The day trip was amazing. Our guide, Jose, was fantastic. He gave great tips and guidance in both English and Spanish and accompanied us every step of the way. The bus picked me up at 6:30am (I was the first pickup) and we got to Baru around 9-9:30am. 1 hr drive plus picking up other guests. When we got to Baru, we walked about 5min down the beach to our section called "Mambo Beach". It felt like it was reserved solely for us. There we had lunch, mojarra frita and arroz con coco (so good and worth the trip alone). Mambo Beach hires locals to offer massages and souvenirs. Make sure you agree on the price beforehand. They also offer lockers to store your valuables at no extra cost. This made me feel better about going into the ocean while leaving my stuff on the beach. The beach itself is beautiful and the water is perfect. Make sure you bring lots of sun block and reapply!
The BEST day trip you could do for Playa Blanca! Jose is an amazing guide, so hospitable. The pick-up was fairly early (6:45 AM) but we got there at the perfect time - right before the beach starts getting super busy. Our guide took us to our own private, fenced-off restaurant of the beach where we soaked up the views and some of the sun in our very own gazebo. The set-up was perfect because you don't get too many vendors coming to you, but can look for anything you want to buy at a distance. The wait staff at Mambo Beach was also super awesome - we were able to order drinks, lunch, etc. with ease. Would HIGHLY recommend this trip - probably the best one for the best value out of everything I looked into re: Playa Blanca.
The Backpackers agency offered us an excellent service on the pass to Playa Blanca. The attention provided by your guide José was very good, as was the staff at the Mambo Beach restaurant. As an opportunity for improvement, they must manage to control the number of flies that are in the place when they serve food.
Super cool. The guide, José, is very attentive. The only problem is that there are too many flies, but the service is cool.
It was fantastic but you need being additional money for experiences, drinks and souvenirs.
