The bay around Taganga, Colombia. Taganga has become a massively popular backpacker grotto located between Santa Marta and Tyrona Park. For a real treat though, the mountain village of Minca is only a 45 minute ride away and boasts cooler temperatures, waterfalls, coffee plantations, and a much more pleasant crowd.
I'm building this whole backpacking trip to Colombia in my head for 2012. Ciudad Perdida is supposed to be the next Machu Picchu.
