Day 1
Get picked up from your hotel at 4:00 am and begin the journey to Santa Marta. Enjoy a breakfast of local fruits before heading to the Taganga Viewpoint. Here, admire panoramic views of the fishing village of Taganga. Afterwards, take a boat to Playa Cristal where you can make use of the sundecks, hammocks and other amenities of the beach.
