In order to preserve its natural environment, the Tayrona Park will close its doors to the public for a month. A decision made by the natives of the Sierra Nevada, who will perform spiritual cleansing rituals and will thank and strengthen the presence of nature in this zone.
National Parks makes sure that these recesses are beneficial for the place, since, in previous cases, it was possible to observe the presence of the mountain lion or the jaguar, animals that live in the area but are not usually visible in the presence of tourists.
But not all the parties involved in the administration of Tayrona Park agreed with the closure, Omar García, president of Cotelco, affirms that the date is not the best for closing the park because February is the month in which the park receives hundreds of tourists from South America.
