Travel Playa Blanca & Islas del Rosario

Playa Blanca de Baru, Colombia

Travelling to Playa Blanca & Islas del Rosario is an hour away from Cartagena, Colombia which makes it an ideal day trip. I booked this trip with The Cartagenian. Myself and 3 other fellow backpackers were to meet at the gate of the wall city under La Puerta del Reloj at 9:00 a.m. and then taken to the dock.

The trip cost 55.000 pesos ( $27 CAN) which included the speed boat ride to Islas del Rosario ( You can visit the aquarium or do snorkelling. Entrance & rental not included) and a yummy lunch.

I recommend if you are going for the day, you just go straight to Playa Blanca so you can more beach time. I found because we went to Islas del Rosario, we didn’t have enough beach time at Playa Blanca.

It was at Playa Blanca that I saw for the first time in my life ladies with ass implants! I was really shocked and confused when I saw them. Some of these ladies looked like cartoon characters. I also observed that their bikini bottoms have a lot less material on them. Are we North Americans conservative in our swimwear?

No idea. A traveller on the boat was screaming to the driver to stop the boat as it was going very fast. It was a speed boat he paid to go on. The entire boat was laughing. That part wasn’t on camera. If only I had a camera man filming?

Thank you so much for watching.
