DescriptionThis 3-hour canoe trip takes you through the channels and tunnels formed by dense mangrove swamp forests at Cienaga de la Virgen. Head into the heart of the ecosystem by canoe with local fishermen, making stops at small hideaways along the way. Mangroves are a key ecosystem for the environmental balance of many tropical coastal areas, and work as a natural barrier to protect the land from natural disasters. Families of mainly African origin live in La Boquilla and live from fishing. The contrast between this area and the heart of Cartagena could not be more striking, and that is exactly what makes this excursion so appealing.
