Tayrona Park, Colombia, covers a vast and incredible area along the northern coast of Colombia. It is home to an abundance of wildlife and some of the most stunning white sand beaches with deep blue waters. None of the Tayrona Park, Colombia hostels are located within the park, but you will find them located along the highway near the three different entrances to the park. You can stay at one of the hostels in Tayrona Park, Colombia; leave your stuff with the friendly hostel staff; and then venture into the park for a day or two to explore without the hassle of a long bus ride from Santa Marta to get there. You can get an early start to make the most of your day and avoid walking in the heat of the day.

Park entrance is quite expensive for foreigners, but is a one-time fee, so it is worth it to spend a couple of days in the park hanging out and getting to know the place. You can organise from the entrance gates to reserve a spot sleeping in a hammock or a tent and pay before you enter the park. Different areas of the park have different prices based on popularity, so ask for all of your options. A word of warning, none of the places appear to have lockers or security for your belongings, so take only what you need and keep all valuables on your person at all times.

The other thing about the park is that food is very expensive to purchase inside of the park. It is worth buying some nonperishable food to take with you for the time that you are in the park to cut down on costs, and also take whatever water you need, as that is also ridiculously expensive in the park.

Whatever you decide, your Tayrona Park, Colombia hostel will have an abundance of knowledge to help you explore this amazing and diverse region.
