Sailing to Tayrona with Luis and his team: Unique!
My name is Luis, I am an Economist and I worked as a consultant for more than 20 years. I changed my job for my passion: sailing and enjoying nature, especially the sea. I have been sailing since I was 10 days old, it is a passion inherited from my family and I love transmitting my knowledge of the sea and navigation to the people who accompany me. Since I arrived in Colombia with my family, I have had the opportunity to know the Tayrona in a way that people do not know, from the sea. It is a unique experience that we want to teach you. We are bilingual (Spanish and English) and we love to talk and tell local anecdotes, we will take you to live an unforgettable day. The experience is carried out by Luis or his team. Luis has sailed all his life and Didier (Samario de Nacimiento and a family of fishermen) accompanies him along with Alvaro and Jeison, biologists who love the sea. The Tayrona park closes from October 19 to November 2. We continue sailing other routes
