To get to Taganga we suggest two options:
Take a taxi. The price of this will vary depending on the place of the city in which you are. Currently, taxis in Santa Marta have a meter, so you can be sure that they are charging the fare. Generally the minimum drive* is $ 10,000 COP.
If you want to save more money and you like to explore and get to know the public transports of the cities you visit you can take a bus. The board in front of the bus should say K11 – TAGANGA, which are the ones that really arrive near the beach. The value* of these is $ 1,800 COP (Monday to Saturday) and $ 1,850 COP (Sundays and holidays).

Although it seems obvious, many people wonder what to do in Taganga, in addition to relaxing and taking a refreshing swim in the calm waters of this beach.
At the end, everything will depend on your budget and if you travel alone or accompanied. If you only want to tan, you can stay at the edge of the beach. Remember that:
Although your intention is to tan, you should not expose yourself too much, as it can be harmful to your health!
On the other hand, if you plan to stay all day in Taganga there are good restaurants where you can enjoy a typical lunch of the region. Some of those restaurants have hammocks so you can relax even more; and why not, take a little nap.
In the same way you can rent floats, kayaks or take boat trips. Check your budget and the security of what you are going to purchase.
There will always be vendors walking on the beach offering you snacks or souvenirs to take to your loved ones.
