We were extremely lucky to end up at Baruchica as the choices are limited for a few days outside of Cartagena unless you have a major bankroll to spend. If you are looking for a place that is neither a cookie cutter resort nor a high end spa this is the place to relax and meet fellow travelers (mostly from South America). Olga, Marcello and staff are wonderful people who make you feel at home and help you explore the area. The food and rooms are excellent. If you like birding bring your glasses and enjoy. Ask Olga if you can go with her as she drives around to get the freshest local fruits,eggs and fish and you will see a real slice of coastal Colubia which 99% of tourists miss.Olga is a very special person who makes sure everyone is involved in the dinner conversation.
