Hi TA friends.
My friend & I are going to Colombia at the end of May.
We love the pictures of Tayrona and the beaches but we just aren't sold on hiking for 3+ hours or what not in the heat, to camp out, and still have to walk to a decent beach, and eat over priced food.
We are planning to spend a night in Santa Marta, Tangana really isn't appealing but we may stop by for a few hours. It looks like a majority of our time will be spent in Palomino. A little bit of time in Minca.
We are both very big into outdoors so it isn't the hiking or the camping that is unappealing just the time vs exertion in the heat for a bad beach value. If that makes any sense.
Also if not, do you recommend anywhere to go in the park that wouldn't involve such a time commitment? Where we could literally do a 'day trip' from SM or Palomino? In and out in the same day? I was told that possibly walking along the beach from the East to West may be better than taking the tourist route.
Thanks so much!
