Taganga

Known as a nightlife and scuba diving spot, Taganga became a major destination for backpackers and weekend revelers about a decade ago. Thanks to the town's inexpensive lodgings and its location in a small bay protected by verdant hills, Taganga tourism continues to thrive and serves as one of the area's main sources of income. Despite a relative lack of modern infrastructure and services, a growing number of tourists take a trip to Taganga to experience small-town life and escape the crowds and urban stresses of nearby Santa Marta. Taganga is in Santa Marta District. Take a look at our Colombia trip planner to refine the details of your trip to Taganga.
