Another fail in our continued search for the perfect Caribbean beach. When the Lonely Planet describes somewhere as a laid-back, quiet fishing village, you can be pretty sure it will be brimming with overly boisterous tourists from all over the world, being loud and generally creating an atmosphere that is anything but laid-back and quiet. Taganga’s beach was barely visible under the piles of holidaymaking flesh, and there was a serious shortage of beds in the town, even though the hotels outnumbered the houses. After a worrying and lengthy search, we found a place to stay and spent the next few days negotiating for towel space on the pebbly beach. The sunsets were spectacular.
