But, hold on! you won't only enjoy diving and its enchantment, but also of the beauty of local people, their costumes and stories to tell. Tolú is one of the least polluted towns in Colombia. Why? because the local mean of transportation contributes to do so. This mean of transportation is called "Bicitaxi or Bicicletero" in spanish. It was first invented here and has become one of the cultural icons, not only for its conttribution to environment, but for the charming feeling it gives to tourists when getting on the bicitaxi and take the short tour around Tolú, enjoying slowly of its wonderful people, the places, the sea and the happiness felt in the air. I am really proud to show this cultural icon of my hometown and make you realize that we have unique features in the world.
Everybody asks when going to a new place about the cuisine. In Tolú you can find fried fish with patacones (small slices of fried plantain) with coconut rice and either avocado or cabbage salad. Tolú also offers all the kinds of food found in most of south american countries in case you don't like the local food, but that's almost imposible, lol! shrimp cocktail is also found everywhere in Tolú.
So, I invite you dear reader to visit my beautiful hometown. There are plenty of hotels here for all budgets. It is easy to get to and things here are not expensive. We have very interesting celebrations which I am going to write later. For me it's a pleasure to have you reading this and hopefully, I am going to write local stories, famous people, places and more. Welcome to Tolú and don't miss the chance to find all of this in only one place!
