La Boquilla Cartagena is one of the most popular places in Cartagena for locals, but not much for tourists, although it is one of the most popular ecological tourist attractions, as is the mangrove tour in which visitors are immersed in through the mangrove jungle through canoes made by hand by the natives to discover the tunnels that are naturally formed through the intertwining of the branches and roots of the trees and that allow the crossing of species such as raccoons, snakes, crabs, termites among many others.
It is also well known that mangroves are a refuge and sanctuary for animals, especially for migratory birds that go from one country to another at the beginning of a certain season, to reach other regions where they can cover their food and reproductive.
Depending on the season you will be able to see birds such as: White Stork (Ciconia ciconia), Black Kite (Milvus migrans), Booted Eagle (Aquila pennata), Western Marsh Harrier (Circus aeruginosus), Barn Swallow (Hirundo rustica).
This sector of La Boquilla Cartagena is also known for its quiet beaches, where locals usually go to enjoy a day at the beach instead of the crowded beaches of Bocagrande or Castillo Grande where tourists normally go.
La Boquilla Cartagena is now becoming an investment place for those who are looking for a place to buy a property near the sea or with an ocean view, which in addition to being able to rent it as AirBnb you can also use it every time you want to visit the city from Cartagena and vacation.
