually almost impossible to approach them if you are of the opposite sex. I know because I have a friend who lives there so I have spent many months there.
