If you go to Tayrona Park, I would definitely not recommend the boat from Cabo San Juan to Taganga. It was VERY DANGEROUS. Our boat sunk in the middle of the ocean, and we had to be rescued. During the rescue the owners kept operating...More

I spent a weekend in Tayrona National Park. It takes about an hour to get there from Santa Marta by bus, and then there’s a 2 hour hike to get to the main beach area, Cabo San Juan. It was crowded when I was there,...More

The Tayrona park is great! Be prepared to walk a lot. cabo de san juan is an amazing place to visit with a great vibe and the camping at castilletes is really nice!

I visited Tayrona in March 2018, and I can't wait to return. It's going to be hard to keep this review short. First off, in order to enter the park you have to have had a yellow fever vaccination. This was effective the month after...More

Having the beach to ourselves after a night in the hammocks was really special and we managed to see a leatherback turtle! I’d recommend taking snack food for lunch and breakfast as the restaurant is quite expensive in Tayrona.

We went on the Saturday (sacrilege) of the long weekend, which is apparently a big no-no due to how busy it gets (also a popular place for Colombians to come. We went through the less popular Calabazzo entrance. There were no lines and the fee...More
