1.0
#4 of 6 in Beaches in Cartagena District
Relax on the fine sand and swim in the crystal clear waters of Playa De Punta Arena, a vibrant public beach full of local flair. You can book a round-trip boat tour with lunch included at one of the stalls along the shore, including some private charters that visit more remote, peaceful parts of the beach. Be aware that plenty of vendors here use pushy methods to sell their wares, and some may try to take advantage by hiking prices up.

  • In favour is that it is not a beach so crammed people like the bocagrande, the laguito or any beach in Cartagena, additionally seen sea and beach feels a little more clean, however the above is small, a little uncomfortable, addition being on an island, abuse sellers with prices and there is a good relationship cost-benefit and all plays in Cartagena as sellers become annoying.

  • This beach is closest to Cartagena. The crossing is accomplished through motor boat. approximately 30 minutes mind. The month of October is a period that has little movement of tourists on this beach. A few bars and restaurants work at this time. For those with little time is an option.

Where to stay in Cartagena

Despite its status as a major tourist hub, Cartagena offers a good choice of affordable places to stay. If you're looking to splurge, consider staying at one of the town's restored colonial-era buildings, which now house boutique hotels packed with modern amenities. Alternatively, several old monasteries in Cartagena's walled colonial district offer outstanding facilities at very high prices. Budget-conscious travelers can explore the many mid-range hotels and low-cost hostels clustered in Getsemani, an up-and-coming neighborhood and center of the backpacker scene.
