We are located in the Parque Nacional Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, about 15 kilometers from the Troncal del Caribe, the main road between Santa Marta and Palomino in la Guajira. Arrangements must be made for your pickup. See you soon…
First Leg . . .
From the Airport to La Aguacatera
From the airport you could catch the public bus into Santa Marta or a cab would cost 26000 Colombian pesos, about $8 or $9 dollars. You should consider spending a few days in Santa Marta which is a lovely town/city.
In Santa Marta you would want to go to the “Mercado” (Carrera 11 con Calle 9) there you could get on the bus (smaller bus) that goes to Palomino in la Guajira. On your way you will pass “La Aguacatera”, which is the entrance to to the Lost City of the Tayrona. Just tell the assistant of the driver where you are getting off when he/she comes to collect your fare which is 7000 Colombian pesos, less than $3 dollars.
Second Leg . . .
From La Aguacatera to Cinduli
From La Aguacatera you are about to enter Parque Nacional Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. From here on we would have to make a plan for your pickup. Only authorized people can enter, most of whom are visitors going to the Lost City of the Tayrona or folks who live in the region.
Two Options here . . .
Mototaxi: In La Aguacatera you will find motorbikes that could take you up to Casa de Tabla (very close to Cinduli) the small community of which we are part. They cost 30000 Colombian pesos (less than $10 dollars) and would take you and a backpack. Only for the adventurous spirit, the riders know the road like nobody else, they are licensed to operate in the Sierra Nevada.
Private 4×4: We could schedule your pickup in La Aguacatera or in Santa Marta. Price to be arranged.
