PDF Print E-mail

Colombia, Tayrona National Park. Trekking 5 days + recovery in Cartagena another 3 or 5 days.

The Tayrona National Park is located in the Atlantic Coast (North of Colombia), 34 km. towards the northeast of the historic city of Santa Marta. The landscape is covered by huge white rocks breaking the waves of the Caribbean Sea and by cobbled paths which climb until the vestiges of the Tayrona culture, the pre Hispanic inhabitants of this region.

Bays, beaches, mangrove swamps, coral reefs, fish, molluscs and seaweeds share this magnificent place with hills, woods, bushes, more than 100 species of mammals, 200 species of birds, 50 species of reptiles and several archaeological ruins of the Tayrona culture which is one of the most interesting pre Hispanic ethnic groups of Colombia.



This great variety of fauna and flora is due to the 12.000 land hectares and the 3.000 marine hectares which spread out form the sea level until 900 m of height, allowing the development of different land and marine ecosystems.  

Temperature: from 25º C to 30º C.    Climate: warm to hot.

As from this evening it has also been decided for our choice of staying here either 3 more day ( 2 night extra) or check out next day to move on to Colonial and partying Cartagena. Our choice will be for 3 or 5 days at our Boutique Hotel in central and Colonial Cartagena. Breakfast included but no meals:

Since the discovery of America, Spain has expanded it's colonies giving way to a territory in the Caribbean, where Don Pedro Heredia founded the city of Cartagena de Indias on June 1 1533. Today Cartagena is declared a historical and cultural world heritage site from UNESCO.

This city transfers us back to history when it was the epicentre of regular attacks from pirates and buccaneers.  To defend against the attacks walls were created which form the "Corralito de Piedra".  For resisting attacks against its walls with admirable heroism this city earned the name "La Heroica", and within these walls you will find Old Town. 

Cartagena is filled with distinct streets and places, where visitors can enjoy a variety of culinary delights, local artistry, religion and social culture.  Strolling along one can observe baroque and colonial architecture in the many restaurants and cafe's, the 5-star hotels with tropical ambiance, and the churches such as "The Cathedral", "Santo Domingo", and "San Pedro Claver".

The historical centre of Cartagena fascinates with its unique architecture.  In keeping with the colonial tradition the terraces are kept full of exotic flora.  Local and foreign investors buy these properties where they enjoy enchanting patios, pools, and tropical gardens.

A one hour boat ride or 15 minutes by helicopter from Cartagena takes you to the famous archipelago "Islas del Rosario" embedded into a natural coral-bank where you can enjoy crystal clear water full of a great variety of flora and fauna.  There you can also practice water sports such as scuba diving, and snorkelling.
