Beach was nice and the food was great. Nice and relaxing time away from all the vendors. The lemonada de coco was the best here. Fresh

A wonderful trip! We were picked up from our hotel in Bocagrande and rode in an nice air conditioned bus. We were taken a spot away from the crowd and got to spend a beautiful day on the beach. We enjoyed the fine sand, warm sun and beautiful clear blue Caribbean Sea. I highly recommend this trip! As always Viator provides excellent tour services!

My guide was Helder(I think) and driver was Louis. They were extremely great and helpful. The food was good and we went to a better part of the beach by a little speed boat nd walked back through a wooded area. If you have issues with walking, climbing or sight beware. The walk to the beach is a trek in uneven rocky terrain and the walk back is through the woods on very rocky, uneven, hilly terrain. You can’t take the boat back bc at the time of day the waters are too rough. I will say Louis helped me down to the back and they both helped me in and out if the boat. They were great.

This was an amazing tour. Everything ran smoothly from the pick up at our hotel to the commute to Baru Island. Hayzar our tour was the coolest. He provided us with ideas on what to do at Playa Bianca. He was one of the nicest people I ever met in Colombia. The food was out of this world. Freshly prepared and so delicious. We were greeted with a plate of fresh fruits too. Definitely worth the extra money we paid for the lunch option. Highly recommend this tour when visiting Colombia.

Disappointing tour for us- we were the only non-Spanish speaking people in the group which made it difficult for us to feel included and receive the same amount of information passing through the towns from the guide, we were also worried to leave our bags at the location at Playa Blanca to go and explore as the tour guide wasn't very attentive, there was limited shade available at the beach which left us feeling quite unwell by the end of the day. The bar at our location told by our tour guide to only buy drinks from here was very expensive- when we enquired about the prices of drinks, we were very shocked. In the end, we politely declined, only to then be hassled for the next hour by the bartender. Our tour guide didn't say anything to the bartender to leave us alone. Playa Blanca itself was quite dirty with lots of rubbish in the water. The jetskis also fly past people in the shallows very quickly which is extremely dangerous, especially if someone is submerged in the water and can't be seen. The lunch was delicious but unfortunately was the only real highlight of the tour.

Nice beach but a bit crowded for my taste. Arrangements were as promised.

The best excursion we took during our time in Cartagena! The transportation to and from our hotel went very smoothly. The tour bus showed up at the exact time that our contact said they would. Our guide, Hayzar, was one of the nicest people we met in Colombia. He gave great advice on how to make our day as memorable as possible, as well as what else we should do during the rest of our vacation. I would highly recommend this trip!

The excursion was nice, an easy trip by van to Baru, an area that surprising holds the gem of Playa Blanca. The guides were friendly and indulged me by speaking both Spanish and English so I could practice and completely understand. Lunch was good and two beach kittens shared my lunch. :)
