There is a marvellous selection of water sports at Sport Baru's luxury 16 room beach resort.
Despite its athletic name, we highly doubt you’ll be lacing up your Nike Airs to do rounds around the beach.
Instead, Sport Baru will inject a more tropical spin to your dry gym workout with jetski and kayak options to dip your wet feet into.
There are 16 rooms of the posh cabaña variety, and a new attractive modern section where the rooms have a cleaner feel.
Plopped in the middle of nowhere, Sport Baru gives you that off-the-tourist-route feel, yet enough atmosphere to keep A.D.D holiday sorts occupied. Follow our suit, head to the beach bar; order a Coco Loco and spark up a conversation with fellow island hoppers.
The raised wooden cabins sit above the beach nestled amongst the palm trees. You’ve got your picture perfect Caribbean cliché exteriors: bamboo-thatched roofs, expansive wooden balconies and sweeping views. Inside is a posher affair, which means comfortable beds and walls thin enough to permit the hypnotic sounds of the waves, but thick enough to drown out the white noise.
Rise with the sunshine on your face and a glass of freshly squeezed OJ in your bronzed hand before picking at the groaning breakfast buffet table, full to gills with Colombia’s finest produce. That should set you up nicely for a day of beach massages, boat excursions or mangrove hopping.
Simple, stylish and slow-paced. What more could you want from a beach retreat?
With the exception of Playa Blanca, the most prized and expansive of Baru's beaches, the beaches on Cartagena's biggest island other are small, intimate and often lined with mangroves.
If you're slightly disappointed with the urban beaches, Baru will exceed your beach expectations. Located a short 45-minute speedboat ride away you have more than enough powdery stretches of sand to keep you happy. Unlike the Rosario Islands, Baru is also accessible by land.
The island's biggest meeting point is the protected cove of Cholon, where beach revellers let rip with some water bound tail-gating on private boats equipped with blaring sound systems and party as if they were auditioning for a hip hop video.
If you're craving something a little more laid-back, there's some lovely beach front properties and beach clubs springing up on Baru for Colombia's moneyed classes that provide all the modern comforts for luxury beach combers.
