Tayrona National Park is a must see of Colombia. Located in the North, it covers the foothills of Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta as they meet the Caribbean Coast. For us it was Paradise!

These images capture the beauty of the park, focusing on our arrival, the beaches, the jungle and Pueblito - an archaeological site with terraces and structures built by the Tayrona civilisation.
