I know it has been a really really long time, sorry for that...
So, a month ago, we visited Tayrona national park, close to Santa Marta. The park is very scenic but there is a lot of tourists. The entrance fee is hefty and accommodation is very expensive if you take into account how basic it is.
Waves and current in Tayrona are very strong so swimming is not to be recommended on most beaches, there is a handful that is safe for swimming though. Signs will warn you.
Arecifes and more still Cabo san Juan de viajero are packed beaches. Walking a couple of hours more to reach Playa Blanca is really worth it. There is only few people there but accommodation is really basic, only hammocks available!
