Learn more about local life in both the city and the island towns from your local driver. Once in Baru, take a quick, idyllic stroll along the beach to reach where you will spend the day. Make the most of all the facilities the place has to offer, including sundecks to relax on the beach or snorkel equipment if you wish to take a dip in the beach's crystal-clear waters. In the afternoon, savor a delicious lunch with several options including vegetarian and meat dishes washed down with local juices.

This day trip to the beach is highly recommended. The turquoise water was warm and inviting. With transportation and lunch provided, this was true value for money. The tourist police patrol were on the beat, and I felt really safe. The tour guide, Alejandro (aka Alex) provided some helpful tips regarding dealing with vendors (e.g. women offering massages and men trying to sell trinkets). If you want to get away from the city and relax, this is your best bet.

Jesus and team were great. We were picked up on time, got to our destinations safely and enjoyed the beautiful Playa Blanca. I glad we had like our own section because the locals would’ve worn us out trying to sell items or to give a massage. Jesus and (I can’t remember his name) was always there when we needed anything.

We really liked it, it was better than we expected. The loungers they include are very simple, but for $ 60,000 COP we rented some super comfortable beds at the foot of the beach and much better than a lounge chair. The included lunch seemed super complete and delicious. And the most important thing is that the beach was supposed to be full of people but we were in an area called Playa Tranquila and that part of the beach was only for those of us who were going on this tour. So we were able to perfectly enjoy the beach just for ourselves.
