We booked a two day stay on Tierra Bomba on Airbnb. Our host was lovely and arranged for a boat to transport us to and from the island. The house we stayed in was beautiful. However, it was the only nice house in Punta Arenas....More

So, you’ve come to Cartagena, a city on the beautiful Caribbean Sea and the City’s beaches are disgusting. Like us, you’re really disappointed. All of the tour guides are hawking day trips to Playa Blanca and the Rosario Islands. And, they are 90 minutes by...More
