It is pretty certain will be ripped off on the boat rides, the chairs and umbrellas if you don’t speak Spanish The food is over priced and the beach is small, crowded, and noisy. There are also many boats, jet skis, and inflatable tubes ploughing...More

Really had a great time on the beach, there are different bars with all kinds of music, catering to all budgets with food and drinks. Some of the beach front setups have classy seating, small beds hammocks, serve cocktails and fish, a really nice experience...More

Don’t ever go there. The locals are scam artists that live to take advantage of the trustful and naive tourists. We got tickets at one of the many a “travel agencies” that are located on the Bocagrande area thinking it’d be better but all those...More

The beach overall is nice but watch out not to fall for the boat operators on the Cartagena side. We went with one of their boats and overpaid (after already negotiating prices down) and were promissed to have chairs on the other side which we...More

I can't rate any Cartagena beach 5 stars because they all seem to have way too many hawkers. Going to a beach is all about relaxation, soaking up the sun, having a few drinks, and if I'm honest, looking at women. That said, the beach...More

We loved Punta Arena, specially for it not being as touristic as Playa Blanca! We spent the whole afternoon in Peace, quiet, at the lovely beach and water. To get there, you can either close deals with the travel companies, or just go to Bocagrande...More

We were asking some locals for a great and not too crowded beach and all referred to this place. Finally there we realized, that the beach is as beautiful as they told us, but there were more people than expected, even if it was not...More

Don't bother wasting your time at the local beaches in Cartagena. Not only do they lack clear water and beautiful sand, they are full of vendors that will literally harass you in order to buy things. Hop the 10.000COP, 15min boat ride to Punta Arenas,...More

The beaches are exactly the same as in Cartagena. They tell you a price but then they want to charge you something else. It is very expensive for a 15' boat drive. Then they offer you overcharged food and they don't let you see the...More
