Where to stay

With its white sand beaches generating plenty of tourism, Isla Baru features plenty of established accommodations to meet the demand of Cartagena locals and international visitors. Take your pick from the main resorts along the island's coastline, providing standard to luxury rooms and a range of amenities to match their price bracket. Budget-conscious travelers will be pleased to find a couple of simpler hotels offering no-frills rooms and reduced onsite facilities--which shouldn't be a problem, considering the natural beauty of the island's beaches.
