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.

  • Our money was stolen from a locked room during our stay. The same happened to our neighbours (Argentinian couple) on the same day. Do not go there, it ruined our perception of the park itself.

  • Look at this walking trail! The park is beautiful of course but at what cost? The main trail to camping is ran through with horses so you have to dodge mud for hours. Entry fee, insurance, hammock, all cost at least $60. Not even picnic benches at the campsite. I won’t be back.
  • Awesome Park! Really cool to discover the park, plan some good time to walking until you arrive to the beaches but it will be a great experience walking inside the jungle. There is also the possibility of going on a horse to the beaches. You also meet with native indigent people who still live like back in the days! If I could I would have spent many more days there!
