How to get there

There are 2 easy to get Acuarimantima. Take your pick!


Option 1: From "Tolu"

Once you’ve arrived in Tolu, go to the marine and ask for the boat service to Acuarimantima, Isla Titipan. The boat service (approx. $35.000) runs daily at 8 a.m. so make sure to be on time. You must reserve your ticket from the day before since space is limited. If you are coming from another city like Cartagena, Medellin, etc. the buses won’t arrive early in the morning so you might want to book a hostel to be able to take the boat service the next morning.
Bear in mind. If you are with a large group, they use different boat sizes and therefore capacity is limited.

Option 2: From "Cartagena"

Make your way to "Muelle de la bodeguita gate No.5" in front of the Walled City Cartagena, ask for the boat service (approx. $100.000, 2 hrs.) to Acuarimantima, isla Titipan. Boats leave at 9am every day, make sure to be there half an hour before. This reservation needs to be made with advanced to be able to save your spot; we will contact you right after you have reserved your stay to coordinate.

Our showers are not standard showers. The water is precious and limited so we ask our guest to please only take evening showers.
During the day you can wash your hands but please conserve where possible. We understand the temptation to grab a bucket in between dives, get back that silky hair feeling right? But we hope you can resist.

SOLAR ENERGY:

Our energy is derived from solar system. We do have a back up generator but this is only used for essentials such as keeping the daily catch fresh and edible and at times the mood calls for it, we’ll use this back up energy to give our sound system a run.
