to try everything there is to do on this island and leave time for some serious relaxing, you need at least a week.

Facilities at the hotel include an outdoor gym, yoga studio (mats provided), stand up paddleboards, beach volleyball.

Our recycling centre, kitchen garden, carpentry and livestock areas are also open for exploring.

Each evening you can find something different happening, including cocktail classes, zumba sessions, pizza making in the garden, outdoor cinema and beach dinners - whatever takes our fancy that night.

Blue Apple is also a PADI Dive Resort and our dive operation is run by Cartagena's #1 Dive School, Paraiso Dive. We have a training pool, 4m house reef within swimming distance and easy access to Cartagena’s main dive sites (Baru, Rosario Islands). We offer taster dives to advanced courses, as well as guided snorkelling.

Outside the grounds, the island of Tierra Bomba is surprisingly large and one of our favourite ways to explore it is on horseback. Enjoy a guided hack, from beach to beach, stopping to swim along the way. Suitable for beginners and experienced riders alike.

The afternoon 'moto-tour' as it is known, is a fantastic way to get a taste of local village life. You will ride pillion on a motorbike driven by one of the island's mototaxistas, who will take you to visit all the important cultural sites, as well as showing you around town, stopping for a beer or two with your driver as the sun sets.

In addition to these, our community offers (and profits from) many other activities and treats which we are delighted to offer to our guests, including: village and fortress walking tours, Rosario island boat trips, massages, local-style fishing, manicures and pedicures, mountain biking, guided mangrove kayak tours and latin dance classes.
