Staying on Playa Brava in Tayrona National Park (Beach Hut Tour) // Colombia Travel Vlog

Staying in a beach hut on Playa Brava in Tayrona National Park was the highlight of our time in Colombia! Playa Brava is a lesser-known beach in Tayrona National Park, making it the BEST place to stay the night! There is just one company you can book a beach hut with, and they are called Ecolodge Playa Brava Teyumakke. Luckily, you can book these accommodations online which is very unusual for Tayrona as most of the accommodations in other beaches like Cabo San Juan are first come first served.

After a few hours hiking through the jungle, we arrived at Playa Brava to check in for our night in our beach hut. Playa Brava is a gorgeous beach, made even more beautiful by how few people visit it! If you are visiting Playa Brava, we highly recommend spending at least one night because it is quite a journey to get to. If you do not have the time to spend a night inside Tayrona National Park, we would suggest visiting Cabo San Juan instead of Playa Brava. It is much busier, but it is easier to access which makes it a much better choice if you are visiting Tayrona National Park on a day trip.

In this video we show you a tour of our beach hut on Playa Brava and enjoy an incredibly relaxing couple of hours on our nearly-private beach. And then on day 2 we started our hike to Cabo San Juan to see Tayrona National Park's most famous beach! As you can see in the video, this beach is absolutely stunning. It is much more commercialized and busier than Playa Brava (which is why we chose to book a beach hut on Playa Brava and not Cabo San Juan), but the area is truly picture-perfect and absolutely worth a visit!

We hope you enjoy watching our stay on Playa Brava in Tayrona National Park as much as we enjoyed experiencing it! If you are headed to Colombia soon, we cannot recommend this beach hut stay more highly. Our only regret is not staying for two nights!
