TAGANGA BAY

Taganga is a township in the District of Santa Marta, in the Department of Magdalena (Colombia) 1 Located in the bay of the same name, is surrounded by mountains with cactus vegetation and small trees, as trupillo, and shrubs.

Access to Taganga is possible by road from the center of the city of Santa Marta. There are frequently minibuses routes ranging from Race 5 in Santa Marta to Taganga.

Characteristic and typical fishing village, Taganga is popular for its scenery and viewpoints. It has 3,000 inhabitants


Origin of the word "Taganga"

You could have two meanings, the first says that could mean "Serranía of snakes" derived from indigenous words that would boost culture are Ta-gunmy where "Ta" means hill and "Gunmy" snake or serpent. This would have a reason to hold on to the hills that surround it, abounded many animals of this species.

The second had to do with the etymology of the word indigenous where "Ta" is a starter and "Ganga" is the sea, which would place or site where it enters the sea.

This is an overview of South America

South America makes up the southern half of the Americas and a large part of Latin America. It's home to the world's longest mountain range, biggest waterfall and largest river -- even these mammoths pale in comparison to the stunning variety of life forms thriving in the rainforest.

To the northwest, off the coast of Ecuador, lie the Galapagos Islands, which are unique for hosting species not found anywhere else on earth. These were the subject of study for Charles Darwin in his theory of evolution, which he himself said will require proof in every single case.

The main languages in South America are Spanish and Portugese, which basically tells you which European countries colonized the place. The South American wars of independence took place over two decades in the early 19th century, led by Simon Bolivar of Venezuela and Jose san Martin of Argentina.

Following liberation from Portugal and Spain, South America took off into its own development, capitalizing on the rich deposits of oil, gold, copper, silver and tango musicians.

Brazil is the largest country in South America and home to one of the world's best parties, Carnaval. Have you heard of samba music? How about bossa nova? Maybe dancing for three days straight?

I can't say enough good things about South America. All the world's continents have amazing secrets and treasures laying in wait for your discovery, but in South America... just have a look at our pictures while you're waiting for online confirmation of your plane tickets to hit your inbox.
