Overall rating

4.1 / 5

We really liked it, it was better than we expected. The loungers they include are very simple, but for $ 60,000 COP we rented some super comfortable beds at the foot of the beach and much better than a lounge chair. The included lunch seemed super complete and delicious. And the most important thing is that the beach was supposed to be full of people but we were in an area called Playa Tranquila and that part of the beach was only for those of us who were going on this tour. So we were able to perfectly enjoy the beach just for ourselves.

This day trip to the beach is highly recommended. The turquoise water was warm and inviting. With transportation and lunch provided, this was true value for money. The tourist police patrol were on the beat, and I felt really safe. The tour guide, Alejandro (aka Alex) provided some helpful tips regarding dealing with vendors (e.g. women offering massages and men trying to sell trinkets). If you want to get away from the city and relax, this is your best bet.

Our tour was with Jesus, very kind and always gave us the training we needed, the place is very beautiful and you can walk along the beach without worries, beer at 5000 the best

Everything was very beautiful, the beach and the experience was wonderful. The guide José was very kind to the group. I highly recommend that you purchase this tour.

I had a really great time! It was just me and my friend and the tour was excellent and worth the money.
