One should try to get there early because lines for buying tickets to get into the park can be very long. It took us about 2.5 hours to get tickets! The hike through Tayorna national park is beautiful and we loved the breaks we took along the beaches. I wish we had planned better and arrived sooner, so that we... More

Really the worst thing that happened to me on the trip, ruined my stay in Taganga. To start with the sold as a fake turistic package. We were charged a large sum for a package that included transportation in a "comfortable" bus to Tayrona at 6 in the morning, and a reserve at Cape San Juan for one night. I... More

It made our vacation. Was so hard but was worth every step. The hike was for 5 days. We used Expotur. Half of the enjoyment was the hike and talking to the indigenous people of the land, the other is seeing the Lost City itself. This tour is only for the well motivated. Not easy but well worth it.

Sleeping in Hammocks, power outages, rain,speedboat to Taganga. Eco reserve Minca was worth a day trip.

This park is amazing and worth every cent in the entrance fee and every step on the walk. It is magical and magnificent. You can't swim in most of the beaches, which is a bummer, but it is still amazing. Recommend 2 nights, 1 at least. Hike to where you want to stay, and spend the rest of the day... More

Very inefficient inflow and outflow. Colombia really shows a lack of common sense on this one. They actually make a photo copy of EVERY PERSON ENTERING THE PARK. So be prepared to wait. There were only about 25 people in line when I arrived (I was lucky) and it still took over 30 minutes. Then you wait for the bus...sigh.... More

It used to be much more exotic a few years ago before being managed by Aviatur. It used to be absolutely unique but it's still amazing...

If traveling to Santa Marta or around that area is a "must to"go to Tayrona Natinonal Park. As easy as taking the bus to the entrance "el Zaino" and hike around the area to get to the different beaches. I recommend "Cabo San Juan Del Guia" Bring a lot repellent and sunblock.

A fabulous well informed and educated guide took us on a 2-hour hike to the farther beach areas through a stunning park. We heard howler monkeys on the return trip and got to swim at a beautiful beach edged by jungle plants and dotted with huge smooth boulders.
