Tolu, a beach town easily accessible from Monteria, Cartagena and Mompos on Colombia's north coast is the gateway to Tintipan Island and other islands of the archipelago in the Gulf of Morrosquillo. Come here to enjoy sun, beaches, swimming, snorkeling, diving the coral reefs, shady palm trees, kayaking, walking, collecting shells and relaxing. There is a lot of accommodation in Tolu for all budgets, from hostels to hotels, especially along the road in front of the beach. Tintipan Island also has accommodation including hotels in the middle of the ocean. Tintipan Island can also be accessed by boat on a tour from Cartagena. In Tolu and on Tintipan Island, many of the meals are based on fish, basic meals, but international food can also be found.

The boat stops at various islands and beaches along the journey out to Tintipan including Islote, a densely populated island where the locals live.
