Welcome to our Paradise
Hidden away on the southern shore of Tierra Bomba island, just 30 minutes from Cartagena, Blue Apple is an independently owned boutique hotel and beach restaurant with a strong focus on sustainable tourism.
We invite you to stop by for lunch or to spend a few nights, escape the real world and dive into our magical island life.
With strict biosecurity protocols and our 10 bedrooms all with their own access and set in 4 acres of private land, you can be as socially distant as you please.
We hope to open for international visitors from 1 October.
¡Estamos casi abiertos para el turismo nacional! Invitamos a nuestros vecinos Colombianos contactarnos para tarifas especiales, con todo incluido y sin IVA.

Horse Treks & Swims
Many of us grew up around horses so our 7 creole ponies are part of the family.
Take a short trek to a nearby beach, or explore the island over a 20km trail. Horseback is the best way to get a feel for the size of Tierra Bomba and we have horses and routes to suit all levels.
Our horses love a quick dip in the ocean and a roll in the sand as well, and we encourage guests to share an unforgettable moment with them, even if not going for a ride.
changes since march 2020
At first it felt like our world was falling apart. However we soon started to look at this enforced pause as an opportunity to take steps to becoming the business we've always wanted to be.
We've been putting the hours into our kitchen garden, so now produce a lot of our own fruit and veg. We acquired chickens and goats who contribute eggs and goats cheese and we also keep our own pigs. We make our own granola, pasta, bread, cookies and cakes onsite and the entire contents of your minibar is now home made.
What we can't produce ourselves, we buy carefully, seasonally and where possible, always locally. We no longer serve any meat or dairy that is not produced in line with our values. If we can avoid it, we do not spend our $ with large, global corporations.
Our variety of vegetarian, vegan and gluten free dishes is considerably wider and we welcome more ideas.
We are far from perfect, but we are committed to making the effort to improve, constantly.
We continue to support Co-Founder Portia's socio-environmental non-profit, Green Apple.
As Seen In
A different approach to
travel and business
Blue Apple is a proud member of Regenerative Travel.
If sustainability is about doing no harm, the concept of regeneration is to actively try to improve the world around us, environmentally, socially and economically.
Blue Apple is committed to improving our environmental credentials, and we recognise that broad social equality is vital to environmental survival.
In addition to environmental efforts therefore, we aim to create a hotel and workplace where everyone feels welcome and everyone is equal. We champion and participate in a fair and equitable economy. We try to be meaningfully involved in our local community and always respectful of our neighbours.
As we reopen, we have begun to document our journey so that we can share everything we learn, promoting regeneration to all the people we touch - clients, staff, neighbours, suppliers and our online audience.
