What you'll do

1. To enjoy the very best of this experience with beautiful weather, we recommend to start at 8:00 am. We’ll pick you up at your location, drive southeast of Cartagena for about 1 hour. 2. Enjoy the travel we'll pass by local neighbourhoods, the Industrial area and villages that surround the city to finally head to the African Village of San Basilio de Palenque. 3. A native guide will welcome us with live music, coffee and a shot of ñeque (the local tequila from Palenque). 4. We’ll explore the village on foot, meet its most remarkable people, indulge in their culture, history, gastronomy and art. 5. After a nice walk, we’ll enjoy a delicious typical lunch cooked by a native member, who will kindly invite us to their house to live it like a local. 6. Finally, we’ll end up trying their most traditional sweets as a dessert, having the opportunity to be part of the cooking process. 7. We’ll be ready to take you back in town.
