Sail Through The Manglares On a Canoe!

How well do you know of the mangrove swamps outside of Cartagena? Join us on this tour as we take you on a canoe trip outside of Cartagena to the Manglares in La Boquilla, a unique biodiversity and also the 13th largest mangrove swamp in the world.

Mangroves are a key ecosystem for the environmental balance of many tropical coastal areas. They work as a natural barrier to protect the land from natural disasters and make a unique scenario to be in close contact with nature. This canoe trip will take you through the channels and tunnels formed by dense mangrove swamp forests at Cienaga de la Virgen. Here, we will go deeply into the heart of the ecosystem, making stops at small hideaways where the exuberant biodiversity is the protagonist.

La Boquilla houses mainly families with African origin that live off of fishing. The contrast between this area and the heart of Cartagena couldn’t be any bigger, but that is exactly what makes this tour so attractive and appealing to adventurous souls.


  • Arrive to La Boquilla where canoes and fishermen await to head to the Cienaga de Juan Polo and the Cienaga de la Virgen lagoons.
  • Hear the most amazing stories directly from the local fishermen while on the boat.
  • Slowly navigate into the intricate natural channels formed by the mangrove forest and be surprised by its exuberant biodiversity.
  • Have some refreshing coconut water upon returning to the dock.
