Bocachica Fort

This strategic fort saw a lot of action, is surrounded by a moat and is riddled with tunnels that are inhabited by bats. There was once a thick chain that ran under the water across the bay entrance, to stop any pirate ships from entering.

Bocachica fort CartagenaHidden underwater escolleras, or breakwaters were built for the same reason.You can get there in a water-taxi that leaves from the Muelle de Pegasos, the wharf in front of the clock-tower for around US$6...though you must bargain hard. The boats usually stop at a lot of smaller fishing villages en route.
