Located just 1 hour away from Santa Marta, Tayrona National Park is a must see when you plan to visit the Caribbean coast of Colombia.
Once in the park you can do many activities like observation of flora and fauna, archeological sites and trek through its lush nature. In addition to its natural and archaeological attractions, the Tayrona National Park is a good scenario for relaxation thanks to its exotic beaches connected by stone paths that also lead to the different areas of the park and main attractions.
