Beach at Playa Blanca

Video boat trip to Playa Blanca
Playa Blanca,definitely is the best beach close to Cartagena - you can reach it overland or by boat. With its white sand & crystal water Playa Blanca is probably one of the best "playas" in Colombia! It is definitely worth to stay there for some days.
There are several basic places where you can rent hammocks, get food & drinks.


  1. Excellent Martin-well done. Brian
