Add To Plan

Follow the sacred Nine Stones Path through densely forested Tayrona National Park, while a guide points out the indigenous species of exotic plants and animals.

Depart from the pier and drive northeast toward Tayrona National Park, which sits at the foot of the world’s highest coastal mountain range. Like Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta National Park, which lies farther east, Tayrona is so revered for its ecosystem and cultural content that UNESCO declared it a Biosphere Reserve of Man and Humanity.

Upon arriving, you will follow the Nine Stones Path, accompanied by a guide that will point out the nine oval stones along the way and why the Tayrona culture believes them to be sacred. The guide will also show you the most intriguing species of plants and animals that flourish in the park’s sprawling equatorial rainforest.

You may encounter dusky titi monkeys scurrying about the trees and collared peccaries hunkered down in the shade or rooting around the leaf litter for berries and nuts. Birds are also abundant and the more than 200 avian species include the brightly colored Caribbean toucan and numerous types of parrots, which often fly overhead squawking.

Following the ecological walk, you will have time to laze about Piscina Beach, enjoying a refreshing beverage while taking in the spectacular scenery. The more adventurous may wish to take a dip in the ocean. A jumble of giant boulders dots the shoreline, making for a memorable photo or an adventurous climb. After relaxing here for an hour or so, you will drive back to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 1-hour of moderate to strenuous walking, plus any additional at the guests’ discretion during time at the beach. There will be uneven and natural terrain to negotiate as well as sandy surfaces. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests or those with mobility concerns. Participants should be in good physical condition. Light-weight clothing; swim suit worn under clothing for those who wish to swim at the beach; sun cap; sunglasses; sunscreen; a bottle of water and a towel from the ship; and flat, comfortable hiking/walking shoes with a non-slip sole are recommended. Those who choose to take part in any water activities do so at their own risk and responsibility.
