Parque Tayrona is a hidden gem. Is the only place in the world where you can get mountains, rainforest, pristine beaches and native culture. Is a sacred place for the Tayronas, Arauacos and Kogis. Flora and fauna are out of the ordinary. The place can become crowded and entrance is limited so is hard to get an entrance if you don’t book a tour or know your way around.
