Your trip to Cartagena won’t be complete without a whole day just to chill and relax in the beach.  There is no better way of doing it than going to a place away from all the noise and chaos of the city.

This trip will start early in the morning, after you get picked up from the hotel or the chosen departure spot and then driven to the port to take the boat.

You will spend some time in Playa Grande where you will have the chance to snorkel for a while (masks, safety recommendations and guides will be handed) and see the corals.

Then, you will jump to Cholón, a famous party island, where you will stop to take some drinks and pictures.

And the final stop will be in Playa Blanca, at Barú island.
