Awesome fun things to do along the Carribean Coast in Colombia (other than Cuidad Perdida hike)?

So my boyfriend and I are spending two weeks in Colombia in late February/early March. We'll have 2 days in Bogotá at the beginning and then fly to Santa Marta for the rest of the trip. I looked into the Cuidad Perdida hike, but I think it will eat too much time (6 days is a lot, when you only have 11, and my boyfriend is not as into *long* hikes as I am) so I'm looking for some shorter (1 or 2 days) hiking options and just other things to do. Considering taking a bus to Cartagena for a bit, and definitely want some time in Tayrona National Park. Do Mefites familiar with that part of the world have any suggestions for excursions and activities accessible from Santa Marta?
The only caveat is that we woudn't want to spend more than 2 hours on a bus to travel inbetween places.
Also, while I'm less sure of the safety/accessability of this option, given the current situation in some parts of Colombia, we both have our motorcycle licenses and would happily travel around the coast by rented motorbike and/or scooter is that were a plausible possibility. I couldn't find any accounts of people doing this, however.
Any other random suggestions about travelling there are welcome, too. :-)
