          Somehow the two bed room I booked for two nights was double booked, and I was the one who had to vacate for the second night. I wasn't thrilled to move to a ten bed dorm. Santa Marta was very busy at the time, otherwise I may have moved to a different hostel. Anyway, it was OK. Apart from the mix up, I can't complain really. I should say though, if you are expecting lockers, as advertised, there aren't any. They will lock valuables away under the front desk, but there are no lockers. I had a private room for another night after doing The Lost City trek. Writing this some time later I have to be honest it doesn't really stick in my mind. I think OK best describes this place. It's fine, just nothing to get excited about.

          The hostel booked me a bus ticket with Marsol from Cartagena to Santa Marta on 4th January. The terminal was too far to walk, although only a short taxi ride. The bus was really a minibus, and while more modern than the old banger buses I've ridden on here so far, no more comfortable. On the Colombian crazy bus driver scale, I give this …

          ... that was really good, and a perfect way to start our the weekend away. It was a short hour and a half flight to Santa Marta, and as soon as we got off the plane, the heat hit me. What a huge difference from Bogota to here! It’s really hot and really humid. That’s a combination I haven’t been used to since I left Cuba.

          We got a taxi to our hotel, which was pretty ...

          We decided to try Radio Burger for something to eat, they also happened to be on Happy Hour, two for one cocktails. We supped away on Margaritas while our burger orders were being prepared. Maria decided on a standard burger, the best way to decide how good the patties are...and very good they were too. David decided to try the Choriburger, it was 50% chorizo and 50% beef made into a pattie. ...

This tour left the hostel at 10pm, had an abundance of booze on board and played of course the tackiest of music! It even had a dancing pole... One guess as to who was queen of the pole? Very 'enjoyable' night which may have accidentally ended in a brothel which subsequently got raided ...
