Playa Scondida, Baru Island
Great place.
Magical little place. Rafa and the staff were very attentive and accommodating without being intrusive and the cooking was delicious and authentic. Playa azul is a hidden gem. There is some annoying beach peddling but nothing remotely like you will experience in Cartagena or the big beaches like playa Blanca or Boca grande. I would strongly urge you to avoid anything the beach peddlers offer that is not factory sealed (we got sick from a coconut drink that we later found out was made from their local "rainwater" supply. After that incident, the owner, Fernando graciously took us into the village of Baru to get some much needed antibiotics, which was above and beyond or expectations. Highly recommended!

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 !
