Once you’ve landed in Santa Marta, your guide will be waiting for you and facilitate your transfer to your
hotel in Tayrona.
Comfort Hotel, Casa Barlovento
In the morning, we’ll leave our hotel to reach the eastern entrance of the park after approximately 1 hour.
From the Cañaveral sector, we will begin a walk through the tropical dry forest until arriving at the sector of
Arrecifes. Here, we’ll have a short break and time to refresh. We’ll continue to Arenilla Beach, the Piscina
Beach and Cabo San Juan, where we’ll have time to relax on the beach. At about 4 p.m. we’ll start our
walk back to Cañaveral where our car awaits to take us to the hotel. (B)
Comfort Hotel, Finca La
Today we’ll take our transport to the Don Diego river bank. From here, we’ll continue upstream by boat until
we reach the reserve. Upon arrival, we’ll be welcomed with delicious “patacones” and some traditional
panela water. We’ll visit the small Tayrona Museum to learn about the history and way of life of this culture
until today. Then, we’ll visit a typical bungalow belonging to the Koguis Indians called bohío and continue
walking along pre-Hispanic terraces to a small lookout point. Then we’ll walk along a nature path bordering
the Don Diego River. After approximately 1 hour, we’ll reach the mouth of the Don Dieguito River in Don
Diego. Here, we can bathe where the rivers unite, one of hot water and one of somewhat colder water.
After having lunch (box-lunch), comes the most exciting part of the day: tubing down the Don Diego River
to reach the reserve! After tubing, we’ll head back to the hotel. (B)
Comfort Hotel, Finca La Jorara
Today, we’ll drive along one of Colombia’s main coastal roads for about 4-5 hours to the city of Cartagena
de Indias, a city that combines within its walls centuries of history, culture and flavors, a product of Spanish
miscegenation. The arrival of thousands of slaves from West Africa and migration throughout the late
nineteenth century make this a very diverse region. After arriving to Cartagena, we’ll start a walking tour
through the old quarter that covers Plaza de San Diego, Plaza Fernandez of Madrid, Bolivar Park, Plaza de
los Coches and Plaza Santo Domingo. We will also get to walk on the walls and visit the bastions of Santo
Domingo and San Francisco Javier, where we will learn all about the history and defense strategy of the city.
We’ll get to see the most emblematic streets and learn about their legends, and we’ll visit important churches
such as the Cathedral San Pedro Claver and Santo Domingo. (B)
Hotel Comfort, Don Pedro de Heredia
