Deserted beach in Tayrona National Park

Tayrona National Park

Head east from Santa Marta into the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, the highest coastal mountain range in the world. Your guide will accompany you as you travel into Tayrona National Park — do keep your eyes peeled at all times for macaws in the treetops!

After entering the park continue to a parking area and trailhead from where you can explore the park with your guide.

Do be prepared for some mud especially in the wetter season.
