The Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta is the highest coastal mountain in the world, including the Caribbean and the eternal snows, geography encompasses all thermal, where all kinds of unique wildlife in the world.

It is also a haven for the latest ethnic descendants of the Tairona Indians, as the Kogi, the Arsarios and Arwacos. There live about 30,000 natives of these ethnic groups, their survival threatened by transculturation and violence. The Sierra Nevada is currently affected by deforestation by settlers, illicit coca and marijuana and the presence of guerrilla and paramilitary groups.

Due to this problem, today can be recommended only tourist-type visits Pueblito (Tayrona National Park) or the Lost City. For other places is essential prior consultation on the state of (dis) order, request permission from Indian authorities (in Valledupar, Santa Marta Nabusimake or, as appropriate) and carefully prepare the trip.
