Tierra Bomba is an island located only 10 minutes from Bocagrande – Cartagena. The tour to the village of Tierrabomba will take you far, very far away from Cartagena’s opulence. It is a real immersion into Cartagena’s real world.
Tierra Bomba Island has four villages where a total of 11.000 people live in. Our tour will take you to the village of Tierra Bomba where 3.500 people live and 1.000 of them are children. With our partner and local NGO, you will walk in the streets, get to know the work and projects of the association, understand the problems of the community and support their job. Also, you will do a graffiti tour in the village before heading to a beautiful beach, Playa Linda, to enjoy the rest of the afternoon.
Before taking this tour it is important to be aware of the international poverty index. Indeed, more than 50% of the homes of Tierra Bomba Island are in conditions of extreme poverty. Although Tierra Bomba is located next to the mainland of Cartagena, it lacks basic services. This situation and other social-historical deficiencies affect the quality of life and education of the population. The lack of school attendance leaves children and young people with enough free time to do unproductive leisure activities. Our local partner and NGO work to eradicate poverty and offers new development opportunities. They help the community with sports, education, and entrepreneurship. By strengthening children to obtain a solid education and additional training such as water sports (surf), they open up new perspectives and increase their opportunities. When you book this tour with us you are directly supporting these projects.
This tour is available in Spanish and English and is suitable for anyone. (French is available upon request)
