La Boquilla

Artisanal fishing tour with natives

Tour Details

Fishing is a way of life for the natives of La Boquilla, an Afro-Colombian community of fishermen who, every morning onboard their canoes, enter the calm waters of Juan Polo and the Virgin Swamp to bring home to their families the catch of the day, a tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation.

Learn traditional techniques and be a traditional fisherman for one day. Feel the tranquility of this beautiful ecosystem. Set up fishing traps and throw the nets into the water!
