Clint MacNichol takes the road less travelled to explore some of yoga’s hidden highlights in the remote north of Colombia

Northern Colombia possesses some of the most diverse environments anywhere in the world. Choose a direction from the city of Santa Marta and the visitor will soon chance upon a new climate, terrain or experience — a mere 25 steps outside the airport doors from the arrivals area you’ll find the Caribbean Sea and the beach.

Santa Marta is a city experiencing growing pains due to a rise in visitors and those fleeing Venezuela (a 5-6 hour drive from the border). A city of approximately 500,000, still rough around the edges, acts as the main rest stop and launching area for the real reason most come this way…nature. Tourists will find all the necessary means of travel to venture further in any direction.

South of the airport brings you to the small community of Ciénaga where freshwater and saltwater join forces to create an ecosystem reminiscent of the everglades in Florida. Ciénaga is experiencing an environmental resurgence. Once in a state of decline due to poor highway planning that cut off the sea from the rivers, adjustments are seeing new life return. It is safe to say, visitors to Colombia will not make a journey to this area specifically, perhaps only noticing it from the window of a bus to Barranquilla. The majority of adventure seekers and nature lovers make their way further north to the communities of Rodadero, Santa Marta and Taganga.
