We start with a guided panoramic walk of approximately one hour through this iconic neighborhood before heading to a bar in the area where a mixologist will receive us and provide the guidelines for the rum tasting, which consists of pairing 8 kinds of rums typical of Colombian culture accompanied by chocolate from the land.

Breakfast at the Hotel | For the Culture Tour - San Basilio de Palenque (Wear T-Shirts)


San Basilio de Palenque, is one of the walled communities called Palenque’s, which were founded by escaped slaves as a refuge in the seventeenth century. Of the many Palenque’s that existed in former times, only San Basilio has survived until the present day. It developed into a unique cultural space, and it encompasses social, medical, and religious practices as well as musical and oral traditions, many of which have African roots.  Today’s visit will take you to tour the streets of this peaceful little village stopping to chat with locals about music, legends and centennial stories, to dance to the rhythm of authentic Afro-Caribbean sounds and to taste recipes from the gastronomic tradition that inspired one of the best cookbooks of the world.   After our activities in the town and sharing with the community, we transfer back to our hotel in Cartagena.

Breakfast at the Hotel | Boat Ride to Rosario Islands & Chiva Bus

It is time to step outside the walls of Cartagena and experience the beauty of The Rosario Islands. Located about 30 miles away from the city we transfer to the port to embark on a 60 minute ride to the island were you will have time to explore or just relax.

In the evening, we experience the nightlife in Cartagena by taking a Rumba en Chiva ('Party in a Chiva") on an exciting ride in a typical CHIVA (open bus). Live music and all the rum you can drink can only make this an experience not to be missed.
