Tips to keep in mind when visiting Tayrona Park. Be a smart and responsible traveler.
When traveling, the rush is treacherous, so we recommend preparing your vacation with moderate time and investigating what type of items we can or cannot take to our destination. For example, in terms of food, non-perishable foods can be entered in biodegradable packaging and bags.
In the case of Tayrona Park , remember that you will arrive in a jungle area and coastal, so you must be prepared for any type of situation; a lot of sun or rain, mosquitoes etc … especially the distance and the difficult access from the city to the park.
For this reason, so that you can enjoy this wonderful place without problems, keep in mind the following recommendations:
Make sure to bring your documents.
Try to carry the smallest and most practical luggage you have for your comfort on walks. (You have the option of paying for a horse or mule to transport the luggage).
Suitable shoes for walks.
Make the flashlight your best ally at night.
Insect repellent (remember to apply after every bath, after sunscreen, and at night).
Bottled water (in some of the beaches you will find water for sale, but we recommend it for the entrance walk).
Long but fresh clothes for the nights.
Quick dry clothes.
Some kind of Antiallergic (just in case) on Cabo San Juan beach you will find a civil defense post, which is prepared to provide first aid.
If possible, apply the yellow fever vaccine days before your trip (not necessary, but recommended). Remember that pets are not allowed inside Tayrona Park.
Traveling is a personal experience, but taking into account recommendations and doing a little research on your destination is always helpful to avoid making your vacation a traumatic and unpleasant experience.
