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.

    Back Packers guys were just amazing. They are so kind and helpful. They tread us very well and all the time watch us for our safety. Out guide Jose, makes us feel very comfortable, he is a very nice guide. Playa blanca beach was very nice and Mambo Beach place was amazing too. I really recommend them 100%

    We had an excellent trip. The ride to Playa Blanca was comfortable and timely. José did an excellent job of explaining what to expect at the beach and all the amenities available. The lunch was tasty and the beach is gorgeous. Bring pesos if you wanna buy souvenirs and trinkets on the beach, plenty of vendors there!

    If you are thinking of going to Playa Blanca, keep being patient in mind, it is a public beach and locals harass you to buy them souvenirs, massages and even jet skis rides. Transportation was comfortable and faster than we expected. I recommend you to send a text or confirm you are getting picked up, I trusted my reservation and the company forgot to pick up my group, they sent us a guide to pick us up in a taxi at almost 9:20, a taxi we didn't fit in, so the guide left us alone going where the bus was. José, our tour guide was pretty enthusiastic and made up for the missed pick up, lunch was delicious.
