Really good tour, our guide Jose was great and very attentative. The lunch was ok but the real attraction is the amazing beach. The trip would have been perfect without the constant annoying vendors. Not the tours fault, just be prepared, they do not understand No thank you in any language. You must be rude or they continue to push and annoy you.
First of all, I must say chosen hotel and its facilities were very weak. Toilets were so dirty, it was impossible to use. Sea was full of rocks and we had to walk another part away from our part.
Minibus picked up us in the morning, however in return driver refused to drop off us to our hotel. And then I saw minibus passing in front of our hotel.
As a whole, We weren't happy to join this tour even in Caraips.
I had high hopes for this one, but again Viator you highly disappointed us in Colombia. So buyer beware! We were taken to a very grimey part of Baru beach situated at a hostel. There were flies, there were tons of peddlers who would even just hang out there, yet we paid for this?!?! The beach loungers were in bad shape and no umbrellas for shade. The toilets was not flushable, I mean these were terrible accommodations! Ok maybe the meal was decent, but otherwise the minute we got there and began swatting the flies and the peddlers away, we regretted going and were counting the minutes for our exit. Mind you on the way back it began to pour and we stood waiting in the rain for the driver, a very disorganized exit. DO NOT BUY!
No need for a tour guide, he was literally non existing and left us on ur way back. Beaches are polluted with trash, vendors keep annoying u and charge u literally for air, water is nice colour but not clean as well.
Tour was just ok, not great as we were hoping. We were picked up 45min late from hotel in a tour van. Then after we had driven about 20min towards beach, they realized they forgot some passengers in a different hotel so we had to go all the way back. All that being said, we arrived about 2hr late to Playa Blanca. The Viator tour description states that tour is 7hrs, that is definitely not the case. I'd say it's about 5 hours. Beach is very nice/warm and clean. Vendors are EXTREMELY annoying they will offer you massages, crabs, shrimp, braids, drinks, balloons, etc. Hostel is decent: 2 hammocks, beach chairs, locker with a lock included and the lunch is very good! In order to shower after the day is over, it cost about 3,000 pesos for a 2min shower so make sure it is quick. The one bright spot is Jose the tour guide, he was super friendly, helpful and wanted to make sure we were doing ok during our time there.
It’s hard to relax on this beach; the constant interruptions by the vendors make t next to impossible. I went in the water to get away from them, but the jet ski vendors were there too! I sympathize with them but it’s not pleasant.
