Tayrona National Park

A half-day journey from Cartagena along the coast brings you to an incredibly beautiful part of Colombia’s coast – to Santa Marta and Tayrona, where deserted beaches and mysterious lost cities await.

Hike along quiet forest trails among mangroves and deserted inlets, and walk along tranquil and perfect white sand beaches, usually alone, in the shadow of the high peaks of the mountain ranges of Santa Marta.

The area is also dotted with the fascinating remains of ancient pre-Colombian civilisations such as Pueblito, or the remote ‘Lost City’, reached by a strenuous but rewarding 7-day trek through the mountains to this dramatic site within the region of the Kogui, descendants of the ancient Tayrona culture.

What Do Our Clients Say?

‘Greetings. this has turned out to be a paradise in so many ways....so a big thank you from us.

Wonderful support from your company over here....we were met at the airport (with flowers!!!!!) and introduced to our personal guide who is fabulous. Can't get over the attention to detail ....cool flannels, chilled water, fresh juice on arrival, bag full of thoughtful goodies for our trip, wonderful rooms with bathrooms bigger than our bedroom at home(!) and we were upgraded to a suite and as I write we are listening to tropical birdsong as we look out over the lagoon from our balcony. Wow!!!!!

I could go on but I'll spare you.

Thanks a million

Judy and Mike’
