- Duration: Full day
Commence hiking along a pathway that leads to Pueblito. This snaking pathway leads through the foothills offering up spectacular views on its climbs broken only by the chatter of birdsong and bring one to areas with immense rocks, exuberant vegetation until reaching an approximate altitude of 200 metres.
Arrival at Pueblito an important cultural place for the Tayrona people. The tropical flora and eerie silence seem appropriate to the setting of the ruins of terraces, homes, bridges, stairways and architectural achievements all of which are silent witnessed to the Tayrona civilization.
Speak with some local indigenous people and learn more about their culture. Currently only one Tayrona family lives here but the complex architecture is evident due to the canal system, the aqueduct, stone bridges and stairways which lead to the beach. Walk a further two hours to Playa Cabo San Juan de Guía where you can relax or swim in the waters of this protected beach. After lunch, 45 more minutes’ walk to Cañaveral.
This tour can depart from Santa Marta, Taganga or from accommodation within the park
