All this contrasts with the park bays, Neguanje and Playa Cristal where the tropical forest is the driest and the turquoise sea is of impressive transparency. It is an ideal site for scuba diving and snorkelling.

There are also archaeological sites with historically significant ruins and the Tayrona Terraces such as the Tayrona village.
