Cali bungalow description

Sal de Mar is a large, breezy, thatch-roofed beach house constructed by local artisans, nestled between the Caribean Ocean and the Mangrove wetlands.
Downstairs you will find a dining room, a large salon for hammocks, an open kitchen and caretaker's room, toilet and 2 (two) showers (one indoors and one outdoors).
The upstairs area sleeps 10 (ten) guests comfortably in its 3 (three) large bedrooms. In addition to this you will enjoy wide hallways and 2 (two) decks. You will be amazed by views of the Caribbean Sea, white sandy beaches and plenty of coconut trees from the front balcony and mangrove forests and wetlands from the back balcony.
The house is located in the area of San Bernardo del Viento Archipelago on a secluded beach in coastal Colombia (Departamento del Sucre) and can be accessed from Cartagena by public transportation, a 2 h 30 m ride to the nearest village, Rincon del Mar, followed by a 20 (twenty) minute boat ride. Geographically, it is in the area of the Islas de San Bernardo del Viento, the southern most tip of the Parque Nacional Islas del Rosario. The 7 (seven) islands, known for their natural beauty and flour-like sands are surrounded by coral reefs. Some of the natural atractions are:
Santa Cruz del Islote, is a mere square mile in size and features the highest population density in the world. It has been said about this tiny island that 'people sleep so close together that they dream the same'. Cabruna Island, just in front of the house, is a bird sanctuary. Tintipan Island, the largest one, features several 'cienagas' inside it. Mangles Island has one of the best coral formations. Palma Island where you can see dolphins as you pass by.
Come and enjoy a vacation like no other where you will live among the natural elements without the hassles of modern life, still with all the comforts that you would want.
