Parque Tayrona is an awesome place to hike. Even my kids (10 and 13) had fun. Cool wildlife (birds, fish, snakes) and there are few rules so you can hike where you want. Challenging hikes to beautiful beaches. Amazing workout. Incredible view sand scenery. Professionally...More

Takes about 2.5 hours from the park entrance. Opportunities to see monkeys, and lots of other wildlife. We even saw a full length caiman. Make sure that you have sun cream and insect repellent.

No one asked us about yellow fever. However, we did take Quinine as a preventive for Malaria. It seems they are more worried about that. We were there in October of 2018. It was FANTASTIC and should be on the Bucket List.
