So I realized that I was a bit behind on my blog and thought I´d catch up a bit. We returned to Tacanga on Saturday from the Lost City. Our whole Lost City group went out dancing Saturday night then swimming at like 4 am. haha On Sunday we chilled on hammocks in Tacanga just catching up on some rest.
On Monday, the two Danes and I went to Tayrona! Steve wanted to stay in Santa Marta for a few days so we left for Tayrona early and he met up with us on Tuesday. Tayrona is a national park known for its jungles and awesome carribbean beaches. Normally you have to take 2 buses into Tayrona then walk 2 hours to get to the camping areas but we got a private cabana right on the water. We all wanted to go diving and after chatting with the lady that owns the diving store she decided to let us borrow her cabana for 3 days! She lent us hammocks, a grill including coal and gasoline, and provided transportation there and back by dive boat. We brought food with us and kind of camped out. It was super great! Mads was taking his Open Water Diving course so we was diving Mon, Tues, and Wed and Anders and I joined him on Tues. I saw turtles, huge lobsters, and eels! I also did a lot of snorkeling and just hanging out on our hammocks. The sunsets were gorgeous. It was so nice of them to let us stay there!
Loved Tayrona but we were running out of food so left this afternoon and will be heading to Cartagena tonight. Cartagena is described as a romantic and historic city known for its beaches and night life. :)
