What to expect

This tour takes place in La Boquilla, where you’ll find mainly Afro-Colombian fisher families. This area represents a big contrast with the heart of Cartagena, but that is precisely what makes this excursion so exciting and appealing to adventurous souls.

At La Boquilla there are two big lagoons: the Cienaga de Juan Polo and the Cienaga de la Virgen. Here, you can find all sorts of fish, such as Sábalo (shad), Mojarra (common two-banded sea bream), Pargo negro (Ocean-Bass), Lebranche (Mullet), mainly bream and perch species, as well as snails, clams, shrimps and crawfish.

When you arrive at La Boquilla, canoes and fishers will be waiting for you to head to the lagoons. On the boats, you'll hear stories from the local fishermen while they'll teach you different fishing methods. You'll learn how to use a fishing line, how to throw the fishing net and how to set up traps to catch crawfish. And, just if you were wondering, you can get the fish that you catch. After the trip, you'll enjoy a cold coconut drink at La Boquilla beach, and if you want, you can prepare the fish you caught at a restaurant under the instruction of a local cook for an additional charge.
