Cartagena to Playa Blanca to Santa Marta/Parque Tayrona

I posted this in the Cartagena forum but thought I'd post here as well. Thank you!

My friends and I have 4-5 days to travel around Cartagena and we'd love to go to some nice beaches. We were thinking of going to Tolu to do the canoe ride in the Cienega, then heading to Playa Blanca, and then going to Santa Marta/Parque Tayrona. I'm still researching logistics of how to get to/from any of those places, so if anyone has recommendations for that or knows how long that would take, I'd appreciate it!

Also, are Tolu and Santa Marta worth staying in for a night each?

I've also heard it's really hard to get accommodations in Parque Tayrona in late December and I've heard very mixed reviews about the ecohabs there. Any advice?

Thanks in advance! We're just trying to figure out what's feasible for us to visit - we don't want to rush things but we'd love to see different beaches and environments.
