Hike through verdant jungles to idyllic boulder-strewn beaches

Stretching over 21 miles of the Caribbean Coastline to the east of Santa Marta, Tayrona offers an excellent mix of relaxation and hiking opportunities, amid beautiful surroundings. The park is defined by pristine beaches and largely verdant lowland rainforest teeming with howler and tamarin monkeys, iguanas, frogs, lizards, caimans and more than 400 species of birds. There are diverse walking trails throughout the park, which lead you deep into the jungle, below the shade of the forest canopy and towards the picture-perfect beaches, surrounded by large rocks and shaded by palm trees, that define this magnificent national park.

Tayrona - Travel Insights - Archeology in Tayrona

The area was once home to the Tayrona people, and some archaeological remains can be found in the park, the best of which are at Pueblito, found up in the hills and thought to have once been a major town and these days home to a small group of indigenous people. It is seen as a smaller and more manageable alternative to the nearby Lost City trek and can be reached on foot in a full day round trip hike from one of the park's Western entrances.
