The best beach day trip!

Hayzar was an excellent host and the trip couldn't have been better. The driver was courteous and professional. The beach was beautiful and, more importantly, their location is at the perfect spot. Service and food/drinks at the location were excellent as well. Highly recommended!!

Beautiful day at the beach

Excellent day trip to a beautiful beach! Our guide was very thoughtful. After pick up we stopped at a one stop store where we had time to pick up breakfast, coffee, atm, etc. The drive is approximately 1 hour, but well worth it. Lunch and drinks were great. Didn't have any major issues with the locals trying to sell things. Guide was very protective of the guests and remained nearby all day. Lounge chairs available for additional rental fee. Cocktails available also. Everything was very convenient. Bar was steps away from the beach. Overall very enjoyable day. Would do it again.

Wonderful Day at the Beach

Thank you to Hayzar and Jose for a wonder trip to the beach! We were picked up from our AirBnB, took a quick stop at a grocery store for any missing essentials, then made our way to the beach. Given that it was windy season, instead of the short boat ride we walked to the beach; sincerely appreciate the judgement call in the best interest of our safety. Fruit, water, and a shaded awning were provided. We also opted for the lunch. Thank you again for a wonderful day, Hayzar!

Beautiful Beach!

Playa Blanca was absolutely beautiful and the lunch we had was fantastic! It was helpful that we stopped at the supermarket prior to our trip in case we needed anything additional. However, based on my experience, I wouldn’t necessarily recommend this tour. We walked through sand for 10 minutes to reach our destination which wasn’t ideal if you have health issues. Once there, we were introduced to the vendors known by the host. He mentioned that massages were 80mil for 30 minutes, which is fine. He set up the massages for us, we told him 30 minutes before lunch (for 30 minutes - the only timeframe he mentions). He said that he would let the masseuses know. They showed up earlier than scheduled and the massage went on past 30 minutes. We aren’t wearing watches so werent aware of time. I’m also not the strongest in Spanish. We felt a bit set up because there was a language barrier and our host made it a point that he would help facilitate anything we needed. When they showed up, he wasn’t there. We did pay for our massages (which were very nice) but we want to warn you to be specific when setting these up. Also, this isn’t the place to go if you want to truly relax without being bothered. There will be vendors passing by every couple of minutes to see if you’d like to buy something.

Great day

Our tour guide Hassan (I think that is how it’s spelled) was awesome. Picked us up from our hotel, stopped in a supermarket for anything we forgot, and explained everything about our day. He was very helpful and made sure we were not taken advantage of by vendors. The day itself was relaxed, not too many panhandlers but maybe is the time of year we went (mid feb). The food served was delicious, the fish was fresh. We enjoyed our jet ski experience. Overall a good day, would definitely recommend and use again if we go back to Cartagena.

This tour was perfect for a quick trip to the beach. The trip was short, the lunch was amazing and our guide was accommodating. He was incredibly attentive and it was an overall great tour. I highly recommend this to anyone.

Great Excursion to the Beach

Well organized transport to Playa Blanca. Be ready for heavy traffic and terrible roads as you get close to the beach. The guide was great and provided good information and advice on how to enjoy the experience. Very happy with the excursion. The beach is crowded and, as many others have stated, there are many people trying to sell things, but the sand and water were beautiful. It was a great day.

Hayzar our Guide and the food was great! The ride is very very bumby, you ride to a rural area. The walking vendors are very annoying however, unless you are actually sleep on the beach. They come over a lot. Hayzar gave us good cautionary advice and tips on how to deal with the vendors and overall the area. My friend and I enjoyed ourselves.

Beautiful beach....not so relaxing
claudiamV1481GC

I read many of the reviews on this website and other sites about the beaches in Cartagena, the constant badgering by sellers, the mediocre food, etc. etc. And it was all true. The beaches are spectacular and if you get there early enough you can enjoy the beauty without all the boats and ski jets making all that noise. i booked a tour, and the guide was great. he communicated with me on what to bring, he oriented us to the area, he explained the sellers and told us to reach out to him if we had problems. He was great...however, you just can't get away from the seller and those trying to give you a massage. It totally ruined the experience for me. The tour group has an agreement with the folks who feed you (if you go for the lunch option) and provide you with a lounger and umbrella. The guide gave us the option to stay under the communal umbrella/hut for free or rent one from the young man...we rented and that was okay. The food however was not very good, we tried the vegetarian option and the fish option. Both had rice, tostones, and salad w/ the veg option a fried egg -- same price as the fish mind you. The fish was weird, not food poison weird just a weird taste. The location of the restaurant/loungers was fine at first and then when more people arrived, then the jet skis and boats started w/ all that noise. Not all the areas were affected by this, and I wish our guide would have directed us further up the beach where it was more tranquil. If you go, don't select the lunch and go have some food at one of the other food vendors that have more choices. Know you will be bombarded by sellers and massage offers (going price was approx $43 USD for an hr). And know it isn't all that relaxing...was barely able to read my book bc I kept having to interrupt myself to say "no thank you, no, no, please, no thank you".
