Enjoy exploring the mangrove forests on a guided, private tour in Cartagena's La Boquilla village. Your friendly Cartagena cruise excursion guide will pick you up right from your Cartagena cruise pier. It is a lovely 25-minute drive from the pier to the mangroves at La Boquilla. You will pass through the city of Cartagena on the way there.

Your English-speaking guide will be giving you a lot of information and interesting facts about the area, Cartagena and Colombia while you are on board the air-conditioned transportation. The guide will also be pointing out the sights as you pass by.

When you arrive at the small village of La Boquilla, you will be helped aboard your wooden canoe. The canoes hold 5 passengers and will be driven by one of the village captains. The ride through the mangroves is awesome. The name La Boquilla means the Nozzle. The village is so named because of the small, narrow channels and the tunnels formed by the overhanging mangrove trees. You will pass by Virgin Lagoon, John Polo Lagoon, Fisherman Island, and the mangrove tunnels known as Love, Happiness, and Remembrance.

There are numerous photo opportunities and plenty of flora and fauna to capture with your camera. Some of the many bird species you might see include Pied Billed Grebe, Neotropical Cormorant, Herons and Egrets, Bare-Faced Ibis, Ruddy Ducks, Vermillion Cardinal, and many more species. Your boat captain will point out things along the way. This area has been used in many movie films.

When you return from the canoe ride, you will have the opportunity to stretch your legs and walk around the small village, meet some of the local residents and see the way the folks live. Your transportation will take you back to the pier afterward.

     5/5  (Visited on May 2016)
We had a very nice time on this tour and get to learn so much about Colombia. The canoe ride is very educational and all along we saw lots of different bird species, our guide was very attentive and each time he saw something he would let us know so we could take photos. I just wish the weather had been nicer, but I guess the overcast skies did make it cooler. We were abit concerned that the tour would be more physically demanding but it was not...it was relaxing and fun. Best coconut water I have ever tried, so refreshing!!

 HI ShoreExcursioneer, I booked you guys when I was in Roatan three weeks ago on May 14, to Tabayana Beach. As I was there a few years ago, I returned to the beach for a beautiful time. Your driver was on time, very personable and knowledgeable of the areas. In the future, I will try and book you guys wherever possible if available. Thanks for all your assistance.
