Reasons to Visit
Tayrona National Park
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.
