excellent place to spend the day.
took a boat from Taganga to avoid taking the land transport to Neguanje and the very bad road to it.
from Neguanje you will have to hike to playa del muerto or playa cristal as is callled now around...More
We travelled through Colombia - Cartagena, Bogata, Barranquilla (for the Carnival) and up to Taganga for the trip to Tayrona National Park. The boat trip was a nightmare. It started off late and disorganised but the sea in the bay was calm, however as soon...More
Beautiful beach, perfect sand, crystal clear water. Colombia needs to take better care of this and all the beaches on the Caribbean (litter and waste and not respecting nature 100% will bring this whole coastline down in a few years).
We booked a (day) tour to visit Tayrona and Crystal Beach (which was specifically recommended to us). We very much enjoyed our day. The surroundings are amazing and the water is clear. Also very much enjoyed to snorkel here! You can also enjoy a delicious...More
Small but BEAUTIFUL beach of Parque Tayrona! To get there you can take a boat from Taganga beach at 10:30 am or take a bus that will take you to Bahía de Neguanje where it will stop so you can take some cool pics and...More
While I in Santa Marta I made the conscious decision not to visit the main beach in Tyrona National Park. Now I may have missed out on a beautiful beach from my understanding its not easy to get to (trekking an hour and half) and...More
As a Colombian who has been living in USA for more than half of my life, decided to take my family to Santa Marta and for a Day trip to playa Cristal. I hired a driver that a friend recommended who has a comfortable mini...More
If you are a beach person, this destination is for you. There are a few local restaurants with local food, chairs and tents for rent. Food there is overpriced, average lunch is 35.000 COP with average food.
The best activity for me was snorkelling. The...More
Very nice beach, perfect to do snorkeling, spend the afternoon, and have a very good fresh fish. The restaurants are managed by local people, so is good to know that the money spent stays with the community. Very nice day trip.

If you're planning to go via Neguanje, I think the best (and most affordable option) is to buy a day package with a local tour operator. That way you'll have transportation for every step of the tour without having to worry to negotiate with people at every step or to be on a hurry to catch a boat or a bus. If you a group of people, you can even get a better deal with the tour operator.
I too would suggest Tayrona National Park as you get a good dose of nature, jungle, bouldering and beach--I'm not sure how ambitious your kids are about walking (as the furthest beach is 8km from the park gate)--however... More
I too would suggest Tayrona National Park as you get a good dose of nature, jungle, bouldering and beach--I'm not sure how ambitious your kids are about walking (as the furthest beach is 8km from the park gate)--however, there is a shuttle to the trail head for a small fee and you can rent a horse or donkey. There are few places to purchase drinks and food inside the park, so, stock up on snacks for the in between. When we went in January, we were told that officials would be checking for plastic containers and bags (not allowed inside park)--but, this never happened. I wouldn't recommend staying at the hotel inside the park--Posada Jasayma--it's extremely rustic (ie. no toilet seats, no electricity). Unless you have big bucks and choose to stay at the Eco-Habs (stunning). Just 2km from the park there's a cool place called Yuluka Eco-Hotel--on site restaurant, pool, monster-sized rooms with hammocks, balcony, awesome mango shakes (some traffic noise to contend with--but, wow). Check out my blogs about our trip (3 weeks)--I think your kids would also have a riot at the El Tutumo Mud Volcano (1 hour from Cartagena en route to Santa Marta). You can't include web links here, so please google "Mucking Around Colombia" and "(Not)Sleeping Around Colombia" by Jules Torti. Hope this helps!
