Your private driver will be waiting for you at the lobby of Casa San Agustin and will drive you to your next destination in the Tayrona Region.
The Tayrona National Park is located 4.5 hours driving from Cartagena, between white sand beaches and the foothills of the impressive Sierra Nevada. It is famous for its lush vegetation, beautiful virgin beaches and extraordinary biodiversity. The Tayrona region gets its name from the ancient Tayrona tribe, which ruled this area for many years. The original Tayrona civilization almost disappeared once the Spanish colonizers settled in Latin America in the 17th century. Part of it remains strong and alive through 4 indigenous tribes in the region who still maintain the culture, language, religion and traditions they inherited from the original Tayronas.
After having settled in your hotel room, drive to the Don Diego region (approximately 30 minutes). After a 20-minute walk into the jungle, you will arrive at a river bank from where you will float down a crystalline river all the way down to the ocean. Along the way you will find exuberant vegetation, exotic birds and howler monkeys that will make this “mini river safari” worth it.
