Spend 4 days relaxing and exploring Colombia's beautiful flora, fauna and beaches in and around Tayrona National Park. This programme it the perfect extension to our Signature Colombia programme, for those who want to spend more time in the Caribbean sun!

Starting in Cartagena, you journey continues by traveling along the coastline to Los Naranjos. Here you will stay in a unique ecolodge that is right next to the Tayrona National Park. Look our for interesting mammals and birds including the extremely endangered cotton-topped tamarin, as you explore some of the trails that make up some of Tayrona National Park  - the entire area stretches over 150 square kilometres of coastline -including rainforests, rivers and beaches. Enjoy the coconut palm lined white sandy beaches of Canaveral and Arrecifes on an ecological walk, and perhaps take a dip in the water at well known Piscinita beach. 

There is free time, to relax at the pool, snorkel, or if you are feeling more energetic  hike to Cabo San Juan or visit Pueblito Chayrama, where archaeological ruins lie. These are remnants of the Tayrona people, who once inhabited this area and built their ancient capital, Cuidad Perdida (Lost City) in the jungle nearby.
