Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta Natural National Park
The Sierra Nevada mountains are an ancestral territory regulated and protected by both the Colombian government and the indigenous authorities.
Considered the tallest coastal mountain range in the world, its snowy peaks, which reach 5,775 meters (3.6 mi) above sea level, are born in the Caribbean Sea.
Thanks to the variety of ecosystems that exist in these mountains, its cultural wealth, and unique beauty, this is a unique territory that can’t be found anywhere else in the world.
Deep within these mountains lies the Lost City, or Teyuna Archeological Park, a place of special beauty and great cultural significance considered to be a sacred site for the indigenous peoples of the Sierra.
It is necessary to contact the Colombian Institute of Anthropology and History (ICANH for its Spanish acronym) to visit the Lost City, which can be done through a third-party tour operator facilitated by the hotel.
