If you are short of time but don’t want to leave Santa Marta without visiting its main destination, don’t worry, our tour in Tayrona Park is what you need! With this day trip to Tayrona Park, we will pick you up from your hotel and take you to all of the places you need to know: Cabo San Juan, Arrecifes, and crystal-clear beaches among others. Have a traditional lunch by the sea (not included) and spend the rest of the day relaxing near the beach.
Santa Marta is a place that boasts diversity. If there is something you can’t definitely miss out on everything it offers is Tayrona National Natural Park: a complete must-do in the city and the whole country. Trust us! You will be truly amazed by the natural beauty of this park paradise. And this will be one of those trips one never forgets.
Keep in mind Tayrona Park closes for some time each year for environmental, spiritual, and cultural reasons. In fact, thanks to this closure it is possible to observe certain animals in the wild, such as jaguars or small mammals. We invite you to read all about the closure dates for 2023 and the importance of this break for the ecosystem.
In this full-day tour, one of our professional drivers and an experienced guide will pick you up from your hotel in Santa Marta and safely drive you for less than an hour to get to the Park. Once inside, you will start this adventure that has a little bit of everything. We suggest you start this trip before 8 a.m. so you don’t get stuck in traffic on the way back.
From the entrance you will start hiking deep in the woods along the marked trails until you get to the first beach: Arrecifes (reefs). This is the biggest beach in the park and one of the campsites but, as it is not possible to swim in its waters due to the strong sea currents, you will only stay there for a couple of minutes to have a break.
Ready again, you will keep walking down and up the natural paths with its incredible natural Crystal-clear beaches. These are one of the top 25 most beautiful beaches of South America due to its turquoise crystal-clear calm waters.
And last but not least you will get to the final destination: Cabo San Juan, known for having a picturesque viewpoint from a kiosk and another campsite.
Once in here, you will enjoy a traditional Caribbean lunch by the sea (not included) and you will have the rest of the day to lie under a palm tree’s shade, relax, swim, walk by the seashore, or even talk with some other travelers. In the end, our driver will take you back to your hotel in Santa Marta where you can rest.
Enjoy a full day of contrast with two amazing spots: the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá and the Guatavita Lake. Truthly unforgettable places!
