Take the bus from the Mercado area of Santa Marta which goes towards Palomino (1 hour 10 minutes), get off in Buritaca and ask a moto taxi to take you to El Rio (3,000COP). If you ask the bus driver for El Rio, they should know where to drop you. 

Alternatively, get off the bus 100m after the Rio Buritaca bridge (you’ll see our sign on the right) and walk down the dirt road for 10-15 minutes.

Please do not arrive after dark (6pm) as it is very difficult to find transport in Buritaca at night.

We can also organise transportation to and from Santa Marta and the airport - taxis from the city cost 100,000COP, from the airport 120,000COP.
