We took most of the distance on foot, but ran into some guys on horse that took us the final leg over rocky forest terrain to the sea.
Once we got to the first base camp, we stayed a night in some tents. There were other strange, but quiet travelers there. The next day, we took another 6km hike to the next beach, which had fewer facilities than the first, but had some wild people and beautiful beaches.
On the third day at the remote campsite, we took a half-day hike to La Pueblita - a small version of the Lost City or Macchu Picchu (if you like). It was a tough climb through the jungle over rocky terrain and there wasn't terribly much to see.
We left the jungle on foot, without encountering any narcoterrorist paramilitary groups, and headed back to Cartagena for a few more days of fun.
