We stayed at the Maloka which is not right on the sea, but quieter. Other guests were staying first in the finka on the beach and could not sleep at night because of the noise of the waves right under your room. The location is amazing and truyl worthwhile the experience. The scenery is fabulous with the view over the river flowing into the sea. In the early morning you seek a lot of local fisherman on the beach throwing their nets into the sea to try to catch some fish. Another world. The food is OK, but not our primary purpose for this location. It is probably a bit expensive for the quality of the room and the service you get, but nevertheless the location is so superb that you have to live with this. If you want to go to Tayrona, we recommend you walk to the main road which is a ten minute walk and lift your hand when a public bus passes (every 15 minutes) and ask to halt at the entrance of the park. This will cost you 1,600 pesos per person and is really easy. You then avoid the overpriced taxi fare.
