Toronto to Houston to Bogota to Santa Marta....
Finally another vacation! It had been a long time coming!
Rich and I left Toronto in the afternoon on Aug 1st, and started our Colombian adventure. But first we had to change planes in Houston, and then again in Bogota, to reach our destination on Santa Marta on Colombia's Caribbean coast.
After hearing reports that Santa Marta is a "hole" we decided to spend our first night in the fishing village of Taganga, just north of Santa Marta. Taganga is an up and coming backpacker destination. Its quickly filling with hostals, and had become a favourite destination for Israeli service men and women on leave. It has a decent beach, 2/3 of which is filled with small, colourful fishing boats. The other 1/3 is beach for tourists. We stayed at Casa Holanda, which was a nice little hostal off the main road and a good spot to spend our first night. We watched the sunset over the beach with Colombian beer called "Aguila" which was very refreshing in the tropical heat and humidity.

This is what most of the roads look like in the town. Aside from the beachfront street, Taganga's roads are not in the best condition!
