Stop At: San Jacinto, San Jacinto, Bolivar Department
Our tour start after a 2 hour drive from Cartagena, in the town square of San Jacinto, where our local guide will be waiting to show us the museum, where its inhabitants have rebuilt their historical memory, since the time pre-Columbian to the present, showing its crafts, music and traditions, but also its pain with a room committed to the conflict, its causes and the thousand of victims.
The journey continues aboard a 4x4 vehicle (the only way to access) to go into the forest where the farms are located. The peasants are going to tell us the way that they found to support their families with coffee and cocoa, their own version of the facts and like its coffee that grows surrounded by bananas, avocados, cassava and chili, it has the best flavor.
To drink the coffee we will roast it in a pot with a wood fire and we will refine the cocoa with corn as it has been done for centuries in these lands.
