We finally arrived on the caribbean coast of colombia on the 29th of december<3
All we wanted to do during our stay in Santa Marta was go to parque tayrona, a national park with mountains, jungle and the most beautiful beaches in Colombia
There were different tours or trips to this huge park so the first day we went to the jungle part, some water falls and then where the beach meets with the ocean.
Locals selling coca leaves and natural raw cacao products
The beach was a bit cloudy but still very lovely
Back in El Rodadero for a delicious sea food dinner followed by a lovely stroll by the beach at night time. Wearing a zara skirt and for love and lemons top
On the 31st we went to a beach called playa blanca, you had to take a little boat from were we were staying for about 10 minutes but the views and ocean were amazing, we even went snorkeling for a couple hours and it was one of the most amazing things to do on new years eve.
Post snorkeling and right before we lost our go pro where we had amazing videos snorkeling :( but materialistic things come and go so we still had an amazing night!
On january first we went back to Playa Blanca alone, and hiked the beautiful cactus mountain where you had the view of two beaches at the time, we later on found out you could get to that one empty beach but only if you asked the boat drivers to take u there but you have to plan and make sure they come back for you.
The sunset going down the mountain was amazing!! I will never forget this view and exact moment.
From our room
The second to last day we ventured to parque Tayrona one more time, this time to explore the beautiful beaches, it was a long trip so we had to get up early and take a cab to Taganga from El rodadero and from there a 2 hour boat ride. The first time we went we took a bus straight from Santa Marta so we wanted to explore different ways to get there this time.
Leaving on the boat from Taganga probably the worst boat ride of my life, so jumpy and so so scary haha but the final destination was worth every second of that miserable boat ride.
The boat stopped half way to refill on gas
Even though the boat ride sucked the views were insanely beautiful
Finally arriving on the most beautiful beach I have ever been to, Cabo San Juan. You could rent a hammock on that little hut and stay the night, we had to leave back to medellin the next morning so we couldn't stay but we wish we made it there before so we could have because this place is AMAZING!!!
We went to the beach next to Cabo San Juan to wind down because I got a little sea sick and we also wanted to charge and cleanse our crystals and at this beach called Playa Nudista, you couldn't swim because it had huge waves and weird currents so we pretty much had the whole beach to ourselves so we hung out here for an hour until we got really hot and needed to swim haha
So relaxing and beautiful
Walking back towards Cabo San Juan we ran into Christians sister who had taken the bus instead of the boat so she hiked to Cabo San Juan for 2 hours and found a beautiful private beach on the way so she took us there and man it was amazing!!
We found caves, and swimmed for hours in the pool like beach.
My whole heart<3
So sad to leave but we had to catch a plane the next morning, next time we will definitely plan to come here and camp for at least a few days, we only saw one tiny bit of the park. And the locals told us that at night time you don't even need flashlights because the stars are so close and bright!!
We decided to hike back and it was a beautiful hike through beaches and jungle.
We walked passed a couple campsites and wished we could be staying there
That beautiful smile, my soulmate looking as adorable as the sunset that was going on
We hope you enjoyed the pictures, Colombia is a gorgeous country and I am so so so lucky and blessed to have been able to see from the mountains, to the beach and the jungle. This was my second time visiting my loves' beautiful home. We barely slept on this trip because we wanted to see it ALL and I don't regret it one bit hehe. Stay tune for the last part of our trip, a little romantic getaway to Christians amazingg farm.
