If you come by bus, a taxi from the bus station will cost between 10.000 and 15.000 pesos. Establish a price before you get in to avoid any misunderstanding later!
For $1200 pesos you can take a bus from the bus station direct to Taganga. If you are in the Center of Santa Marta you can walk to the "Carrera 5ª" and catch a bus “Calle 11 Taganga”. The taxi is $7.000 pesos, $8.000 at night.
From where the bus drops you coming from Santa Marta, 2 blocks past the church, walk straight ahead and take the 2nd turn to the right. Walk up the hill around 100 metres and the hostel is on your right.
