Take the bus from the Mercado area of Santa Marta heading towards Palomino (1 hour 10 minutes). Ask the bus driver for El Rio in Buritaca and they should know where to drop you. 

The entrance to El Rio is 100m after the Rio Buritaca bridge (you’ll see our sign on the right), you can either walk down the dirt road for 10-15 minutes or take a trusted moto taxi from the road.

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 with our partners at Caribbean Pearl.
