Super tough but one of the best things I've ever done. The trek is hard! def train before you go! and take energy bars, and any injury supports as its hard on your joints. Def go with Wiwa tours - the only indigenous owned and run tour company and by far the best from talking to people in other groups. An amazing experience you won't regret and will remember forever.

This 37,000 acre ecotourism park includes reefs, Beaches, mangroves and Tayrona Indian ruins.
I couldn’t find this item before as I looked under Tayrona and not Parque... Tayrona and wrote a long and descriptive review under Tayrona Trips. You can read all my opinions and recommendations there if you are really interested in this park/forest.
This is nothing extraordinary or exceptional compared to the very difficult walk and climbing. It takes a full day and leaves you exhausted. Not worth the effort, this is just an ordinary forest, nothing like Iguazu for example. Spend your time in Zona Cafetera instead.

A beach which is accessible by boat (10 minutes) from Taganga main beach. Very nice location, a bay surrounded by green Mountains and cliffs. Water are cristal clear with many fish swimming nearby, no need for snorkeling equipment to watch them. However it was a little bit crowded with many families with small children. Not the perfect place for a quiet romantic time.. many paddlers selling things are a little bit annoying. In overall a nice not so deserted beach.

The building which functioned in the Spanish colonial era as the Customs House (Casa de la Aduana) for the port of Santa Marta is today a museum that lets you explore stories of the past and present from this corner of Colombia's magic Caribbean region.
This museum is really well-kept and admission is free. The main attraction is typically seeing the gold exhibit, but the rest of the museum describes the (pre-)colonial Santa Marta. There are also some excellent exhibits on the indigenous tribes of the region.

This final home of Simon Bolivar contains a museum housing works of art from countries he helped liberate.
This is the place where Simón Bolívar (the one who fought for Colombia's independence) died. It used to be an extensive farm, but now there's only the main buildings. The colonial style makes you feel like going back in time.
The place also has a modern area, where they even throw some Concerts and events.

PLAYACA is a quiet and peaceful beach located in the bay of Taganga where you will find activities such as: kayaking, snorkeling, trekking and mountain biking. Great restaurant and cocktail bar. BEER all the time.
This is the main street along the sea. There are restaurants, fruit juice shak, handcrafts vendors, groceries stores, and much more. The street is closed from Friday till Sunday for walking only.
On Saturday night, it can be very busy as every bar and restaurant have parties.

Mundo Marino aquarium display has more than 276 marine species , including sharks, rays , sea horses , starfish , octopus and others. The journey in the aquarium is fully guided and takes about 45 minutes. Monday-wednesday-Friday at 4:00pm: Food of sharks and fish. ¡We will wait for you!
We did this trip on a rainy day. It was perfect! not huge but is organized, you can see the sea turtles and the stingrays right there! Remember your patronage means they get to maintain and help the Ocean outside the aquarium. I hope you enjoy it.

It should be a pretty place to walk along the bay and watch the sunset and boats. Instead its dirty and sketchy people around. I would not recommend walking around there at night.
