Manzanillo del Mar, Cartagena

(95+ reviews on the web)
Beach
Experience authentic Caribbean Colombia at Manzanillo del Mar, a peaceful beach in a working-class neighborhood. Those looking for modern tourist attractions may be in for a disappointment, as this relatively underdeveloped village offers few amenities. Restrooms aren't what most Westerners are used to, and many restaurants are simply wooden shacks. Add Manzanillo del Mar to your Cartagena travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Cartagena itinerary builder.

  • UNS quiet beach, with fishermen who go out in their boats, if you want to have lunch there, don't expect a normal letter of the menu, really fish freshly brought from the sea and you choose which you will eat and as... What a delight

  • I liked the beach. The beach was clean. It is a village of fishermen a little dirty and hard to reach but cordial people with music champeta at full volume. You can eat fish fried with fried plantain and rice with coconut typical of the region. Good flavor. They are cordial but the site is impaired. Where you eat are plastic tents damaged by which charge additional food unannounced. Charged me carp 20,000 and 15,000 service. This part makes it feel one cheated. It is not equivalent to the place. I suggest to fix kiosk with Palm roof similar to others who are on this beach. Fish 38,000 more lemonade to 10,000 Sale price price similar end to eat in walled city.

  • Manzanillo of the sea is approximately 35 minutes from the city of Cartagena. Back from the tour of the volcano of totumo you arrive to this place for lunch. The place is small with little dirty normal beaches but none of the other world. It is a quiet place where people having lunch at the edge of the sea.
