Roughly an hour from Cartagena, the city of San Basilio de Palenque feels a world away. The city is a hub of Afro-Colombian culture, and has its own distinct art, food, and language that draw together elements of Colombian, Spanish, and African traditions. This tour not only streamlines transportation to the somewhat remote town, but also includes a guided walking tour packed with interesting information.
  • San Basilio de Palenque tour from Cartagena
  • Learn about the city’s Afro-Colombian culture on a walking tour
  • Typical lunch included for a chance to try local favorites
  • All transportation with hotel pickup and drop-off included

This tour needs to be revamped. In the description people need to be advised first how long the journey is. It takes almost 2 hours to get to the location. Once there, you are hustled from beginning to end. I did love hearing about history but not in this fashion
