This tour leads us to the small fishermen village La Boquilla and we highly recommend it for nature lovers. On the beach of La Boquilla, we will see two very different facets of the city, since this is one of the poorest parts
of Cartagena but 5-star hotels and luxurious apartments are built here.
After arriving in La Boquilla (about 30 minutes from the city center), we will get on our canoe and cross the mangrove forest and the lagoon Cienaga de Juan Polo. We go through some natural mangrove tunnels (Tunnel of Friendship, Love, and Luck). At the lagoon, we will see fishermen working. The perfect word for describing this gorgeous scenario is peace. The mangrove forest offers great flora and fauna. Among other things, we may see different species of birds and if we are lucky we might see a coon or a green parrot may appear on the riverbanks.
After the canoe tour, we will receive a cold coconut. Then, we will walk a bit through the village and along the beach whereas our guide will tell us more about the daily life of the people that live mainly of fishing.
We will get to a restaurant, where we can have lunch (optional) and try the typical local dish: fried fish with coconut rice, plantain, and salad. After lunch, we can take a dip in the Caribbean Sea or relax on the beach. Transfer back by taxi
