A visit to Tayrona Park

This is a medium to challenging level walk (approximately three hours one way). The park is located in Santa Marta, at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. The park covers 12,000 hectares of land and 3,000 hectares of sea. It is home to some of Colombia’s best beaches, lagoons, wildlife, rainforest, palm trees, coves and rich biodiversity.

The walk leads you to one of Tayrona’s many beaches, where you will stop for lunch and well-deserved beach time. Lunch is not included, however, this will give you an opportunity to try more local food and support other small businesses with your food purchase. This is a full day tour.

A guided walk to cacao farm

This is a short walk through the Sierra Nevada (approximately 30 minutes one way) to an amazing farm where you will learn the various steps that go into making good quality chocolate. You will also sample the goods! This activity lasts approximately two hours.

A guided walk to Caoba reserve

This is a short walk through the Sierra Nevada (approximately 35 minutes one way) where you will enjoy a guided tour of the reserve. The reserve is inhabited by turtles, fishes, tropical plants and birds.

There are also ruins of the Tayrona culture that once lived in the Sierra Nevada mountains, many years ago. At the end of the tour, you will enjoy a dip in the river. This activity lasts approximately two hours.

A visit to a local waterfall

This is a medium level walk (approximately one hour one way) to a delightful, natural waterfall where you will be able to inhale the fresh mountainous air and play like a child in the waterfall. This activity lasts approximately three hours.
