Tayrona is the most well-known national park in Colombia. Colombians, Frenchies, Americans, everyone wants to add it in his Colombia itinerary.
It’s easy to understand why Tayrona became so famous among the traveler community.

- The trails through dense vegetation are easy
- Long white sand beaches with tall palm trees
- It’s a paradise
- Perfect Instagram pictures #makeyourfriendsjealous
Unfortunately, because of everyone falling in love with Colombia, Tayrona park can be overcrowded. And, let me tell you that the experience won’t be the same if hundreds of tourists surround you. #byebyeparadise
Dry your tears, my little friend, we’ve got many tips on this page to help you out.
- Start early. Zaino opens at 8 am, and Calabazo opens at 6 am!
- Hike more than the others. Everyone starts from the main entrance – El Zaino – because they want the most straightforward access to reach the most famous beach – Cabo San Juan. Hike from Calabazo, and you won’t meet other travelers.
- Stay more days in Tayrona. We always recommend Calabazo – Playa Brava – Cabo San Juan – Zaino to our clients. 3 days.
- The welfare of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta is essential for the indigenous communities. The park is closed on 01/02 to 28/02, 1 to 15 of June and 19/10 t0 02/11. Dates may change every year.
