We did not know what to expect exactly from our "Fishing with Locals" trip, and we couldn't have been more delighted and awed by our experience. We were picked up at the hotel as promised, and Manuel, our guide/facilitator, was pleasant and informative. When we...More

If you are expecting to see a variety of wildlife on this tour don't book as it is very poor and just a tourist boat ride through the mangroves. In the middle of the tour, a 'fisherman' waits and shows you the tiny crabs he...More

Visited the mangrove as part of a cruise excursion and we really enjoyed it. Loved the old looking boats, loved the fact that the people were genuine locals, loved the quiet and serenity of the tour through the mangrove. We stopped at one point to...More

Ecotours provides a trustworthy tour of the mangroves found in a small village outside of Cartagena, La Boquilla. The tour is a half day tour of the peaceful mangroves where you will see wildlife, possibly fisherman, and a different side of Colombia than the cruise...More

Eco tours did a fantastic job. The mangroves were amazing and very authentic. The walking tour was a bit short. Don't plan on doing any shopping. There is not enough time for that. Just window shopping.

I took the bird watching tour at sunrise and highly recommend. It was SUCH a pleasant morning and a nice escape from the bustle of the city. The tour began mainly with mangrove education rather than bird discussions. But it was great to learn about...More

Ecotours sent a taxi for us. You can also take a taxi to there but I am not sure how easy it will be to find the place and the village may not be the safest place around. Ask the Ecotours people.
