From Taganga, I took a daytrip to the Parque Tayrona. I did the circuit in one day. Started in the entrance, then made my way past Cañaveral to the Carribean coast...after crossing the camps of Arecife and Cabo, I made my way up the mountain to the archeological site of el Pueblito. It is a nice hard walk uphill. I got lost once, but only because I stray off the beaten path :). From el Pueblito, I walked back to Calabazo, where the main highway passes... I took a bus back to Taganga from here. All in all it was a nice 7-hour walk, however, if I had to do it again, I will start in Calabazo, go up to el Pueblito, down to the Coast, and exit through the main entrance. All Colombians I met followed this route.

    Hi, I'm heading for Santa Martha in a month and I'm planning on staying at the Tayrona Park for 3 days. Does anyone have a contact to inquire about the Cabanas? Do I need to make some sort of reservation ahead of time? I would appreciate any info Jorge

    Trekking in Parque Tayrona and staying by the beach sounds lovely!
