Ostras El Juancho - Restaurant Santa Marta - Colombia

One evening I told the folks at the hotel, “Gee, I have such a craving for seafood.” They looked at each other and immediately said, “Donde Juancho.” (It’s really called Ostras El Juancho.) For more than 35 years this has been the most trusted place to get a seafood cocktail off the street. Choose shrimp, octopus, conch, oysters and manta ray—or a mixture of seafood—in any size you wish. If the benches along the wall are full (as they usually are), just take your cup over to the seawall and watch the sun set. Serves daily 9 a.m.-9 p.m. (except on New Year's Day).


Carrera 1, between Calles 22 and 23, just past the Monumento a los Taironas (also called Los Indios).
