Hostal Restaurante La Sirena has existed since 1986 and in 2003 it was extended and modernized. Of course it is still really basic in the accomodations. The hostel is located on the most beautiful part of Playa Blanca which is considered to be the most beautiful beach in this area of the Caribbean coast!
From each hut the warm and crystal-clear sea is no more than 50 meters away. At present the island Barú has no access to electricity, drinking water or telephone; however the Hostal Sirena offers all these facilities as a matter of course.
The 10 rooms (cabañas) are simple – people that come to this beach do not come to stay in their room All Cabañas have one or more beds (if desired with mosquito net), a fan, electric light and some of them also have their own bath and shower. The other Cabañas have a special bath hut with several showers and toilets located in the center of the property. You could also rent hammocks or camp with your own tent and enjoy a night under the starlit sky.
The restaurant offers a large variety of simple and national dishes. Of course we serve daily freshly caught fish (if you like you can join us one night fishing). The dishes are served in the central ‘Comedor’ (open hut). The cost for food and beverages are very reasonable compared to European conditions – imagine an oyster for 20 Cents, only 3 Euro for a Kilogramm of crayfish or 2-4 Euros for a main dish including beverage! In Colombia it´s possible!
Cartagena, the next city, is between 30-60 minutes by boat from Playa Blanca and we would be more than happy to recommend the most beautiful sites of interest or hotel recommendations – we could also arrange a personal guide for your sightseeing tour around Cartagena. Cartagena is a beautiful city with a breathtaking historical center, declared by UNESCO as a world heritage site. A walk through the fortress makes you imagine how 350 years ago warships and pirates had besieged this city
