After a very bumby 5 hour bus trip we arrived in Taganga which is north of Cartagena. Taganga is a small fishing town (population 5000) on the coast. There is only about 4 tarseal roads the rest are gravel with several pot holes!! We set out for some lunch on the beach and just by walking from the hostel to the beach we saw ...
... gopro to the phone will have to happen now.

The beach is not that pretty and its bleedin hottttt but it is the place to lose yourself by partying and visiting the nearby gorgeous beaches. You do get sucked into the Taganga way of life, walking around the little dusty roads barefoot and carefree.
It was so good to finally catch up with the girls and the French dude was also arriving ...
