The Tour

In the past this valley in the mountains surrounding Taganga was used as an agricultural site where cows and goats were put to fatten up on the local flora, where you could find and hunt deer and see ocelots. Today the dry tropical forest has been in decline every day by the felling of native trees like palo santo and balsa.

San Antonio Bonito Gordo forms one of the first beaches of the Tayrona National Park. It is a tropical dry forest where you can observe Palo Santo, Balsa, 3 species of cactus, and medicinal plants, among the fauna we can see snakes, spiders and many species of birds endemic to the region.

The path leading us to this route is somewhat rough since it is passed only by those Taganga who have their homes there, it lasts about 4 hours walk, 2 up and 2 down, to reach the Bay of San Antonio Bonito Gordo where we can delight our sight with a sea of calm waters and small water sources, a small area of livestock and some houses, the marine wealth of this sector is well preserved with the seagrasses helping reproduction of starfish, crabs and lobsters.

What You'll Do

Leaving from Taganga early, we will take the old path for 2 hours up to about 500 metres above sea level from where you can see the entire city of Santa Marta. From here we will begin the descent to Bonito Gordo for another 2 hours.

We will arrive at the simple home of a local fisherman, where we can leave our personal ítems, our hammocks, and where we will have a delicious lunch flavored by fire and make a detailed exploration of the area. Here you will have time to relax in the sun and snorkel in the calm waters of the bay.

After lunch we will take the path to Bahia Concha, approximately 2 hours, from where we will find our transport to take us back to Taganga.
