Minca - in the mountains behind Santa Marta. Nice walking trails, birds, waterfalls and great views.

La Guajira - minimum 2 day trip; it is where the desert meets the oceans and the very interesting Wayuu people.

Both of these are far far better than Taganga which is a hole.

You can also decide to take another hostel on the way to Palomino.

El Rio and the Journey hostel have a good reputation ;)
