This is a great place to visit if you are looking for a get away in a secluded beach. It can get crowded but not as much as Johnny Cay in Santa Marta. The park has a laid back vibe and you can stay overnight sleeping in a hammock. We were told that a lot of animals would be seen,... More

This place was beautiful. I have never seen anything like it. The flora and fauna we experienced during our hike, as well as the views made it one of my fave things Ive done in SA. We took the bus from Calle 11 con 11. It cost 7,000 COP and took about an hour. From there we walked up to... More

Being from Australia it is honestly hard to be wowed by beaches. After trekking through the NP I haven't felt so relieved to reach the sea side as I was the day we got to Cabo San Juan. It looks as though the place has been fabricated, every rock, palm and grain of sand has an important place and it... More

This place is not a park, as we used to call theese places. It is a small "forest" with some roads leading to beach or to luxury villas/lodging for tents. So you will pay 25USD and will have access to all of it! No public restrooms, no proper trails, not guides or proper signs. Indeed it is a beautifull place,... More

Tayrona National Park was a beautiful place to be and the fish at the restaurant was fantastic. The water was warm and the bay was beautiful. However, on a 95 degree day, the two hour hike to get there was very strenuous but also beautiful. Take lots of water and prepare to rest.

We decided to just do a day trip to the parque, though got a later start than we wanted (to maximize beach time). We were going to take a taxi from the hotel to the bus station, but our cab driver offered to take us to the parque for 15,000 each (4 people). The trip took about 45 minutes and... More
