We took a private tour out to this community from Cartegena. Good journey and site seeing on the ride.

When we got there we stopped by the community center and got some deep historical knowledge.

We dropped by what would be our eventual lunch location, a residents home. We then continued the walk through the town and got the historical context on the monuments and murals.

We stopped by the town holistic medicinal specialist. Very interesting products! We participated in the cultural arts dance performance. Very interactive. We got a lesson on playing the drums to the music.

Then the grad finally. The meal for lunch! Grilled fish smothered with a mild curry sauce with peppers and onions. Fresh fish! Served with coconut rice and beans. The drink was a citrus flavor sweetened with sugar can liquid. Refreshing. All served on a large plantain leaf with a wooden utensil made from a stick or twig.

I definitely want to do this again.

I spent less than 20,000 COP to visit this place when others have to spend US$100. It is noted for producing famous sons such as the boxer, Antonio, and others. Benkos Bioho was an ex king of the Republic of Congo before he was captured and brought in as a slave in Colombia. He managed to escape when the boat sank and he and others managed to find refuge in Palenque. The ladies are noted for selling fruits and wearing colour dresses with the colors of the Colombia flag.

La historia de Benkos Bioho es tan importante como desconocida, y en Palenque se le otorga el gran valor histórico y cultural que se merece. El monumento en su honor se erige con orgullo en la plaza central del pueblo.

Benkos Bioho was a king in the Republic of Congo, back in the early 16th century. He was captured by the Spaniards, transported to Cartagena, and like his fellow Africans, to be sold into slavery. But his boat sank somewhere along the Magdalena river and he escaped, setting up an army with his fellow runaway slaves, and established the exile community of San Balisio de Palenque. Biohó also created an intelligence network, which helped to facilitate more escapes The king tried in vain to overcome Benko’s army, but continuously failed. So he gave up and signed a peach treaty which gave the people of Palenque their freedom. Unfortunately, the king really couldn’t be trusted, and in 1621 Benkos was captured and hung. Finally, in 1691, the Spanish Crown issued an official Royal Decree freeing all Palenqueros from slavery once again – this time, for good.

A statue of Bioho stands in the main square in Palenque, showing him breaking free of his chains and reaching for his motherland, West Africa.

YOU should go and visit this place. Its unique and different from anything else you will experience in Colombia.

I was sad to hear that very few people want or do visit this amazing little town called San Basilio De Palenque just a few hours drive away from Cartagena. As Kathychiara has said previously, this is a UNESCO designated historical site - a 400 year old city of the first free slaves in America.

Our Cartagena guide Yessica told us that if we go, we need to spend most of a day there and that we must hire a local guide for a tour. No problem! The trip to the town is picturesque and you experience another ecosystem of the many that make up the entire country.

Once we arrived we were greeted by locals and welcomed into their homes. We were assigned a local guide who took us around and stayed with us the entire time we were there. What was most impressive about the experience is that of the 3,500 people whom made up the population, most can trace their lineage to the first slave who established the town back in the early 1600's - Benkos Bioho. A simple yet powerful statue stands in the public square in the centre of town and boldly shows him breaking frees of the chains of slavery.

The town itself is modest and simple, but there is strong bonds and love here and you can feel it. It is amazing that a town can stay together for 400 years and not lose its identity or its drive towards a better life.

RECOMMENDATIONS: Do wear sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat. This place is super hot ( I say this as a native Hawaiian! I can stand heat but this was crazy!). Also bring some extra money because you can buy a number of local products like homemade candy, t-shirts, famed Palenque style music and other things. Many locals count on making extra money this way. I had only wished that the guide told us this before coming. It was hard to turn sellers away as we were going.

Overall, one of the highlights to my trip to Colombia.
