Trip Planner: South America / Colombia / Magdalena Department / Santa Marta Municipality / Tayrona National Park / 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.

Beautiful park and nice beaches. Most beaches not for swimming though and crowded. Make sure to reserve horses if you want to ride back out! We ended up not being able to get any as all were reserved and had to walk back through the jungle in pitch black darkness and pouring rain.
Try to avoid the queue at the main entrance and go in via the Calabazo entrance. There is literally no one and you get to see a different kind of vegetation too. You'll still end up at the same amazing spots and you exit through the main entrance. Saves you also from walking in and out via the same way
