Photo Gallery: Isla Mucura and Punta Faro

Isla Mucura


I was fortunate enough to spend the last few days enjoying the (many) delights of Colombia’s Caribbean coast on Isla Mucura, an island which makes up part of the San Bernando Archipelago. Along with nearby islands Tintipan and Santa Cruz del Islote, Mucura is one of 10 islands that make up the archipelago, and is a pretty wonderful place to while away a couple of sun-kissed days, whilst enjoying a variety of activities such as diving, snorkeling, sea-kayaking and wildlife-watching. My complete inability to stay still for more than an hour meant that I enjoyed all of these activities!

I’ll be bringing you a full trip report from Mucura next week, but for now here’s a photo gallery showing the beauty of Isla Mucura and Hotel Punta Faro, where I was fortunate enough to stay:

Speaking of which, La Chiva Viajera should really slow down...
