    The staff was so accommodating and helped us arrange a tour despite the fact that we had arrived past the normal time for said tour. Fernando and Will were absolutely great and went above and beyond to make our stay more pleasant.

    Relaxing time away from it all!

    We had a very relaxing time at playa Scondida. We are Canadian and spoke little Spanish, so it was difficult to communicate at times with hotel staff, but they were very accommodating and overall helpful! We enjoyed the food on-site, the hospitality, and the nature. The owners organized the ride to the ecolodge via car and helped us arrange the boat back to Cartagena. It was very helpful and helped us relax and just enjoy the surroundings.

    Isla Baru is an amazing area - and the thoughtful & friendly staff here made us feel at home. It's a special place. Would highly recommend the excursions on offer to Mangroves (which is really a tour of the local area of the island in general ie more than just mangroves & rosario. On Saturdays the bar/club on the other side of the bay attracts party boats, which are loud. So when we revisit we will probably avoid saturdays. mon-sundays is idylllic. We had a wonderful time. Thanks !

    A really cute place, with plenty of hammocks and well appointed rooms. Lounging in the shade on the dock with views of the water and islands was particularly relaxing. Only slight inconvenience was the heat and humidity, which brought a lot of mosquitos. Even with strong bug spray (provided by hotel) we still got bites.
