  • Tayrona has to be limapiado? Yes. That one must close it month? NOOOOO. If pass it the same as me, with the Tayrona Park closed Minca is the best alternative. Visit a coffee farm, nice view of Santa Marta, hike in the mountains with nature. Let's say that when Tayrona is closed, no one knows what to do (that includes tourists and tourism companies). On the way to Minca blue wells offer: a lot of people, noise, dirt... Take much repellent and eye with the GNATS biting you equal and are voracious.

  • You must walk to the Sierra natural and magical place where time has stopped. The landscape and vegetation are beautiful, many birds and animals are heard in general. Very important is a guide, comfortable shoes, water and insect repellent.

  • It is and will be one of the sites most beautiful on the planet. I know well its foothills, up to 500 to 800 meters. The Koguis, that much lower to Santa Marta, Valledupar, have taken care of this imposing mountain that I prop to the sea.
