Day 1-2 Cartagena

1-2 days here was enough for me to explore the old town and soak in the colonial vibes. Plus if you are planning on returning here to catch a flight or bus to your next place you can always extend your stay if you want to!

Day 3-4 Santa Marta

I preferred Santa Marta to Cartagena. As beautiful as Cartagena is it is the most expensive place I’ve been to in Colombia and has a very different more touristy vibe. It is the best place to buy anything you need for the best prices just in case you forgot anything. There are also some great beaches, museums and neighboring villages to explore.

Day 6 Taganga

I haven’t written a full guide to Taganga as although I went there three times I don’t feel like I got to know the place enough to write a full guide. I have written about it in my Santa Marta Guide though and here are my accommodation recommendations.

Day 7-9 Parque Tayrona

You can’t visit the Caribbean Coast and not visit Parque Tayrona. If you have time I recommend staying 3 nights. If the thought of camping for 3 nights makes you break out in a cold sweat then stay less time of book an eco pods. Although, they are on the expensive side!

Day 10-11 Minca

Many people say just stay there for a day, but if you have the time stay longer. It’s cooler than the rest of the coast and I enjoyed escaping the heat of the beach for a few nights. There are coffee farms and waterfalls to explore so you won’t get bored! It actually reminded me a little of Guatemala which is probably why I loved it so much.

Day 12 – 13 Palomino

If you prefer a less crowded beach and more laid back beach vibes then Palomino is likely going to be somewhere you won’t want to leave! I would stay for at least 2 days here chilling on the beach and tubbing on the river!
