    It didn't take long for me to find out what was going on.
    It didn't take me long to find out what was going on.

    I agree that both are correct and both have the same meaning. I suppose a similar pair could be created in Spanish.

    No me tomó mucho tiempo descubrir qué estaba pasando.
    No tardé [mucho] en descubrir qué estaba pasando.
