Fishing with locals in Boquilla

Fishing with locals in Cartagena is done for those who want to get closer to the local people and know more about the story of their lives. Every morning the people of the town of La Boquilla get up to go fishing.

La Boquilla is home to many Afro-descendant families whose main source of income is fishing, in its two large lagoons: the Ciénaga de Juan Polo and the Ciénaga de la Virgen. You can catch fish such as :

  • Sea bass (bass).
  • Tarpon.
  • Mojarra
  • Black snapper
  • Lebranche
  • Clams, shrimp, crabs and lobsters.

The fishermen await us at La Boquilla to take us in their canoes, in the company of our guide. For about 2-3 hours, we will fish in the lagoon, do not forget to wear a hat, sunscreen and mosquito repellent.

Why choose this tour?
  1. Just imagine yourself, fishing with locals in the beautiful mangroves of Cartagena, with excellent weather and excellent people!
  2. Boquilla is one of the places out of the spotlight of tourism, where the experience with the friendly locals will stay in your memories forever.
  3. You will know how to use the fishing line, organize the fishing net and place the traps to catch shrimp and crabs.
  4. You can keep your fishing and if you wish we can go to one of the fishermen’s houses, to cook and eat together.
