The fine print

Please note the following arrival instructions provided by the property:

Do not go to Minca, rather follow the instructions:

From Santa Marta and Taganga:

Take a taxi in Santa Marta going to Bonda (30 min – 10,000 pesos). Ask to get off at the Police Station or footbal field in Bonda. Here you need to go up a small road with a motorbike (15 min - 10.000 cop) to reach Carpe Diem. The whole drive is easy to find and takes roughly 50 minutes in total from Santa Marta. You can also do this trip with own transport but you need a 4x4 drive vehicle.

We can offer door-to-door services for 120.000 pesos for the whole car from any place in Santa Marta.

From Palomino or Tayrona:

Take the bus direction Santa Marta. Ask to get off at Veracruz in Bonda (this is a crossing some 20 minutes before entering Santa Marta). Go to the footbal field of Bonda from where you take the mototaxi uphill (15 min - COP 10,000).

We can offer door-to-door services from any destination at the Caribbean Coast.

Please note that the property is accessed via an unpaved road that may be unsuitable for some vehicles.
