Paradise with Predatory Vendors
Marissa_M

The beach is absolutely amazing! However the vendors were harassing us every 5 seconds. We wanted to enjoy some peace and quiet and we got that by actually being in the ocean. Our driver was excellent and he did his best to avoid the protests and traffic. My husband and I think that covid may have spiked the number of vendors fighting for survival by clinging to tourists.

Hayzar was an excellent host and the trip couldn't have been better. The driver was courteous and professional. The beach was beautiful and, more importantly, their location is at the perfect spot. Service and food/drinks at the location were excellent as well. Highly recommended!!

Beautiful day at the beach

Excellent day trip to a beautiful beach! Our guide was very thoughtful. After pick up we stopped at a one stop store where we had time to pick up breakfast, coffee, atm, etc. The drive is approximately 1 hour, but well worth it. Lunch and drinks were great. Didn't have any major issues with the locals trying to sell things. Guide was very protective of the guests and remained nearby all day. Lounge chairs available for additional rental fee. Cocktails available also. Everything was very convenient. Bar was steps away from the beach. Overall very enjoyable day. Would do it again.

Wonderful Day at the Beach

Thank you to Hayzar and Jose for a wonder trip to the beach! We were picked up from our AirBnB, took a quick stop at a grocery store for any missing essentials, then made our way to the beach. Given that it was windy season, instead of the short boat ride we walked to the beach; sincerely appreciate the judgement call in the best interest of our safety. Fruit, water, and a shaded awning were provided. We also opted for the lunch. Thank you again for a wonderful day, Hayzar!

Beautiful Beach!

Playa Blanca was absolutely beautiful and the lunch we had was fantastic! It was helpful that we stopped at the supermarket prior to our trip in case we needed anything additional. However, based on my experience, I wouldn’t necessarily recommend this tour. We walked through sand for 10 minutes to reach our destination which wasn’t ideal if you have health issues. Once there, we were introduced to the vendors known by the host. He mentioned that massages were 80mil for 30 minutes, which is fine. He set up the massages for us, we told him 30 minutes before lunch (for 30 minutes - the only timeframe he mentions). He said that he would let the masseuses know. They showed up earlier than scheduled and the massage went on past 30 minutes. We aren’t wearing watches so werent aware of time. I’m also not the strongest in Spanish. We felt a bit set up because there was a language barrier and our host made it a point that he would help facilitate anything we needed. When they showed up, he wasn’t there. We did pay for our massages (which were very nice) but we want to warn you to be specific when setting these up. Also, this isn’t the place to go if you want to truly relax without being bothered. There will be vendors passing by every couple of minutes to see if you’d like to buy something.

Great day

Our tour guide Hassan (I think that is how it’s spelled) was awesome. Picked us up from our hotel, stopped in a supermarket for anything we forgot, and explained everything about our day. He was very helpful and made sure we were not taken advantage of by vendors. The day itself was relaxed, not too many panhandlers but maybe is the time of year we went (mid feb). The food served was delicious, the fish was fresh. We enjoyed our jet ski experience. Overall a good day, would definitely recommend and use again if we go back to Cartagena.
