Baru and Playa Blanca Transportation and Lunch from Cartagena

Visit Playa Blanca in Baru on a full-day tour from Cartagena. Skip the hassle of renting a car and simply enjoy the scenery as you travel, as transportation to and from your Cartagena hotel is included. Arrive at Playa Blanca, one of the best beaches near Cartagena, and spend your free time lounging and exploring (snorkeling equipment provided), and enjoy an included lunch and beverage midday.

What to Expect

Meet your driver at your hotel's front desk area in the morning for prompt pickup in an air-conditioned minivan. Bring a towel with you as one is not otherwise provided.

Your driver takes care of the logistics and navigation and you simply sit back and relax on the drive to Playa Blanca in Baru.

Arrive at Playa Blanca and take a 5-minute walk to the beach, where sun chairs and hammocks are available for resting and lounging. You'll also have access to snorkeling equipment so you can explore the underwater world. Lockers are available.

At around 1pm, you will be treated to a lunch of dishes, including chicken and fish, with vegan and vegetarian options also available. A non-alcoholic drink is included with the meal.

When the time comes, catch your ride back to your Cartagena hotel.

Excellent Day Trip!

I thoroughly enjoyed myself on this day trip! Playa Blanca is absolutely beautiful with many activities offered to beachgoers. Although the beach peddlers are aggressive, you can firmly tell them no or just ignore them and they will go away. All-in-all was a great trip!...More

Wonderful day trip to Baru

Excellent day overall. Pickup and return to and from hotel in a comfortable van. A modest price for transportation to a beautiful beach and a delicious lunch. Jose is very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this trip.
