How to get to Zaino?
To get to El Zaino, take a bus from "Carrera 9" (9th Avenue) crossing Calle 11 (11th Street) in the centre of Santa Marta. The bus trip takes about an hour.
Any bus that passes by Tayrona Park is sure to stop and let people off here, as it is the main entrance. When you arrive, before you can enter the park, you will need to attend an informative presentation in which you will be given information and rules about visiting the park. Once you have purchased your ticket to enter the park and passed through the Park’s gate, you can catch a communal shuttle/taxi called a “colectivo” that will bring you to the head of the trail, saving you about 45 minutes of walking.
