    Mountain Biking in Tierrabomba

    This 3-km ride across Cartagena’s biggest island will take you off the beaten track through the dry forests that still covers much of the island of Tierrabomba, so take full advantage and stop to admire the birds and other wildlife you meet on route.

    As well as enjoying the nature trails, you'll see a totally different side of Cartagena's rich military history including a visit to the impressive maritime fortifications of San Fernando Castle and Angel San Rafael.

    These monumental military achievements, linked by tunnels, were the first line of defense against English and French pirates during the 17th and 18th centuries.

    In terms of the level of work out, we'll leave it to you to decide how tough you want it to be and also how much you want to reward yourself on arrival in Bocachica, a small village on the other side of the island.

    You can choose from a typical lunch on the beach or a gourmet treat at one of our favourite beach clubs.

    There's also the chance to hop off the bikes, meet the locals and soak up some of the local rhythms on what promises to be a great day out for friends and family. 

    This isn't the most strenuous of mountain bike rides. In terms of difficulty it probably scores a 5/6 out of 10, but it is only recommended for visitors in good physical shape.

    People are advised to dress appropriately and cover up with light-weight sports gear or apply plenty of sun block to avoid sun burn.

    If you want a VIP (less strenuous) version of this tour you can upgrade with the option of eating and spending the afternoon at one of our favourite beach clubs and returning to the city by boat.
