My friend and I stayed at La Tortuga for around 10 nights, between trips to the near by Parque Nacional Tayrona and diving trips. The staff were great and always let us leave our bags behind on the different trips. We stayed in a four bed dorm on the second level which had a nice view and lovely breeze. The showers are cold (which is fine because of the heat) and the room was cleaned every day. They have a rooftop bar which seemed to only open on weekends, which is fine, you can buy beers downstairs and take them up the top to watch the beautiful sunset, take in the amazing view or see the nightly thunder storm roll in. They also have a small pool downstairs, always clean and nice for a quick dip to cool off in. I would highly recommend La Tortuga and Taganga - it was one of many highlights of my two months in Colombia.
If you're looking to do some diving in Taganga I would definitely recommend Escuela de Buceo Vida Marina. I did both my PADI open water and PADI advanced with them. They were professional, fun and the equipment was in perfect condition. They haven't registered on Trip Advisor yet so unfortunately I can't review them yet, but they great!! Highly recommended! Thanks Santiago, Fabio and Junior!
