  • Cartagena: Snorkel, Mangroves and Playa Blanca Tour

    1. Cartagena: Snorkel, Mangroves and Playa Blanca Tour

    Get picked up from your accommodation at 7:30 AM in an air-conditioned bus. Meet your guide who will provide all the details about your upcoming adventure and the route. At 9 AM, arrive at the island of Baru and board a boat. Cruise for 15 minutes through the crystal clear waters until you arrive at the snorkeling site. After 1 hour of enjoyable snorkeling, continue the tour into the mangroves to see birds, iguanas, and other species. Discover the fascinating landscapes of the island and the life of the native species who inhabit this magical ecosystem. At 1 PM, head back to Playa Blanca to enjoy a delicious lunch with options of fish, chicken, or vegetarian. Once you've eaten, spend some time swimming in the clear waters or relaxing on the beautiful white sand beach. At 3:30 PM, board the return bus which will drop you off back at your hotel.

    This tour was one of my favorite tours while in Colombia. I had never done snorkeling before so I really enjoyed it. The tour was great. Daniel (bus guide) Ivan (boat guide) both did a great job. They promised to send me all the pictures they took and they did the only thing I’d recommend for anyone planning to attend this tour is to make sure your tour guide sprinkles some bread before they snap your pictures to make sure they capture fish around you otherwise you will end up with just a picture of yourself under water :( I think that was the only downside for me. The food was great, I literally ate everything on my plate (went with the fish option). I definitely recommend this tour.

Everything was almost perfect and I'm saying this because it was cloudy outside so the snorkeling wasn't so good. But if you have the luck to catch a sunny day you won't regret. The guide is a nice guy and explained me many things. The mangrove forest is great too, something to see. The lunch was good. I really liked them

We had a very relaxing and enjoyable time. Alex was a great tour guide with much interesting information. The food was fresh & delicious & the people on the island were as humble and friendly as can be. Although we wish we could have seen more corals and fishes, we had a great time!

I highly recommend this tour . Ruben is my tour guy . He pick me up on time . We had a great time at the beach . After that we went snorkeling and mangrove tour. The food also delicious. Well worth the money . My tour guy Ruben offer above and beyond service

Amazing experience! Our tour guide was great. Playa blanca was beautiful & relaxing. The lunch was delicious! Snorkeling was fun (although the water was cloudy) & the mangroves were also nice to see!
