Property info

Hotel Playa Manglares Isla Baru offers confortable and exclusive beachfront accommodation in Baru Island. With a private beach on Barabacoa´s Bay and five rooms in all, this small but cozy bed and breakfast is known for its warm welcoming and tailored hosting. Baru Island is the perfect way of completing your stay in Cartagena with an enchanting rural touch. Located one hour away from Cartagena's international airport, the area is popular for snorkeling in the Rosario Island's coral reefs and hiking in the nearby exotic Bird Sanctuary. We're located in Baru Island's south coast, in a calm, secluded and private accessed beach, opposite to busy Playa Blanca. ***During rainy season, Barbacoa Bay can become opaque or muddy due to the fresh water of a nearby river that brings sediment into the bay.*** At Playa Manglares, each room comes with a private bathroom fitted with a shower and wifi access. The bed and breakfast has a private beach area, and guests can enjoy the restaurant's delicious homemade cooking. Free private parking is also available on site. You will find concierge services at the property.

Neighborhood info

The hotel's privately accessible beach front is perfect for relaxing in a hammock under the mangroves. We highly recommend visiting the bird sanctuary in Baru Island (5 min. away from the hotel). You also don't want to miss the snorkeling boat trip to the Rosario Islands and it's succulent grilled lobster lunch.
