Tayrona Park is adrenaline, trails of both rock, mud, grass and sand I recommend it for young people and without small children has much to walk and beautiful beaches.

Unbelievable place to visit. Great trails for hiking(9piedras hike,pueblito). Possible to avoid other travellers. Breathtaking views of mountains and Caribbean Sea. Place to escape everything and just relax.
