Enjoy a wonderful trip in the middle of beautiful mangroves in an original wooden canoe managed by a fisherman from a local village.

After your mangroves adventure, there is nothing better than to connect with the Afro-Colombian locals; to feel their culture, to listen, and to learn the rhythms of the folk music of this region, such as Cumbia, El Bullerengue, Mapalé, and La Champeta.

Discover the true rhythm of the Afro-Colombian Caribbean with a drum workshop taken by people from the drum school.

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn about the real history of the Afro-Colombian community through the traditional beating of the drums that have lived for centuries.

Following the rhythms of the Gaitas (flutes) and Maracas, you’ll learn the theory and correct methods of how to stripe, thump, and knock the musical instrument that was here before all others. 

Pick up a few moves on the dance floor to match the style of music and enjoy a presentation by the professionals.
