Day 2 in Cartagena was amazing, we visited a private island owned by a guest of David and Cara's wedding. 4 luxurious speed boats picked us up from a jetty on the coast of Cartagena and sailed out about 40 minutes away from the mainland. We jumped out of the boats onto a secluded beach surrounded by mangroves. 80 chairs were set out around tables under small pagodas in the water. There were guys with big crates of cray fish that were chucked on bbq's there were also free flowing Cuba Libres (Rum and Coke with a dash of lime) which went down a treat! The shallows were peppered with star fish and there were hermit crabs racing around everywhere. After a while we were taken in groups by boat to the private island which was extremely peaceful, a stark contrast to the party going on at the secluded beach!
Words can't really describe the atmosphere so check out the videos and pictures...
