Itinerary Description

Located on the edge of the majestic Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta, the Tayrona park is one of the most beautiful ecological sanctuaries and richest archaeological zones in Colombia. Framed by lush and virgin forests, its protected terrains have long been recognized as some of the world’s most beautiful and exotic landscapes. Formed by the glaciers and snowy peaks of Sierra Nevada, its rivers, which ultimately drain into the Caribbean Sea, nurture lush environments inhabited by a variety of birds, monkeys and herds of Indian settlements. The park’s diverse climates offer a unique backdrop to a wide range of attractions from white sand beaches bounded by huge rocks inside the sea, mangroves, and coral reefs in the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean sea to dry forests to the highest coastal mountains the world. This natural paradise, with an area of 15,000 hectares, is considered one of the most important ecological reserves in South America. There are many amazing spots full of nature to go surfing. We will bring you to best break depending on your surf level. We are locals and we know very well the conditions. There is good surfing all year around but don´t expect to come here and score big powerful waves. It is more an easy-going surfing for intermediates and beginners. Most swells are 3-5 FT range but it can get double this during the hurricane season between August and November.

Additionally to all the awesome surfing you can do, you can also participate in all kinds of different activities like jungle hiking, discovering waterfalls, visiting natural parks & indigineous villages as well as SUP tours through mangroves. This trip has been designed by Colombian surfers with more than 20 years of experience.
