THERE ARE ONLY 2 BUS TIMES LISTED ONLINE, IS THIS TRUE?
No, not all services are listed online and you will find plenty of options in the bus terminal to San Onofre. Expreso Brasilia usually offers the best service.
WHICH IS THE NEAREST AIRPORT TO RINCON DEL MAR?
The nearest airport is Corozal (2 hours), however they have limited flights and usually only from Medellin. The next best alternative is the Cartagena Airport (3-3.5 hours) and the Montería Airport (4 hours). Cartagena, being the most common option, usually has more transportation alternatives.
WHAT IS THERE TO DO IN RINCON DEL MAR?
Rincón is a very interesting town and has beautiful natural resources around that you can explore. All of the activities are operated by members of the community who will share their own knowledge and experience with you, and they receive the full economic benefit from it, as we do not take any commissions.
You can go horseback riding on the Tropical Dry Forest, take a canoe trip on the mangroves, learn to make the traditional arepa de huevo in a cooking class or learn the Caribbean rhythms in a drums class. We have great scuba diving spots in Rincón del Mar, and a resident Hatha Yoga teacher to calm body and mind. We also suggest spending an afternoon walking through town so that you may feel the warmth and welcoming Costeño culture of the people of Rincón.
The activities must be paid in cash to the local guide and do not need to be booked in advanced. Prices for these activities vary between $25.000 and $60.000 per person*.
*Scuba diving prices vary. Please contact Rincón Dive Center for more info.
HOW IS YOUR INTERNET CONNECTION?
We usually have very decent Wi-Fi in Dos Aguas Lodge, but bear in mind that this is a remote location in a rural area and the quality of the service cannot be guaranteed. Power outages are common and that will also affect the service. The most reliable data provider in the area is TIGO or Movistar.
DO YOU HAVE RESTAURANT SERVICE?
We offer delicious farm to table meals with as many locally grown products as possible. We do not serve meat or fish, and specialize on creative vegetarian recipes. Breakfast is included in the rate, but bear in mind we do not serve lunch, as we want to encourage our guests to try the local dishes in local restaurants. We serve tasty snacks during the day and a few options for dinner every night.
DO YOU RECEIVE GROUPS OR HAVE SPECIAL PRICES FOR GROUPS?
Per hotel policy, we do not take reservations for more than eight (8) people, as our spaces are limited and cannot sustain one single group of more than 8. If you are a group of more than eight people (children included) we can recommend alternative accommodations for you. The hotel reserves the right to cancel reservations that disregard this policy.
