    • The tour guide Vanessa was AMAZING! Pick up was right on time at our Airbnb, the hour ride was air conditioned and included detailed explanations of important sites on the way. The beach was simply beautiful and lunch was fresh and delicious. I highly recommend this day trip!

    • Really great experience!

    • A group of 5 friends and I had the pleasure of visiting the beautiful beach Playa Blanca. We specifically chose this tour because of the historical bus tour that we would receive in addition to a day visit to the beach. Natalia was an amazing tour guide and described the various neighborhoods, history, and sites very well in English and Spanish. We learned a lot about Cartagena and any questions we had were answered by the tour guide and bus driver. After the hour drive, we arrived at a parking lot and had a quick walk down to the beach the road down to the beach is not that paved and you walk down a rocky area so keep that in mind if you have any limitations. You arrive at a fairly crowded beach with vendors, tourists, and locals but no worries you hop on a boat to take you to a more secluded area of the beach. Here, you'll find far fewer vendors although you will still find a few very persistent ones wanting to sell you something, pristine water, white sand, and tranquility. We were served fresh fruit upon arrival, had a private tent/cabana, and received a lunch meal pescado frito or pollo. I thought both were good but the seafood lovers in my group loved the whole fish pescado frito. There are water activities that you can negotiate with various vendors jet skis, banana boat, tubing if swimming isn't enough for you. The tour time was perfect. After the hour bus ride, spending the day in the sun, getting massages, going jet skiing, and swimming in the warm waters, we couldn't have asked for more. Feel free to walk up and down the beach as there are many bars, vendors, and restaurants to check out.

      Would definitely recommend this tour as Playa Blanca is well worth it.

    • Great tour .

    • This tour was amazing! We started early in the morning being picked up in our hotel. The guide was very well informed about the history and highlights of Cartagena and she was happy to answer any questions we asked her. Once we arrived to Baru, we had a lovely fresh fruit salad! Then the lunch was super fresh and tasty. I do recommend this tour if you are looking for a beautiful beach and a bit of history about Cartagena. Sandra C

    • We loved this tour !!! The beach is really wonderful.

    • Our tour guide was excellent and had a great time on the beach. Lunch was amazingly good!!!
      Our bus driver was not there upon departure and we had to wait at least 30 minutes which got us back to the city right around 5 pm. Needless to say we were in traffic for 1 hour.

    • This tour was amazing!

    • The beach was beautiful and our guide Natalia was very nice. We learned a lot about the history as we drove to Baru. Once we got there we took a quick boat ride to a quieter area of the beach. The beach is located in a poor area but it's all part of the experience. I would recommend it!

    • It started off a little rocky, as we requested a private tour. We were transported from bus to bus and ended up on a large bus with one couple in the back being very inappropriate. We had children with us, so we got off and requested alternative transportation. We were able to speak with the manager and he got us on a smaller van the original one they had us on before the transition and we were able to go separately. We were also taken care of by Vanessa and she was very nice and accommodating. The beach was amazing and they took us by boat to a less populous are of Playa Blanca. The food was great also! You definitely have to go if you're ever in Cartagena.
