TAYRONA NATIONAL PARK CLOSURE –28th January - 28th February 2018
Tayrona National Park will be closed from 28th January 2018 to 28th February 2018 as a result of discussions between the park operators and the local indigenous people regarding the ecological recuperation of the ecosystem. Trip departures starting on the 10th and 24th of February 2018 will not visit Tayrona National Park and instead visit ‘Sierra e Mar’ a tropical rainforest with a similar landscape to Tayrona. The included hike will offer a big diversity of fauna and flora as well as having the option to swim in crystal clear fresh water rock pools.
Our Explore Colombia trips score an average of 4.55 out of 5 based on 38 reviews in the last year.
I wouldn't go again as I think the price for what is a back packing holiday is quite high. However if that is your thing it is a great way to see some countries that you wouldn't be able to explore alone.
Review submitted 16 Jan 2018
Explore Colombia is a trip I can't recommend highly enough. The itinerary is varied, the landscapes diverse, the locals friendly, and the activities memorable. Tayrona and Barichara were trip highlights - as was the expert leadership of Intrepid guide Carolina (equal parts organised and friendly)! If you want to see country's beauty, popular sights and hidden gems, this is the tour for you.
