For the next three days we decided to fill our days up with little trops to the surrounding beaches. First stop was El Rodadero.
El Rodadero was decribed in the book as a sort of resort beach, where lots of holiday makers go, and it didn´t disapoint on that, thats excatly how i percieved it. the sun bleating down at a massive 40 degrees we had to stay in the shade for the most part until the heavens opened and we got a bus back to Santa Marta.
El Rodaderoo is not much to look at really, but against Santa Marta is was paradise. te beach was clean and there was a much nicer feel to the place. aside from ppl coming up to us trying to sell us crap. I think i must have said no gracias about 500 times.
The next day we ventured to Taganga, a little fihing village with a well known beach that you ave to walk over a hill to get to. its a very popular plave for tourists and locals alike, as its quite a chilled out place. and yet again, very hot and alot of people trying to sell us rubbish. Again i resisted them.
Also, i got mistaken for a local aain, when i told the guy i was British through and through, he seemed to think i must have some latino blood in me. I guess i must be getting a tan afterall...
