Let's run away


Theatrical trailers of the park


The indigenous people do a great job of keeping the park pristine against the threat of tourists like us. You feel the energy as soon as you enter that part of the jungle. It's a super peaceful environment and the indigenous people have maintained an astonishingly ancestral way of life - it's pretty cool to walk among them. 


The trek to Cabo San Juan (a beach 4 miles from our hotel and the park entrance) is one of the main reasons that people go to Tayrona. It’s an pleasant, flat trek that goes between the jungle and the beach, 1.5-3 hours each way.


The indigenous people have said that they might be closing down the park more than the usual 3x annually due to increased activity, so there is a chance that the park will be closed when we’re there, in which case we wouldn’t be able to do the trek.


If this happens we’ll just spend more time relaxing poolside, eating seafood and drinking jungle juice. There are also other hikes and interesting places for the restless to discover.

about tayrona

Tayrona is a national park, located on the Caribbean coast of Colombia. Its unlike most of the Caribbean places you’ve visited for a few reasons - all resulting in superior preservation of the environment and an elevated experience for visitors: 


First, the park is protected by Colombian law and everyone there takes those laws very seriously.


Second, the indigenous groups of Tayrona dictate the protection of the land. They have pre-Columbian methods of tracking the health of the environment and they close down the park when they feel the energy getting out of balance.


Third, this part of the coast was occupied by both the FARC and the right-wing paramilitaries during the civil war so, while the people of Colombia were being terrorized for half a century, the nature was actually being sheltered from the cruise ship hoards and xylophone music that was taking over the rest of the Caribbean.


Most importantly, Colombian culture respects the land as much as Colombian law does.
