  • Nobody wants to go on holiday here. The stand is loveless, dirty and not inviting at all. The surroundings of the hotels are also not very appealing.

  • Don’t visit this beach! The vendors are everywhere. They are criminals. If you want people to rub dirty soap on you and shove warm crab in your face for outrageous amounts of money, this is the place ...  more »
  • First, you are greeted by several dark-skinned people who assign a place to one. Very politely they spread the bath towel. They want to serve drinks immediately. Then come the intrusive annoying traders. Then the aggressive masseuses and finally every local has his music running under the umbrella. Of course, everyone is louder than the other and no end is in sight. If you want to go to the toilet or wash yourself off for a short time, you pay again. A stuffed coconut (cocoloco) required 40,000 pesos. For three deckchairs 100,000!!!! Does this have anything to do with our white skin color? Really a naughty thing to people. Service these persons are not known in any way. Pure rip-off!!! Never again to a beach in Colombia!
