Pretty Good Value, for a Great day at the Beach
Mark_G
, Jan 2022
Was picked up at our Airbnb apartment on time... the driver and tour guide were very nice. The tour guide spoke English so that helped me a lot because my Spanish is still pretty bad. On that day only one other person was picked up at another hotel on the wat so was only a total of 3 guests on the bus. The drive from Cartagena to the beach was close to one hour, and was nice to see some of the local countryside along the way. . The 3rd guest was dropped off on the way to another location, so was just me and my wife left. The last few kilometers to the beech was on some pretty rough road and the driver had to slow down to near walking speed.. the ruts made it a bit uncomfortable during that part of the trip. After we got out of the bus we had to walk to the beach and one stretch of the entrance onto the beach was down a pretty sketchy and rocky hill so I recommend wearing sturdy shoes.. Flip-flops may not so be a good idea on this part of the road. I would not recommend anyone who needs help walking trying that rocky hill. Once you hit the beach however you forget all of that as the beech is quite awesome. Very nice sand and clear waters. We arrived early about 9:30am so was not busy with people. The tour guide took us about a 10 minute walk along the beach to "our spot" were we could rent a Umbrella and lounge chairs to relax. Our package included lunch but they also provided and early snack of fresh fruit as soon as we arrived to out spot about 9:45am. A nice touch. Later we order a few beers through the day and then they served lunch right to our spot. We had the fish and it was quite good. Our guide came and got us at 2:00pm to begin our trek back home. By that time of the day the beach was getting really crowded with people and other boat tours arriving.. so it was a good time to leave. Overall is a very good value for what you get. I would do this tour again no problem next time for sure. Enjoy

Booked this trip at the last minute. The beach and water are beautiful and the lunch option (we chose fish) was outstanding. The drinks on the beach were just okay. Our driver Jeido was fantastic.

Exactly what we need, nice tour guide
Xiaofan_C
, Nov 2021
The tour is basic and that's exactly what we needed. We didn't feel like island hopping and I'm glad that we didn't. The tour guide called me the night before mentioned they changed departure time from 7:30 am to 7:00 am, I was a bit surprised. But I am very happy that we did, we got there early, and feel like we have the place to ourselves. In addition, they also took us to a little bit quite part of the beach and we love it. There are a lot of sales and vendors that will approach you. Bit they're all super friendly and just want to make a living. Treat them nice and they will walk away if you don't want to buy anything.

Paradise with Predatory Vendors
Tania_M
, Feb 2021
The beach is absolutely amazing! However the vendors were harassing us every 5 seconds. We wanted to enjoy some peace and quiet and we got that by actually being in the ocean. Our driver was excellent and he did his best to avoid the protests and traffic. My husband and I think that covid may have spiked the number of vendors fighting for survival by clinging to tourists.

Hayzar was an excellent host and the trip couldn't have been better. The driver was courteous and professional. The beach was beautiful and, more importantly, their location is at the perfect spot. Service and food/drinks at the location were excellent as well. Highly recommended!!
