Full description
Journey from Cartagena to the nearby fishing village of La Boquilla. Experience the atmosphere of a place that has retained its Afro-Caribbean heritage from the days when the area was once a haven for freed slaves. Meet locals who are proud of their African ancestry and children feel the rhythm of the percussion in each movement. Boat through the mangrove forest and keep your eyes peeled for the amazing animals native to the region. Take in the unique surroundings of the swamp as you pass through bright tunnels formed by dense foliage overhead. See the fishermen pulling in their nets. When you return from your mangrove adventure, dig in to a delicious lunch of typical Afro-Caribbean cuisine. Enjoy the flavors of coconut and other local seasonings common to Caribbean gastronomy mixed with fresh, locally-caught seafood. Take a short walk on the beach to digest your lunch before heading back to Cartagena.

Our tour guide Reuben was awesome. The mangroves tour was a great experience and I would definitely want to do it again. After the boat ride we had an authentic Columbian lunch and that was some of the best food we had in Columbia hands down. I recommend going to this tour.
