Pozos colorados

This is one of the beaches in Santa Marta where the number of visits has increased in recent years; however, the number of people on this beach is lower than in the previous ones. Normally visitors who do not go in family plan, but go to practice some water sport.


Playa cristal

Located in the Tayrona Park in Santa Marta, it is one of the beaches in South America preferred by tourists, according to the results of the TripAdvisor Traveler’s Choice 2019, thanks to its beauty, crystal clear water, white sand and the tranquility that is in it. On this beach you can practice snorkel.


Cabo San Juan

Another of the beaches preferred by tourists who are inside the Tayrona Park. As well as Playa Cristal, it is a quiet place where you can rest and practice snorkeling.


Bahia concha

In this beach located in the Tayrona National Park you can also practice snorkeling, but unlike the previous ones you must take your equipment. This beach is in a recovery process so only 2000 people are allowed per day.



The last on our list, but not the least important. This beach is considered the largest within the Tayrona Park and its central location makes it a strategic place to visit other beaches nearby. In it you can practice diving and snorkeling. The swell of this is a little stronger, so you must be careful.
