Things to Do and See

  • Tayrona - Hike to Pueblita Ruins

    A 3 to 4 hour uphill hike from Cabo San Juan to Tayrona Indian ruins provides a nice change of pace from lounging on the beach and offers a chance to experience both the Tayrona National Park's wildlife and history on a deeper level. Map to Pueblita available at park entrance.

  • Tayrona - Playa Arrecifes

    While rip currents can be extremely dangerous at Arrecifes, the community of back packers, restaurants, and general store make Arrecifes beach a great place to camp for the night, chill out and relax in the sun. Swimming beaches are just a 15 minute hike to the west.

  • Tayrona - Cabo San Juan

    All the beaches in Tayrona offer incredible views, but Cabo San Juan is a hands down favorite. San Juan is perfect for swimming or snorkeling, and tent camping and hammocks are available. If you arrive between 12 and 3, try to get one of the hammocks in the tower for an amazing sunset.

  • Tayrona Cañaveral

    Cañaveral beach is just a 5 minute walk from the Tayrona parking drop off point, but as it is in the opposite direction from the rest of the parks beaches, it is incredibly secluded. You may be the feeling that you are walking through paradise in a bottle. Luxury accommodations available.

  • Tayrona - Bahía Concha

    Bahía Concha is the most accessible beach in Tayrona because you can reach it directly in a car without hiking in. It is a beautiful place to spend an afternoon if you are want to experience Tayrona's beauty without the overnight camping experience.

  • Tayrona - Snorkeling at Cabo San Juan

    Cabo San Juan has two bays which are protected from the strong currents that make swimming dangerous at many of Tayrona's beaches. Here you can see a variety of tropical fish that inhabit the area. Snorkeling gear is available at the general store but is expensive and in short supply.
