  • This Is What We Love

    • This beach resort has not one, but two, drop-dead-gorgeous beaches to choose from
    • We’d swim here for their coconut lemonades alone. Seriously, no one rocks the Limonada Colombiana quite like these dudes
    • Cutting through the water on a kayak like a champion. There are plenty of non-motorized water toys to use if you’re craving a more active day on the water
    • Kicking back with a book on one of the most relaxing beaches in Cartagena
  • What You Need To Know

    • A buffet lunch of fried fish, coconut rice and patacones is provided for all day guests. If you have any special food requirements, please specify with staff on arrival
    • The water can be pretty choppy on the way back so bring a plastic bag to protect your belongings
    • Depending on sea conditions, boats may need to return earlier than anticipated to the city. This is due to security & safety reasons enforced by the Colombian Maritime Authority.

    Our Full Review

    The menu is pretty ambitious, clocking up alot of miles with stop offs all over the globe, but it's the homegrown classics, like their ceviches which tickle our tastebuds the most. Just make sure you fuel your snack attack with some liquid love. Their cocktails are the reason why you clamber up those stairs.

    The intimate balcony area that gives the restaurant its name is a wonderful spot to meet new friends and cultures or get closer acquainted with old ones and tune in to the local groove.

    The hottest seats in the house are the bar-style tables overlooking the mayhem on Plaza San Diego, where you can goggle at the masses of students, artists, wanderers and dance maestros frothing up the cobbled streets below into a frenzy.
