Shooting the Gap with the turtles

... this boat ride see note 10)

Capurganá is only accessible by boat or (small) plane, though most arrive by boat. The airport is rather small, but does have its very own abandoned plane, not sure if it belonged to a narco or not but it did have the UN logo on it, but that could have been faked. There are no cars, but I did see a tractor and 2 or 3 motorbikes and lots of bicycles and a few horse-drawn carts. We were in a small area ...
