Seafood lovers paradise, period.The Atlantic coast of Colombia has influences from the Middle East (lots of Lebanese and other Arabs settled here), Africa (slaves that the Spaniards brought), and the indigenous people. The proximity to the Atlantic ocean makes sea food a staple. It includes shrimp, lobster, crab and oysters. Fresh and salt water fish include snapper, Spanish mackerel, sea bass, mojarra, and bocachico, a small mouthed fish. The Atlantic region's most representative dishes are sancocho de bagre a soup made of this fish, viuda de pescado, fried bocachico, arroz con coco, cocadas, and bunuelos de maiz or corn fritters.I remember stopping alongside the road to "La Costa" or the Atlantic Coast for fresh fruit juices made of oranges, bananas, lemons, mangoes, guanabana, pineapple, watermelon, etc. Also having suero, a kind of sour yogurt you put on yucca, fried plantains or arepa.

Your on a boat. It's you, the ocean and the stars. Oh, and there's a bar!
Bathing suit, sunscreen, a good book.
Scuba, snorkeling, aquarium, swimming. If you can, visit the Enchanted Lagoon in the Rosario Islands where you can swim in plankton rich waters that become fluorescent when the sea life or you move in it. Its amazing. Also buy fresh seafood from the local fishermen.
