Rich in both ecological and archaeological wonders, a trip to Taironaka is a fascinating opportunity to uncover the remains of the pre-Columbian Tayrona civilisation which lie amongst the flora and fauna of the Tayrona National Park.
Leaving in the morning for a full day of travelling and exploring, you’ll head towards the Tayrona National Park which nestles in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. A beautiful journey, this takes you across the Piedras, Mendihuaca, Guachaca, Buritaca and Don Diego Rivers before arriving at Taironaka.
Surrounded by tropical forest, the stairs, terraces, pathways, aqueduct and ceremonial house of Taironaka offer an insight into a past world, though one continued in many ways by the descendents of the Tayrona, the indigenous Kogui who still live in the area. A small museum displays items collected from Taironaka, including urns, flutes, axes, ceremonial dishes and arrows.
For active visitors, optional kayaking or hiking can be arranged to guide you deeper into the lush surrounds of the forest with its exceptional birdlife, flora and fauna. We would recommend taking comfortable light clothing and walking shoes, a hat, swimming costume, sun block, insect repellent, water and snacks.
