We just had a really nice day at Tayrona National park, which was left on a sour note after being ripped off on the way out of the park - ARCANGEL URIEL - these guys are at Cabo San Juan offering a boat ride to Santa Marta - note they do not go to Santa Marta, they took us to Taganga and pulled the boat up on the beach when we told them they had said they would take us to Santa Marta they just said 'no' and turned away, literally. This had cost us COP45,000 each. As a storm was brewing we decided not to take the 2 hour hike back the way we had come (via La Piscina and Arrecifes - which were stunning!) and take the boat back instead, it was pricey but we thought it would be worth seeing the coast. Which is amazing.
We did have a great time at the park, the walks are gorgeous - even if badly sign posted and no map is given despite if costing COP35,000 to get in (Columbians pay COP14,000), the only thing that ruined it for us was these guys on the boat. They were walking around the beach saying 'boat to Santa Marta' so it was not like we had misunderstood. It was more the attitude when we arrived at Taganga and they could not have cared less. Avoid them.
