Depart from your Santa Marta hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan and relax during the scenic 1-hour drive to the alluring entrance of Tayrona National Park. Disembark the minivan and set out on a spectacular 1-hour walk to the curving Caribbean coastline of the 29,650-acre (12,000-hectare) expanse. Admire lush rainforest and the crashing waves of the sea as you observe the land and sky for howler monkeys, deer, white eagles and swooping bats.
Listen as your experienced guide provides interesting information regarding the complex eco-system of the National Park, and then prepare to plunge into the iridescent waters of the ocean for a refreshing swim. Sink your toes into the pristine white sands of the beach before splashing in the idyllic natural pools of the area.
Refuel with a flavorsome and fulfilling lunch in a rustic restaurant (own expense), then return to the minivan for the relaxing journey back to Santa Marta.
