Very Windy Santa Marta, Colombia

Wind blows plastics bags uphill to get stuck in the brush.

It has been extremely windy in Santa Marta, blowing easily 30 to 40 knots at the marina for a week now. Sometimes, almost to 50 knots. Definitely not smart walking with a dog or a kid. When I was in 2015, it was so hot. This time, it is so windy. This area is notorious with strong wind in the Caribbean, especially in December, January, and February. We are looking for a good weather window to leave Santa Marta.

Very windy, note the waves in the marina and the palm tree!
