When visited the Cocora Valley, I got surprised for the charges to visit the place, I have to add that rules whereas nearby extinguished animal like “Condor” and “Colobris” are at risk as many users take drones to have better pictures and films. Individuals that do not visit the park with guides often abuse the basic rules of respect and cleanness. Supposed Guides are accomplishing the rules, nor protecting animals, the payment of the entry fee is not an added value for the National reserves of Colombia. The main area off the Valle del Cocora is privately owned and from national interest, but it is a shame if you add that the Palma de Cera’s natural habitat is not there only but more in the forest of the cordillera of Colombia

Without a doubt truly one of the really fantastic restaurants in Cartagena! We enjoyed sitting in the fresh air enjoying Mojitos prior to one of the City 's BEST best venues to eat. Located in the Gethsemane section of the city, I cannot say enough good words. Oscar was our waiter and gave us the best service ever! My wife had the Chilean Sea Bass and I enjoyed the famous Angus Burger! OMG, can it be better?! You have for to go! Despite the restrictions due to Covid, everything was excellent and there is NO DOUBT we will go again! If you miss this great restaurant, do not blame me!
