Tayrona National Park
Updated: Jul 22, 2018
Tayrona National Park is one of Colombia's greatest treasures. Located near the city of Santa Marta, it's got stunning beaches, incredible nature, excellent hiking, and has enough for the archaeology lover.
There are several options to visit the park. It's possible to take a relaxed guided tour to Playa Cristal, which has calm crystal clear waters, or a long hike to the ruins at Pueblito Chairama.
Our favorite, however, is Cabo San Juan del Guía. The beach at Cabo San Juan is one of the best in Colombia. You can reach it via a scenic 2 hour hike or on horseback from the park entrance.
Visit Tayrona National Park on our Caribbean Escape, Colombia Essentials, or Complete Colombia tours, or add it to any customized tour.
