A beautiful travel photo of Taganga, a small fishing village located near Santa Marta, Colombia. The town is growing with tourism quickly and it is becoming difficult to find cheap lodging. Tucked away in the south corner of the town there is a path leading up and over the mountain side where one can access Playa Grande. This is the area where everyone goes to swim, snorkel and enjoy fried trucha at one of the many restaurants near the shore. Read our resources on Colombia travel.
