Colombia is a country of dizzying variety. This tour will introduce you to the fascinating blend of adventures offered within Colombia’s borders. Tayrona National Park really has to be seen to be believed. A haven of golden sands, wild jungles and untamed seas, it’s a traveler’s dream and one that, fortunately for those in the know, remains firmly off the beaten track. On a short break to Tayrona you can stay in the luxury ecohabs there (complete with relaxing spa options), in the beautiful cabañas or in a hammock; each option feels distinctly like paradise as the sound of wildlife and the sea lapping against the ocean is all you can hear at night time. You’ll enjoy walking along the near-deserted beaches, seeing the unbelievable rock formations that punctuate the horizon, and the stunning mountainscapes that are dense with jungle. A short break to Tayrona is the perfect opportunity to escape. All this and much, much more on your trip to Colombia with See Colombia Travel.
