There are also some Vans that take you to Santa Marta, they go through a better road, shorter trip. You find them in Crespo neighborhood. The main ones are Marsol and Invertour but there are other godo ones

Just read in another forum that Marsol travels directly to Tayrona in a door to door service. The price they gave there is of 65,000.oo pesos which is around 35 US$. It's more expensive (though I don't think much more) but it picks you at the hotel and leaves you at the entrance of the park. You have to call beforehand. They are normaly safe. I'm from Barranquilla and I use their service a lot for traveling to Santa Marta or Cartagena, when I don't feel like driving.

My fiancé and I just took Marsol from Cartagena to Tayrona and back for 60,000 each way which took 6 hours and 7 hours respectively. Also, just know that "door-to-door" includes stopping at EVERY door of every passenger in the van with you so we spent ~60 mins winding through the streets of Barranquilla. If your fellow passengers don't know the exact address of their destination, you'll be along for the whole frustrating ride while they try to figure it out (just don't BE one of those passengers). You're also at the mercy of the driver's tastes in music and music volume so bring along your headphones.
