Sleeping in a Hammock on a Deserted Island…

Make sure you wear a good sun hat in Playa Blanca!

Make sure you wear a good sun hat in Playa Blanca!

Ok not quite deserted, but Playa Blanca off the coast of Cartagena, Colombia is an island of outstanding natural beauty, fortunately not ravaged by big resorts and hotel chains. In fact you will most likely sleep in a hammock on the beach here and you get whatever is available when you step off the boat! Aaaaah the boat! Part of the excitement is not really knowing if you will actually get to this paradise beach, after the madness at the Ferry Station in Cartagena and using your best Spanish you end up on a beautiful scenic journey across the turquoise seas of the Caribbean heading to the Rosario Islands. Once you arrive on this island paradise you sleep wherever there is an available hammock, eat whatever has been caught that day and take in the view with the friends you meet along the way…
