Playa Blanca Cartagena

Playa Blanca that is part of the peninsular of Barú and less than an hour south of Cartagena. The best way to get here is in a group of 4 and is to pay a taxi from Cartagena.
We stayed the night in a tent and was very relaxed when all the tourists have gone home. The beach looks clean, but just back to the beach behind the trees is just full of plastic bottles and bags. Impact of tourism and no infostructure. So take your rubbish with you or re-use your plastic bottles

Typical lunch fried fish, fried green plantain "patacon" and rice
