Crowdy, because popular and still private
Mar 2020 • Couples
José picked us up at the hotel for a drive of just over an hour. Indeed, no more boat trips, as 7 years ago a bridge was built.
The playa blanca is long and full of restaurants and entertainment services. José and his crew operates La Española with a welcome drink for all tour participants and beach life with enough chairs in the sun and in the shade. The waves are relaxing, but be careful with the rocky stones on the shore line. Lunch exceeded our expectations. And good drinks are available.
Mid afternoon return to Cartagena. The traffic jam, regrettably, is unavoidable. But after all, we spent a nice day on the beach.

An easy, stress-free way to visit Playa Blanca...
Mar 2020
We visited Playa Blanca twice on this visit to Cartagena -- once on our own and once with this tour. I would really recommend taking a tour like this if you are not familiar with the area and your Spanish is limited. It is simple, stress-free, and easy way to spend the day on the beach. The tour bus picks you up at the hotel and after an 1 or 1.5 hour drive you arrive at the beach, where you are led on 7-8 minute walk to an area of the beach designated for your tour group. There are beach chairs, both in the sun and shade reserved for the group, as well as a shaded tabled area where lunch is served. There is also bar where drinks can be ordered through-out the day. Prices are a little higher, i.e. "beach prices," but not outrageous. Around 4 pm you pack up and make your way back to the bus. The drive takes a little longer going back because of traffic, but you are eventually dropped off at your hotel. Overall, a full, no frills day at the beach, but reasonably priced and so much easier than trying to make it on your own.

Playa blanca
This was the perfect beach day in Cartagena. The tour company made it easy and stress free. We were picked up at the hotel. The bus ride there was fine, and then we were led to a hostel on playa Blanca. As someone who has traveled to many beaches in many countries, it was so nice to have free access to a bathroom and to lounge chairs while on the beach! We also had access to shade, if you wanted, which was wonderful in that heat! My friend and I ordered the fish for lunch, which was delicious! If you are looking for a stress free trip to the beach, I highly recommend this trip!

Playa Blanca
I had a good experience with our tour guide expert his name was Jose. The beach was beautiful although vendors where every where which made it kind of unpleasant at times. Overall Jose was very attentive and helping to our needs as tourist he has a great attitude and very out going he is a great asset to this company and I would recommend him if anyone is looking for a great and caring personality he even shared his sun block as I had ran out of my own Also, the food was delicious and everything about the tour was awesome.
