San Basilio de Palenque bears testimony to a moving and inspiring history through memorials and Afro-Colombian music and dance styles.


A specialized guide from the community will teach us some basic words in his language, Palenquero. With the help of a translator, we'll learn the exciting and brave history of this town. We'll also learn how to play some of its instruments recognizing warning sounds they used to defend its freedom.

Breakfast is included today.

 Day 4: Friday, December 9 

Beach Day - Isla San Pedro de Majagua

Today's destination: The picture-perfect Caribbean island Isla Grande. We're talking clear waters, white sandy beaches and palm trees. Upon arrival at the island we'll be greeted with a delicious fruit cocktail. Today's program is to relax, soak in that Caribbean sun and enjoy the activities offered on the island (not included) like e.g. snorkeling. Our stay on the island includes a typical lunch featuring coconut rice and fish and a dessert.

Breakfast and lunch are included today.

Mud Volcano

The Volcano of Totumo is a real natural spa! We'll have the opportunity to hop into the warm mud pool. Although the crater is 500 meters deep, you won't sink into the thick mud. You'll float. Opt for a massage in the mud pool by the local women and a good rinse afterwards (not included)!


Evening Party Bus

Ready to soak up that infectious Caribbean zest for life? Hop aboard a colorful Chiva bus, sip traditional Antaño Rum and tap your feet to the cheerful rhythms of Vallenato live music. We'll stop for some savoury Cartagena snacks along the way (included in the tour).
