Beautiful nature retreat
Marianna_S, May 2022
This is the best experience in Cartagena. So serene and beautiful. The guides are patient. Getting to catch the fish with the net is difficult but fun. Crabbing was also fun and the crab was cooked for us at the end of the tour.

The Mangroves

Big Thanks To Javier, our guide for Canoe Trip in the Mangroves. On our recent trip to Cartagena we decided to take 3 hour Canoe trip in the Mangroves. We were picked up by Javier from our hotel just on time. Our guide created such a friendly and flexible atmosphere. The tour was very interesting and informative. We learnt a lot about mangroves and wild life surrounding them, 3 hours just flew by. Highly recommend for everybody.
