The answer is of course, “That Depends…” Read our beach guide to Santa Marta to better understand the different options… Colombia’s Caribbean coast is blessed with hundreds of kilometres of pristine beaches, many of them untouched and barely visited. Santa Marta is without a doubt the best location in Colombia to visit exquisite beaches and many of our guests at Hotel Boutique Casa Carolina tell us they have encountered the most beautiful beaches in the world in and around Santa Marta’s Parque Tayrona. The Exclusive Option – Private boat from the International Marina of Santa Marta to Parque Tayrona The ultimate way to enjoy the Parque Tayrona is by chartering a private yacht for your group and enjoying the exclusivity of visiting deserted virgin beaches and touring the dramatic coastline by sea. In the windy season (November to July), the trip can be pretty exciting with the boat skipping over crested waves and flying fish landing on deck. Private boats operate from Taganga and from the Marina in the Centro Historico. A typical trip costs around 2-3 million pesos (1,000-1,500 USD) for the day, with capacity for around 20 passengers. Not the cheapest way to visit the beach, but truly unforgettable. The Go It Alone Option – Bus or taxi and hike or donkey into the Parque Tayrona Most visitors to the Parque Tayrona catch a taxi or bus to the Canaveral entrance (costing 80,000 pesos by taxi or 10,000 pesos per person by bus) and walk...
