Taganga , Colombia

Non diver - Private acc. (5 days / 4 nights. Incl. N/A dives)

The diving
Experience Taganga, where Colombia meets the Caribbean, and enjoy diving in the marine protected area of Tayrona National Park.

Nearly all dive sites in this area are located in the national park, only a few minutes away by boat. Due to the sandy and rocky grounds you will see different corals than normally found in the Caribbean and there is a guarantee schools of colorful reef fish will accompany on your dives – even dolphins and turtles if you are lucky.  
The 22 dive sites within Tayrona National Park combines pinnacles of coral reef, sunken ships, caves, and a variety of marine ecosystems. The sites offer diving for everyone, beginner or professional, with both shallow and calm sites but also sites great for deep and drift diving due to strong currents in some areas. It’s the perfect place to challenge yourself and your diving skills.

On top of the supreme diving, Taganga is also the gateway to the famous Lost City Trek, beautiful waterfalls and will probably have you stay longer than planned with its contagious beach village vibe.

Location
Taganga is an old fishing village located just 15 minutes from the big bustling Santa Marta. It is known to be a popular destination for backpackers wishing to stay close to the water, have a couple of drinks and dive in a relaxed atmosphere (of course not in that order). The main road along the beach, is filled with fishermen and local kids playing football during the day. In the evening, when the temperature drops, the restaurants, cafés and beach front attracts divers, hikers and backpackers alike. The many activities around Taganga and Tayrona National Park will keep you busy for days and are also the reason why many travelers end up extending their stay in this area of Colombia.

Your Hostel
La Casa Felipe is your cozy home during your stay. This colourful little pearl has great communal areas, is filled with plenty of hammocks to hang out in and it is located just a five minute walk from the beach and the dive center. It is super clean and cozy, with the friendliest reception staff, who are happy to help you plan your onward travels, or trekking in Tayrona! If you prefer to cook your own food, there is a great communal kitchen. A landry service and free WIFI. The French and Colombian couple that owns this cool little hostel in taganga, offers tasty breakfast options and afternoon/evening meals at low cost.

Your room - Private accommodation
A spacious private room with a double or 2 sgl. beds. A balcony with a great view over the bay. Private bathroom, fan cooling and semi-hot water for your shower (This you will realise is quite a standard for Colombia, but if you want a hot shower, you can take one at the dive center, where they will provide you towels after your diving for that exact purpose).
