We we advised by Colombian friends to stay here, and they were so right! When you get to Arrecifes turn inwards (away from the camping site by the beach) and 10 minutes later you will find an ample and gorgeous camping site surrounded by palm trees and for HALF THE PRICE! You have a lot of space between tents, unlike... More

We had been recommended this campsite over others by friends and we are glad we took their advise. The price of the camping was far cheaper than any of the others and and they had clean showers and toilets. The man who showed us to our hammock was really friendly and made us feel welcome. At night, its wonderful listening... More

The scenery and the beaches are indeed beautiful, the hike is challenging and presents beautiful views, and maybe if we had one of the four spots in the hut on the top of the hill, our experience would have been a bit different, but overall we were very disappointed in this site. -It was extremely crowded (we were there in...

After a somewhat stressful experience with Reception - we were behind people who had a voucher with confirmed booking for a cabin, but none were available - the welcome was warm. We used both tents and hammocks. Neither was new or spotless, but clean enough to use. The site is simple, but showers are excellent and toilets function (bring your... More

This is by far the busiest and most touristy of the campsites in the national park. It's also one of the few campsites with has a swimmable beach which is why we ended up here and also probably explains why it gets so busy. It's a bit of a hike from the entrance to the park but the beach is... More

Lovely campsite. Lots of space. Decent food. Good value. Clean toilets & outdoor showers. Would recommend - if you don't want to stay at Cabo San Juan (which has a better beach but is a much further walk & the campsite looked really busy!). Don Pedro is in Arricefes (you can't swim there) but its about a 20 min walk... More

We had wanted to spend some time in Tayrona Park for the end of our trip in Colombia in May 2013. Don Pedro had been recommended ( LP ? ), and because my better half's back is a bit fragile the idea of sleeping in a hammock , or even in a tent, was not attractive, so we had somebody... More

It's a bit of a hike to get here but it is one of the nicer beaches and good for swimming so probably worth it and you really couldn't ask for a nicer view. The facilities are not fantastic. Showers are outdoors and there is no paper so make sure you bring your own. We stayed in the hammock hut... More

The location of this campingplace is amazing. Beautifull beach, palmtrees, seaview from the camping. It's great. Quite expensive when you compare it to other campsites but definately worth it because of the location. For me there was one big minus: my two days old flipflops where stolen by a guy who worked on the camping. My bf and me were... More
