FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How can I get to the island?
To get to the Isla Múcura Hotel, you can do it in two ways, but it all depends on the city you are leaving from.
By air to:
– Monteria, Daily commercial flights depart daily on VIVAAIR, AVIANCA and LAN airlines.
– Cartagena: Daily flights on all airlines.
You can take public transportation in the main intermunicipal transportation companies, to the Municipality of Tolú – Coveñas. The companies are: RAPIDO OCHOA S.A AND EXPRESO BRASILIA.
After being in Tolú, you can go to the Malecón from where boats leave daily, with a 1 hour trip to the island.
It is the easiest and simplest way to get to Hotel Isla Múcura, where boats leave daily from the Malecón de Tolú at 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., in a journey of approximately 45 minutes. The return from Isla Múcura to Tolú is between 2:00pm and 3:00pm.
