A small but amazing fishing village

This little fishing village is about a 15-minute bus-ride away from Santa Marta. But it's like a totally different world. It is one of the most peaceful, quiet, happy and nice places i have visited in the world.

The place is perfect for many things. Especially diving. I got my first PADI diving licence uin Taganga. There are several dive shops with friendly and helpful instructors and nice people. The dive sites are amazing. In the evenings you can grab a really cheap bite to eat from the street or go dancing and drinking in the local club. This is one hell of a nice place you should definately visit if you are in the neighbourhood. It will give you a chance to enjoy the real Colombian life. It is amazing there.
