Stunning natural park, has the charm of a virgin place, the mix of jungle and beaches are unique, the restaurants a bit precarious but worth the ride, on the way back we ride and we could appreciate the beauty of nature, we saw monkeys and giant butterflies, a piece of paradise

After a few years of traveling too and living in Santa Marta I have not experienced every area of this very large park. I highly recommend spending a night or two at the ecolabs. They are small native houses converted to 5 type hotel rooms located on the mountain overlooking the beach. Each has a nice sized bed, ceiling fan, Ipod Dock, SatTV, power, and shower with hot running water. You don't AC because you can open the shutters and get a nice ocean breeze. The location also has a very nice restaurant which provides room service. They are expensive and reservations are needed far in advance as there are very few.

You will see all sorts of wildlife at Tayrona and there is lot of hiking area. Its a short 30 min drive from Santa Marta.

Great park, great place to make walking trips, as well as horse trips up to the restaurant. I recommend to walk down, as you walk along the beach side.

Ee tooke the bus based tour and loved it. If you are visiting santa marta then this trip is a must. it is just beautiful and the snorkeling is expensive but worth it. A must do for any visitor. The only problem was that our guide didnt speak english and we speak very little spanish. luckily a lovely Argentinian couple on the tour translated for us.

Great for a hike and beautiful beaches. The only downside is the expensive food, so bring some with you if you can! We took the boat back to Rodadero and it was definitely worth it!
