The 15 Most Incredible National Parks in Colombia

Situated in the northwest corner of South America, Colombia is a paradise for anyone seeking an escape from civilization. 

Colombia is the second-most biodiverse country on Earth – trailing only Brazil – thanks to an astounding breadth of flora and fauna spanning rainforest, desert, coral reefs, and mountain ranges.

Read on for our definitive guide to the best national parks in Colombia.

Tayrona National Park

There are diving and snorkeling opportunities at the coral reefs along the coast, but take local advice and mind the strong undertow. 



Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta National Park

This is a rugged trek and requires a good level of physical fitness. 


Macuira National Park

The obvious draw here is the dunes, on which you can sandboard, but there are also forests and cacti which can’t be found elsewhere in Colombia. 


Corales del Rosario y San Bernardo National Park

Although a beautiful beach getaway, the coral reefs are deteriorating due to sediment from the mouth of the Magdalena River. 


Utría National Park

Travelers come for diving, mangrove forests, deserted beaches, and boat excursions to catch sight of humpback whales and dolphins.
