Aquatic Sports - Other Activity Cabo de Vela - Colombia

During Semana Santa and the December-January holidays, locals open sites renting equipment for different aquatic sports. How about skipping across these crystalline waters on a velero (sailboat) or windsurfing? Gusanos, or giant rubber water worms, are another way to enjoy a trip across the bay.

People also rent out snorkeling gear and offer paseos en lancha, or boat tours around the cape. But to enjoy most of these activities, you’ll have to come when everyone else does.
