At the top of the Andean spine, this beautiful corner of South America is little visited by tourists, making Santa Marta & Tayrona holidays an ideal counterpoint to Colombia's cities. Tayrona National Park is a huge forested area clinging to the steep slopes that plunge down to the Caribbean, while the old town of Santa Marta is an ideal stop off en route to this National Park. Similar to Cartagena,
although not as polished, with its colonial buildings, pretty squares and picturesque streets, Santa Marta is ideal for wandering around. Meanwhile, Colombia's Sierra Nevada - the backdrop to this region - is one of the tallest coastal mountain ranges in the world, ensuring the scenery is stunning. The wildness of the coastline is visible en route (from both Bogota and Cartagena) to the local town of Santa Marta and the beginning of the road to the National Park.

We have been really happy with your team and you would be my first choice another time. You were great at adapting the itinerary and trying to satisfy exactly what we needed. I also found the in-country concierges really helpful, as well as the app (especially the maps).
