Create an itinerary including Parque Nacional Natural Tayrona
A magical spot where the jungle meets the sea, Parque Nacional Natural Tayrona remains one of Colombia's leading outdoor attractions largely thanks to its pristine nature. The national park offers a diverse range of landscapes, including arid brown lands in the west, rainforest in the center, and sandy beaches along the coastal north. While the water looks extremely inviting, many beaches--especially those marked with red flags--remain unsafe for swimming due to strong currents. If you're visiting the coastline in high season, prepare for big crowds and long lines in front of restaurants and facilities. Use our Tayrona National Park road trip planning tool to visit Parque Nacional Natural Tayrona on your trip to Tayrona National Park, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • This park makes me really appreciate the United States national parks. When you pay over $30 to get into a park there is some expectation that there are facilities that are maintained. This park is...

  • Beautiful natural park along Colombia’s coastline. This is a beautiful place to enjoy coastal jungle and beautiful beaches. The previous reviews complain that the hike is difficult, not well...

  • June 25 2022 I do not recommend it at this time. This place, apart from being a beautiful reserve, is currently in very poor condition for access to the beaches and other activities, the rains have turned the access roads into mud, we were all desperate to get out of there as soon as possible, the mud reached us half a leg and many tourists choose to rent horses to be able to move forward and this makes everything even worse, only 30% of the roads are made of wood, the rest of the access is through very narrow stones, dirt roads, streams, and areas of much vegetation with almost no access, food is expensive, and it is not safe for older adults or infants, there is no assistance in case of emergencies during the walk and you have to buy insurance worth 5000 Colombian pesos and I only saw 2 people supposed to help at the beginning and almost at the end of the trail.
  • What a breathtaking pleasure, view, discover. We spent the entire day with pleasure, we had one day to visit but I recommend 2 days. They also have a place for camping. From the forest to the sea and more. Just amazing
