Taganga is a coastal city with a beautiful inlet ideal for scuba diving and snorkeling. We stayed the night at a cute bed and breakfast hostel and headed on our way early Saturday morning for our hike into the national park. Four of us opted to hike a harder 3 hour route into Tayrona while the other 5 chose the easier 1.5 hour hike along the coast. ...
