Graeme and Janine travelled with their good friends, Tim and Sarah, on a month long adventure to Colombia and Peru earlier this year. Please see their feedback on the places and logistics of the trip below.
Tayrona National Park and coast
An insider's guide to Tayrona National Park and surrounds featuring hotels, reviews, rates and activities to do.
Tim and Sarah travelled with us to Colombia and Peru to see some of South America's more and less visited sights over a month...what a trip! Please take a look at their feedback below to get a feel for how everything went.
Colombia may not be the first destination in South America that you would think of for a family holiday or vacation but it is somewhere that has a great deal to offer. From exploring the wilds of the Amazon jungle around Leticia, to learning how coffee is produced, to seeing the golden masks of the pre-Colombian cultures, to swimming with dolphin in the azure waters of the Caribbean, there is a lot to see and do.
Tayrona National Park and the Coast
Just 34 Kms from Santa Marta on the Caribbean coast, Tayrona National Park consists of 12,000 land and 3,000 marine hectares of protected area with diverse flora of mangrove swamps, thorny scrubland, cloud forests, corals and algae prairies. The climate is humid and tropical with rainy months May & June and September & November. Entrance to the park is via Neguanje, Calabazo, and Cañaveral, the latter is home to Eco-habs, which we like to recommend our clients as the only comfortable, and luxury alternative option to camping.
