    Sunset Beach: admittedly a nice sunset spot

    Taganga has its share of beachfront cafes and bars to enjoy a drink while watching the sunset but they are on the other side of the street and walkway so not quite as good as actually sitting on the beach. We did not stop in but I would imagine they are pricey as we did what most people seemed to be doing and that was buying our beers at the small shops along the beachfront that specialized in doing just that. You could get a wide variety of beverages and even "hard" alcohol. One Aguila beer and a ginger ale (D tummy not perfect yet!) was 4100 COP (a little over $2) was definitely more than we were paying in Santa Marta. At any rate, it was a cheap "night out" for us and the beach was not as crowded as it might have been though not as secluded as you might want it. The sunset was gorgeous, framed perfected by swaying palms.

    Dress Code: Even in the evening it remained warm enough for t-shirts. Nice. :)

    all around the beach: sunsets

    There's plenty of nightlife in Taganga... lous music is played all night and there seem to be regular party on the beach - though the crowd is always very drunk AND very intoxicated with illegal substances. We happily gave it a miss.

    What we could not give a miss to were the wonderful sunsets that could be admired from the beach... perfect sunsets in a less than perfect place.

    Dress Code: No one cares what you wear. Do as you wish.

    El Garage: Piece of local culture

    There is just one bar/nightclub in Taganga - El Garage (yes, the name comes from its location as a former garage). The drinks are cheap, there is not admission fee, the music is great, there's plenty of room for dancing and the atmosphare is cool. This is the place to go to, if you want to experience local culture at its best. It's just a regular hang-out place for all the active people in the village.

    Dress Code: Absolutely anything from a bathing suit to a regular suit, from bare feet to dancing shoes - anything goes.
