Just a few minutes walk close to Teiku, there is a beautiful national park where the indigenous tribe of the Tairona used to live. Some descendants of this tribe still live there. 

The combination of magnificent beaches and lush jungle vegetation turn it into a must visit. If you're lucky, you'll see different animals, such as monkey, snakes and many more. We recommend to visit the park for few days and spend the night on the beach in a hammock.

The Lost City Trek –
Ciudad Perdida

The Lost City or ‘Ciudad Perdida’, is an ancient city and sacred site of the Tairona Civilization. It once covered the whole area of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta.

The city is estimated to date back to 800 AD and had around 8000 inhabitants. It is buried deep in the Colombian jungle and wasn’t rediscovered by foreigners until 1972.

You can visit the Lost City in a four to five day hike.

The trek offers a unique opportunity to connect with nature, see the ancient ruins of a Pre-Columbian civilization and pass the land of the Kogui. 

The trail follows a river for almost the entire length, so you can cool off in the water regularly and visit small waterfalls where you can see hummingbirds, butterflies and colorful tropical birds.
