If you are short of time but don’t want to leave Santa Marta without visiting its main destination, don’t worry, we are here for you! 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: San Juan’s cape, Arrecifes and Crystal beaches among others. Have a traditional lunch by the sea 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 everything it offers is Tayrona National Natural Park: a complete must-do in the city and the whole country.
In this full-day-tour one of our professional drivers and an experienced guide will pick you up from your hotel or any chosen departure point in Santa Marta and safely drive you for less than hour to get to the Park. Once inside, you will start this adventure that has a little bit of everything.
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 of 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 nature to Crystal beach. This is 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: San Juan’s Cape, 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 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 talking with some other travelers.
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.
