When someone talks about an island known as “the end of all rush”, you probably would imagine a paradise where you get to relax and forget about everything work related.
Well. BINGO!, you’re right. Múcura Island is ideal if what you’re looking for is a place with pale sandy beaches and turquoise Caribbean waters. You’ll be able to relax, rest and forget about all your problems.
If you ever heard about Múcura Island, its breathtaking landscapes and variety of flora before, and you’re only missing to see it for yourself, we will tell you about the various routes available to this little Caribbean paradise. We know information may be misleading and confusing, so here it is.
In order to get there, you will have to depart from one of these three places:
You will have to hop on a boat from the “La Bodeguita” dock. The trip lasts about two hours as Múcura Island is 50 kilometers away from Cartagena (from all three locations, this is the longest route). Please take into consideration that the only departure time is at 8:30 in the morning and it is crucial that you let to know your captain on which island you will be staying. This trip has a cost of $100,000 COP per passenger.
2. San Onofre, "Rincón del Mar"
Boats leave the dock at 8 in the morning. It is important you know that boats leaving form this location are not designed as passenger vessels, they are, in fact, fishing boats. These boats are not regulated by maritime authorities (meaning there is no insurance coverage in case of accidents). The trip lasts for about 40 minutes and costs $25,000 COP per passenger.
3. Santiago de Tolú
Transportation is offered by nautical clubs. The only departure time is at 8:30 in the morning, with the trip lasting about an hour and a half. Please remember that you will have to book your trip beforehand as during peak season there is more demand than supply. Fares go for about $40,000 COP during the off season and $60,000 COP during peak season.
That’s it! We hope this information proves valuable to you as you plan your visit and may help you in experiencing one of Colombia’s most marvelous and hidden places.
