Getting Here

Adventure, relaxation y mas


The easiest way to get to The Cantamar is to take a taxi to Calle 20b #1-13 in El Rodadero. We are the closest backpacker's hostel to the Santa Marta airport, only 8 minutes by car. The taxi should cost you a flat fee of 27,000 pesos or just under $6 USD.  


If you are arriving from Cartagena, we reccommend you take a bus with either the Marsol or Berlinas bus lines. Ask the driver to drop you at their respective Rodadero stop. From there, it's just a quick taxi away or some people prefer to walk.  If you are arriving on foot, take Calle 21 all the way to the beach.
