The Tayrona Park was created in 1964 by the Instituto Colombiano para la reforma agraria INCORA (Colombian Institute for Agrarian Reform) through resolution number 191 declaring the creation of the park to guarantee the reserve and conservation of the ecosystem. The resolution was later modified in the Accord 04 of 1969 and approved by resolution 292 of 1969 by the INDERENA.
