La Ciénaga de Caimanera - Boating Tolú - Colombia

Just fifteen minutes out of town, between Tolú and Coveñas, is a pleasant natural half-fresh and half-salt water lagoon, Ciénaga de Caimanera. Here, you can take a boat around the lagoon, pick and eat raw oysters, spot jaibas (small crabs) scurrying around the exposed roots of the mangrove forest, and see shrimp by the dozen. Most excursions go as far as the floating house, where at sunset you can watch the birds returning to their roosts.
