To visit Isla Baru and the nearby Islas del Rosario, I wanted a more laid back, earthier experience than what I was getting in Cartagena, and I found it at Hotel Playa Scondida. The establishment really captures the natural beauty of the islands, but offers an exceptionally comfortable experience. Fernando and Beatriz, the owners, are like old friends by the time you sit down for dinner, one of the many and delicious meals included in the price. All sort of activities are at your disposal - kayaks and snorkeling gear are also provided, and it's very easy to arrange excursions to other islands - do not miss the aquarium or aviary on Isla Grande, and the coral reef snorkeling is absolutely fantastic.
If you want to commune with nature, make some new friends, and enjoy all the best of island culture, then Playa Scondida is for you!More
