Interaction with GuestsThe natives of the island Santa Cruz offer typical Caribbean dishes made with the freshest seafood and the unique island seasoning. Maria Candela is the name of our head cook, recognized in the islands for its traditional pan fried fish and coconut rice with fried banana. The NeighborhoodLOCATION Located on the side of the island Tintipán in the archipelago Corales del Rosario and San Bernardo declared National Park, an unspoiled caribbean only 90 minutes from the bay of Cartagena, the most important colonial city on the coast of Colombia, and less than an hour of Tolu.
Santa Cruz del Islote is a small island in the Caribbean Sea. The island has almost four times the population density of Manhattan, yet residents live in only one-story structures (List of most densely populated islands). Santa Cruz del Islote has just 97 buildings for its residents, including three general stores and a small discoteca where all ages are welcome. The only unoccupied space on the island is half the size of a tennis court. Although the majority of the residents make a living as fishermen, many others find work on the mainland or neighboring islands. No running water or sewer system is available and all electricity originates from a small generator shared by all houses. Although the Colombian Navy transports drinking water to the island once every three weeks, supplies are limited and expensive. Despite these challenges, Santa Cruz del Islote enjoys a peaceful existence within one of Colombia's most beautiful natural environments. Nowhere on the island do residents feel the need for locks as they live as one cooperative family. I am touched by this way of life and hope to contribute it with my resources and heart.
