We will meet in Playa Rodadero, a beach town 5km (10 min drive) south of the center of Santa Marta. After a tinto, we'll walk to the trailhead and begin our 30 minute hike to Inca Inca beach, which offers stunning views of Rodadero, Sierra Nevada mountains and of the quiet Inca Inca beach that is only reached by hiking. After we arrive we can take time to relax or go for a swim. Then, we will head to Playa Blanca beach and begin a short 10 minute but steep climb. At the top of this hill we will enjoy the most amazing panoramic view of Santa Marta Bay, Playa Blanca turquoise waters and the beach town of Rodadero. The view is stunning and is the highlight of this area. Because of its location, this viewpoint is unparalleled to any other beach in the region. Once we are ready to go down, we can take some time to enjoy the white sands of Playa Blanca and go for a swim or enjoy a freshly caught fried fish on the beach. Alternatively, we can head back over to Rodadero and eat at the best seafood restaurant in all of Santa Marta.

Having visited Colombia more than 10 times for months at a time since 2003, I have discovered almost everything it has to offer. When someone asks, "do you prefer mountains or beaches?" My response, "both, that's why I live in Santa Marta".
