The undeniably spectacular Tayrona National Park, once home of the many indian tribes that peopled the vast regions that lie between the Sierra Nevada and the Caribbean, has been for decades a place of singular beauty luring visitors from all parts of the world. The park´s infrastructure, administration, was seemingly sufficient to deal with the permanent flow of tourists, scientists,... More

Stayed two nights and three days. Breathtaking scenery, awesome beaches, walks and hikes through the jungle. One of the best places I visited in Colombia, if not the best. Sure, there are little annoyances here and there but if you're the type of person to get bogged down by that stuff then what are you even traveling for? Just enjoy... More

Maybe in ten years or so I would give it another chance.. It's a pitty about the park as it could be much much better.. Went with a local friend who paid 14.500 CP$ when foreigners have to pay almost 3 times this price, CP$ 38.000!!!! And guess what! 90% of the visitors are foreigners. What a discrimination!!!! I've travelled... More

Ok, I've been quite the selfish tripadvisor user, always taking and too lazy to give back. But after my recent trip to Tayrona, I must share. I was a female solo traveler, and was having a hard time getting a sense of what hiking/staying in Tayrona would be like (is it desolate? how equipped do I have to be? etc... More

We did an organised tour from Taganga. When we arrived at the gates to the park we were asked if we had ID. We weren't told that we needed any so a group leader used us to skip the queue and included us in his group. Therefore, I'm still unsure if you do need ID to get in! We walked... More
