Tayrona in July or somewhere less crowded?

I am thinking about going to the Caribbean coast in Colombia in early July. Tayrona National Park sounds beautiful, but I've read that it can be fairly crowded during that time of year. Are there any parts of the park that are less busy and/or more remote (maybe Playa Brava)? Are there other places in Northern Colombia that may be a better choice as far as scenic beaches? What about Rosario Islands, Gulf of Morrosquillo, or San Bernardo Islands? Thanks.

1. Re: Tayrona in July or somewhere less crowded?

Sure there are tons of off the grid beach places to visit but the biggest problem in Colombia is infrastructure; during rainy season the secondary roads become somewhat impassable. June and July is vacation time for Colombians; bad memories behind they are taking back their country and mobilizing in full force to popular beach towns. Your best bet to get away from the crowds may be to look for smaller places between the busy beach areas; researching some of the places you mentioned would be a good start…

I visited Tayrona last year late July, and Cabo San Juan campsite had actually No Vacancy. We had to walk back to Arrecifes. Loads of tourists, mainly Israelis when I was there.
