“Elemento Mountainbiking in Minca”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

Great, great experience!!! Go for this ride on moutainbikes downhill, amazing roads and views. We also did the canyoning (jumping down waterfalls, included in the day) with a local boy as a guide, which was also amazing(ly high)!!

We chose the intermediate level trek, but they also have a biketrail for beginners (and tubing down the river is possible too). Just do this!

“Best Weather For Snow Birds ?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

Weather Review -

Escape the Cold - Florida Snow Birds. Not in this country !

-Best weather in the world !! from Santa Marta to 30 miles north.

Colombia offers one of the best places to escape the Florida invasion of Snow Birds.
After experiencing 15 years of Hawaiian weather, I can truly say Colombia is very similar.

Reason--- The Mountains, Sierra Nevadas, behind Santa Marta are high enough for snow.
The winds blow down the valleys and cools the beaches.
What more do you want .? Low humidity and high temperatures 82-85

Colombia ocean temperature is warmer then Hawaii around 84. Year round.

The best part of spending the winter in Colombia,
SNOW BIRDS Be aware Colombia is not for everyone.
No handy cap parking in this Country.

The summer months in Colombia are best in the mountains. Warm days and cool nights.

“Arrive in Santa Marta but stay for a while in Rodadero”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

I have travelled quite a bit in my time, retired 5 years ago.
But the best place I´ve found so far (I will be going to Ecuador in March) is a peaceful and attractive spot just down the road from Santa Marta called Rodadero.

A great beach, cheap food, especially the seafood, great diving and snotrkelling...best laid back place I have stayed at for a long time. Good jumping off spot to Ciudad Perdida (a 6 day trek through the jungle to the "Lost City") and Parque Tayrona, not to be missed.
I much preferred Rodadero to it·s sister city down the coast, Taganga....
