Full description
Enjoy a paradisiacal day relaxing on the white sand beach of Baru Island's aptly-named Playa Blanca. After getting picked up from your hotel in Cartagena, take a 1-hour journey in a comfortable air-conditioned minivan to Baru. Learn more about local life in both the city and the island towns from your local driver. Once in Baru, take a quick, idyllic stroll along the beach to reach where you will spend the day. Make the most of all the facilities the place has to offer, including sundecks to relax on the beach or snorkel equipment if you wish to take a dip in the beach's crystal-clear waters. In the afternoon, savor a delicious lunch with several options including vegetarian and meat dishes washed down with local juices. Head back to the beach after lunch to relax for another few hours before beginning the journey back to Cartagena in the evening.

Nice trip to Baru island, the place with sun chairs and the lunch were located a bit from the big crowd, pretty good food and drinks. Jose is English speaking and a great guide . Had breakfast a little bit further up the beach for 10 000 COP ( ham omelette with 2 pieces of toast ) that included a cup of coffee Expect a long time for the return trip… took over 2h for us.

We had an excellent trip. The ride to Playa Blanca was comfortable and timely. José did an excellent job of explaining what to expect at the beach and all the amenities available. The lunch was tasty and the beach is gorgeous. Bring pesos if you wanna buy souvenirs and trinkets on the beach, plenty of vendors there!
