If the timing isn't on your side, staying in the park would be a reasonable option. Find three accommodation options below:

 Prices: From COP 600.000- COP 1.500.000 (USD 160-360)

For budget-friendly options, camping is ideal. However, not all beaches allow camping, so be sure to choose the designated areas such as Cabo San Juan, Playa Arrecife, Playa Cañaveral, Bahía Concha, Playa Brava, and Bahía Castillete.


One of the Tayrona beauties lies in the freedom to choose where you want to sleep. Each option offers a unique advantage. Camping in tents is a perfect alternative for those seeking a connection with nature while maintaining privacy and shelter. You can choose whether: to bring your own tent and sleeping bag, or rent them in the Tayrona camping area.  

Price: From COP 100.000-1500000 (USD 26-38)


If you want to completely experience Tayrona’s natural beauty, hammocks are a fantastic alternative in the Playa Arrecife area. It’s a budget-friendly choice. 

However, it is important to understand that not everyone is a good fit for hammock sleeping. Remember that you won’t have as much privacy as you would in a tent or cabin. Mosquitoes can also be a nuisance, and comfort might be lacking for some.

Price: From COP 70. 000-100. 000 (USD 18-26)
