Long drive early in the morning. Tayrona park is interesting but not enough time to visit other places in the patk only Cristal beach which was very bussy. Santa Marta is nothing special but if you have enough time in Cartagena revommended.
Good Destination but far too long a journey to get there

A nice day trip,to a pleasant clean beach . It compares favourably with Playa Blanca which by all accounts is overcrowded and riddled with people hassling you to buy things . It was 18 hours door to door with 12 of those hours being spent on the bus. This is a beach trip and if you want to see Wild Life in Tayrona there’s a two hour walking option ( 4 hours walking round trip ) . The tour people were v kind ,pleasant and helpful but there was limited English spoken .

Gracias por sus comentarios, presentamos excusas por las horas de recorrido, ya que en ese momento había problemas en la carretera con la construcción de un puente en la entrada de Barranquilla, esto prácticamente incrementó el recorrido en alrededor de 5 horas. En este momento ya el impace está superado. Esperamos tener el placer de tenerlos nuevamente y ofrecerles nuevos destinos maravillosos.
Beautiful beach

The beach was beautiful and relaxing. The lunch was tasty. This is only the one Crystal beach, so you won't see any fun wildlife. I misunderstood that when I booked so if you'd like to hike and see wild life I would try a separate tour. The company and guides were nice and also bilingual! Would recommend!

Good morning, we are very pleased with your comment. Thank you for your opinion. We offer 2 sectors of Tayrona Park: 1. Cristal Beach, which was the one you reserved and basically it is enjoy beaches and views. 2. Cabo San Juan del Guia, which includes 4 hours of hiking where you can observe nature, forests and wild animals, have contact with Kogüi Indians and finally enjoy the beaches of Cabo San Juan. We hope you will join us on this next opportunity to this earthly paradise.
Great trip!

First time ever using this site & the tour was fantastic. Prompt and very convenient pick-up; pleasant tour guides and beautiful experience as expected. Make sure to bring your own towels, extra $ and use the restroom prior to boarding the bus!

Beautiful beach and reef, surrounded by mountains

The trip was long, because that Tayrona Park is far from Cartagena. We had a small inconvenience that the bus had a technical problem, but the guide Alice and the driver were espectacular and resolve the problem efficiently in order for our group to have a pleasant excursion. What a wonderful day, beautiful place, pretty beach, snorkeling was amazing, beautiful colors fish and the reefs full of life..

Not as expected
, Oct 2019
Based on all of the very positive reviews for this tour, I expected it to be nice. Instead everything was in Spanish; the English translator maybe spoke a total of ten sentences the entire trip. I had to constantly ask others what was going to on understand. I had booked with the intent to do some hiking as well, which was part of the tour (it split into two groups - one to hike, one to sit on the bus and drive to another beach) and because of the poor translation, I was not informed when to get off to hike. So instead I basically sat on the bus all day, and then sat on the beach for a few hours. beautiful beach, but not worth the trip at all.

Good afternoon, we are very sorry with your comment, however we want to remind you that you have a clear explanation of what it is and includes the tour before booking. In the explanatory walk is never offered, since this is part of another tour that goes to a different sector of Tayrona Park, and is called Cabo San Juan. The other people who made this activity bought it with us but not through the Tripadvisor or Viator platform, since it is not yet available there. On the other hand in the explanatory we never offer a guide in English, only written English, and this tool was always at your fingertips with our guide to answer your questions. As an additional bonus, we send a translator on the tour to facilitate your experience, but it is not a commitment or inclusion of the tour. Therefore, what we promised you at the time of your reservation, is what you really received. We appreciate your comment, which will be very useful for future travelers.

I really liked and enjoyed everything and every little second of the tour. The tour guide person (Alix Marrugo) who became a good friend and guide of us after the tour. We actually end up taking 2 more tours from her and She came along with us to Cholon, the best experience ever. I honestly recommended a hundred percent to everyone. You would love it and love her...…... Jacinto Huato from Las Vegas Baby! Cartagena I'll be back pretty soon...……...

Amazing experience

Spend literally all day out from 3:45am and came back at 11 to my hotel. It was exhausting but it was amazing! Crystal beach is beautiful! there are very few people, no one is trying to sell you stuff, pure enjoying.If you only have a day to go to Tayrona then definitely do this trip!it is tiring but definitely worth it!

We appreciate, for living this great experience with us and apologize for the time of transfer since between cities there are sometimes jobs on the road which makes us take a bit, we will be improving every day.
Un espacio natural de sol, playas y aguas a disfrutar. Y muy bien conservado
, Mar 2020
Preciosa excursión al Parq.Nat.Tairona. Recomendable. Quizás desde Cartagena algo largo el desplazarse. Pero mereció la pena. Ir en bus también nos permite ver el interior del país y así algo más de idea se tiene de su realidad, no solo lo bonito de las áreas turísticas. Pero !cuidado! con el aire-acondicionado del bus (abrigarse). Nuestra guía, Alix de Samaria Tours, un encanto, siempre atenta y servicial, al igual que "El Profesor" nuestro segundo guía. En todo momento facilitan las cosas. Entramos a Playa Cristal, donde en un Estadero comimos un rico pescado. Practicamos snorkel y aún nos quedó tiempo para tomar el sol... Que en aquellos lares !aprieta! de verdad.

Buenos días, agradecemos dedicarnos parte de su tiempo para dejarnos este lindo comentario. Es para nosotros un verdadero placer poder servirle; trabajamos día a día para hacer de su viaje una maravillosa experiencia.
un viaggio per una spiaggia
, Jan 2020
Organizzazione buona e personale (guide) davvero molto carini e simpatici, la cosa a mio avviso negativa oltre al prezzo elevato è che non ci si può svegliare alle 4 di mattina, fare un viaggio interminabile di andata e di ritorno solo per vedere una spiaggia.. Tra L altro carina ma non indimenticabile. Giro a Santa Marta di un oretta al rientro in tardo pomeriggio a mio parere inutile. Io la sconsiglio

Buon pomeriggio, grazie mille per la tua opinione. Ci impegniamo a rendere il tuo viaggio il più piacevole possibile. Il viaggio è lungo, perché dobbiamo percorrere 2 città costiere per raggiungere finalmente una bellissima riserva naturale di spiagge spettacolari. Ci dispiace che non ti sia piaciuto.
