Really good tour, our guide Jose was great and very attentative. The lunch was ok but the real attraction is the amazing beach. The trip would have been perfect without the constant annoying vendors. Not the tours fault, just be prepared, they do not understand No thank you in any language. You must be rude or they continue to push and annoy you.
Excellent tour guide and driver . Yummy lunch
Pick up was on time. beautiful quiet beach very nice day trip for the price pay was definitely worth it
Playa blanca is amazing but the day we went was a bit crowded. Food was decent
That was a really nice tour and a great place to discover. The guides took care of everything and were really friendly. The beach is amazing and the lunch was great too. I highly recommand it!
It’s hard to relax on this beach; the constant interruptions by the vendors make t next to impossible. I went in the water to get away from them, but the jet ski vendors were there too! I sympathize with them but it’s not pleasant.
As a whole, the tour was wonderful. Jose was very helpful and clear with the day’s itinerary. As an added bonus, he was able to communicate with us in English (a rarity in Cartagena) He took us to the most desolate part of Playa Blanca and we were able to use the amenities of a hostel.
Transportation to and from the beach was a little unorganized but besides that it was great. Jose is an amazing tour guide - he was extremely helpful and answered any questions we had.
Jose was great. He was our perfect guide. The trip started off late. But after we got to the beach, he made sure we will have a good experience. We stayed back late enough to make up for lost time. The food was quite fresh as well. Jose also made an arrangement with a bartender, so we paid fair price for our drinks. Will definitely book again with BackPackersCTG, if I go back.
The trip was great. It was crowded but not as crowded as it would have been on the weekend. I only gave 4 stars because we had to move from the location where the tour guide had us set up because it was not as picturesque as other parts of the beach. The location where the tour sets up is overcrowded and rocky so we ventured off and found a more peaceful area where we were not as overwhelmed by the vendors and others trying to solicit money for overpriced goods. Overall I had a very pleasant experience and will know where to go upon my return to Columbia
This tour was really fun and relaxing it was a nice way to start our vacation. It rained briefly but overall the guide was nice. The towns people are a little annoying with constantly trying to give you a massage but after a while they leave you alone. I would highly recommend getting the Fish for lunch, it was amazing and I still crave it until this day.
Great time ! Jose Mieles was our tour guide and very attentive. He would make sure to get cocktails for us, so that we did not need to deal with the hassle of vendors. The food was delicious and he provided the option of fish, chicken or vegetarian for lunch. We were picked up at 9:30am were transported to Baru by land in a van. We were dropped off at our hotel around 4:30pm. The vendors can become a bit annoying at times, but the service was great, Jose was awesome and the beach itself is mesmerizing. We were also provided with cubbies and locks to secure our personal items of value. Great tour and would definitely recommend! Gracias Jose!
This was pretty good. However, when I went, they didn't take credit card at the restaurant we were parked at. I ended up getting better deals with my cash from the vendors walking around. For example, I had a deluxe pina colada made in front of me by a guy with a cart vs. the restaurant. Drinks and a show! They need to get on the credit card wagon. I would have been more relaxed to make more purchases. They should make deals with the massage ladies to add their services to a tab. That would help them produce more revenue than relying on beach goers to carry wads of cash on them in an area they know they are more vulnerable to theft. credit is king in this case. otherwise, it was a pretty good day trip.
The trip was well-run, but it was a crowded beach and there are so many people selling you things, which can get overwhelming.
Great day at the beach. Jose was a fantastic guide. The beach location is awesome with chairs, hammocks, and a relaxing swinging chairs that's also great for photos. The lunch was also very good. We all had the fish and were very satisfied. It rained in the afternoon, but Jose was able to find us some uno cards so we could play while we waited for the rain to stop. Highly recommend this trip and would definitely do it again. Thanks Jose.
Excellent trip, tour guide very helpful and informative, the beach was fantastic, would return asap,
Great tour! Thank you Jose (our guide) for making our excursion a memorable one!
The bus collected us from our hotel a little late as the Sunday morning traffic was hectic. Our guide Jose was welcoming and spoke good English. The long narrow beach was crowded but vibrant and it was really interesting to see this area out of Cartagena. Great beachside lunch and lovely swimming.
