“Diving is ok, the rest is less ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

I booked three dives and a night in Tayrona park with this company, which is based in Taganga, on the main street at the beach. They are cheap but go there only for the diving experience. The guy who sold us the package, Henry, showed us beautiful pictures of the park, the place where you stay overnight in hammocks, a tent or in a room. In reality the place is barren, dry and really dirty. Depends also on the time of year I guess. Be sure to take your own food with you. The food you get there is not that good and the portions are way too small. Nothing of the promised fruits and choice of foods. You have to pay high prices for the dinner and breakfast if you want those. Besides that, the cook is grumpy. Go with them for the dives, they are cheap (be sure to check the equipment!) but the rest is nothing worth mentioning of. They also promised to take pictures of us underwater but the guide was more busy taking pictures of the sealife...better for sales I guess...
