Mangroves are swamp ecosystems of the incredible diversity that are key for the environmental balance of many tropical coastal areas. This is the place where a big part of the maritime life originates. 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, you will go deeply into the heart of this ecosystem, making stops at small hideaways where biodiversity reveals the treasures that surround this magnificent place.
This tour takes place in La Boquilla; here you’ll find mainly fishing communities of Afro-Colombian families. The contrast between this area and the heart of Cartagena couldn’t be any bigger, but that is exactly what makes this excursion so attractive and appealing to adventurous souls.
