PEÑAS SEA is a private property in the Caribbean Sea. It is the place to relax, enjoy the view and the nearby beaches of pristine white sand warm water. The house is located in Cholon, Baru Island, which is part of the Natural Park Corales del Rosario. PEÑAS SEA has its own private dock where you can tie up your boat, read a book or enjoy the sun. WHAT TO DO IN THE AREA This area is ideal for water sports such as windsurfing, diving, snorkeling, fishing, water skiing swimming and cycling. Alfredo, the manager of the home can lead to fish, snorkel or to nearby coral reefs. He can also take them to Baru, a nearby village of fishermen and craftsmen. There you can buy food and beer at this and withdraw money with your credit card at the ATM (ATM). PLACES NEARBY ISLANDS OR The Rosario Islands are only fifteen minutes away by boat. You can visit the aceanario where you will enjoy a show of dolphins, sharks, turtles, groupers, barracudas and other marine species. The world famous "Playa Blanca" is just 25 minutes by boat or land. The cheapest way to get there is on a motorcycle taxi and value es10 USD per person. ROOMS All rooms have bathroom, air conditioning and mini-split Direct TV. If you need internet, you can connect to the Internet via Wi-Fi at no extra cost. FOOD & BEVERAGE We recommend you to buy everything you need in Cartagena except fish and shellfish as these last are brought daily to the dock of the house by local fishermen. The house has a fully equipped kitchen and a charcoal grill ready to be lit. If you want to cook at home and need help in the kitchen, you can hire Ana, a local chef which will prepare delicious dishes like fried red snapper or grilled with delicious coconut rice. If you do not want to cook, on a beach in front of the house you may purchase food prepared by locals. You can get a good fish dish with coconut or white rice, plantains and salad for 15 USD. You can also buy cold beer for 1.50 USD. GETTING FROM CARTAGENA. A boat or boat will take you to the house in 45 minutes. A 4x4 car will take you there in 1.5 H. The cheapest way to get there is by boat or speedboat. The price is 9 euros per person each way. These boats / speedboats depart from Market Bazurto Cartagena Monday to Saturday between 8 and 10 PM. To return to Cartagena, boat / speedboat pick you up at the house at 5:45 am. If you do not want to go back so early in the morning, you may return by plane or private boat. (I can let you know the cost of returning to Cartagena depending on the number of people and type of transport). By land: Jose, a friend who drives a taxi can pick you up at the airport, make a pararda in a supermarket in Cartagena so you can buy food and weigh up to 4 people 120 USD. Feel free to drop me a message if you have any questions about Cartagena and / or my property on the island of Baru. Regards, Gabriel Pena

  • We loved so much this place that on 8 nights we spend there we've decided not even to go to Cartagena's Historical Center.... that how GOOD & Excellent was every aspect about-it.
    This place was exactly what we were looking for!!! The expectations were exceeded...
    The kindness of the host was unbelievable that myself having a hospitality experience of more than 15 years - never experienced such attention to details even on the 5 star hotels.
    The place:
    -Just like the pictures but better!! a paradise
    -Comfortable & calm... the perfect relax
    -The cholon bay of blue clear and clean waters just some steps from your bed... just like a natural pool for everyday swim
    -Very close to hidden solitary beaches to were you are being taken by boat at anytime you want
    -Very private and the breeze that runs through this place is amazing

    The Host:
    -The best attention I have ever had
    -Lots of attention to details and organized all for us... even before taking us to the airport gave us a tour though the old historical area of Cartagena... UNBELIEVABLE!!!

    THIS IS A PARADISE AND WAS VERY HARD TO LEAVE... DEFINITELY WE'LL VISIT AGAIN ON OUR NEXT STOP THROUGH COLOMBIA!

  • Gabriel's house was great, although one must be prepared to travel. The boat to get there takes 30 mins and leaves from a sketchier part of town . Once there expect basic, yet very clean accommodations. The surrounding beaches are fantastic and Gabriel is very accommodating!

  • Thanks Gabriel for the great stay we had at your place. The house is amasing and we would highly recommend it to our friends.

    + confortable house fully equiped, great garden with hamocs, chicken and pavo real,
    + easy access to the sea, tobogan, pier with boats,
    + assistance of Alfredo, always there to help,
    + fishermen selling fish and lobster every morning at the pier
    - long and expensive journey to get there,
    - the place could be cleaner upon arrival,

    Hasta pronto,

    Sebastien
