Great place to disconnect!
This is a perfect place for a few days with a beach & limited contact. My Daughter I I stayed for 3 days & read books & stayed in the Hammocks. Here are a few points to make the most of it: 1. get your groceries in Cartagena & plan on having all your meals at the house. We did & it helped keep things low key. 2. There is no air conditioning but it is not needed the house essentially opens to the beach & the breezes keep the place cool 3. The water for the house is rainwater in cisterns Drinking water is in bottles. you may want to bring some. We used a UV pen to sterilize the water & used high end camping filters in water bottles. Showers are low pressure & water from the cisterns so limit your time to conserve water & the water is not heated - again it doesn't matter because showering like this before bed cools you off & is refreshing. 4. The house manager Manuel & the House keeper speak spanish & not english. 5. To have the housekeeper make your meals is 50,000 peso/day. 6. Plan to bring a lot of local cash. My taxi from Cartagena was 200,000 peso each way & the boat from the Baru Dock to the house was 120,000 peso each way. We arranged this from our hotel in Cartagena so we were well prepared. 7. Watershoes are a must. There is a lot of reef just off shore. The kayak was great & the water was great but wear the shoes they provide. All-in-All a perfect 3 day trip to the beach where we were able to completely disconnect from the world. The beach is gorgeous & the environment was fantastic!
