  • Nice beach, not Caribbean, but a diversion if you're in Santa Marta, if you have a free afternoon and just want to get away from the town beach. In fact the beach of Taganga is located a few kilometers from the urban area of Santa Marta, you can reach it by taking (for a few euros) one of the many buses that cross the great avenues of the city. Around the beach thrive many activities, shops, restaurants, bars, you can also choose to spend the night and return to Santa Marta by taxi, after dark

  • Taganaga beach. Very dirty because it is full of boats. Also not cleaned it. It is not worth to go. Dispensable
