Visit the Beach at Barú


Barú, an island bound by the Bay of Cartagena, the Canal Dam, and the Caribbean Sea is a popular tourist spot with white and pink sand beaches and crystal clear water, allowing you to see as far as the ocean floor and its many colorful fish. There are nearby streams bordered by mangroves, mirrors of water, and underwater gardens. Bird watching is a popular activity here.



This city is an open-air museum, but has more than just culture and history to offer. Cartagena is also a traveler destination for beaches, water sports, and crafts, among other things.
