Which is the faster way to reach famous beaches in Tayrona National Park from Baranquilla or Santa Marta? My guidebook is short on details but mentions: Arrecife, Aranilla, La Picina and Playa Cristal. I will be staying in Barranquilla but can easily take the bus to Santa Marta or other jump-off point.
There seems to be a road partly there but then maybe it could take an hour or two of walking. Could one take a boat to one of the beaches? Where would it start and arrive? Approximate costs would be nice to know too.
