Playa Blanca, Isla Baru

(2.5/5 based on 3,000+ reviews on the web)
Sun, snorkel, or simply relax at Playa Blanca, where turquoise waters, soft white sand, and lush coastal foliage attract scores of tourists and day-trippers. Kick back at one of the local beach bars with a bite to eat or a drink; alternatively, try buying some fresh oysters from the vendors who frequent the sandy stretch. Afterwards, grab your snorkeling gear and explore the underwater environment of coral and fish. However, be sure to keep an eye out for the jellyfish that frequent the area.

  • It is a beautiful island to enjoy a good night's sleep should educate those who work there, because that radiate through the pores want to financially abusing tourists rent a Chair is abusive, we were offered a Chair for $20000 an hour which is a price exaggerated if they have service mentality to tourists charge an appropriate price , but prefer the empty chairs since tourists we arrived no one rent additional told us that they stole there, as a strategy so that you get paid, you chair which creates absolute distrust observed that tourists before the time already wished to split if the natives give confidence to tourists, could turn this place into paradise and its economy would flow , yes ccambiaran mentality, and not hostigaran the tourist with massages and sales
