Tayrona National Park (Colombia)

Submitted by on Thursday, 14 October 2010No Comment

In the department of Magdalena, just 34 km from the lovely city of Santa Marta, lies the Tayrona National Park – a sanctuary of nature and archaeological remains that invite an encounter with oneself. Mangrove swamps, corals, algae prairies, thorny scrubland, and magical dry, humid, and cloud forests proliferate and are home to a surprising variety of vegetal and animal species that bear witness to life.

These 12,000 land and 3,000 marine hectares were proclaimed in 1969 for their great biological and archaeological value. Prior to the Spanish Conquest, this was the land of the Tayrona indigenous people, who left significant evidence of their way of life in Pueblito Chairama and other sites. Temperatures range from 25˚C to 32˚C, and altitudes, from zero to nine meters above sea level. There are two rainy periods: from May to June and from September to November.
