Rincon del Mar is a small fishing village, located on the western part of the Caribbean coast, 4 hours from Cartagena. The inhabitants of this magical place are the nicest people we have met on the coast. The atmosphere is fantastic, authentic, exotic, and relaxing.
With its wide white sandy beach and palm trees, Rincon is a hidden paradise. There are different hostels and two slightly higher standard establishments. Travelers come to Rincon Del Mar to relax for a few days. Moreover, the San Bernardo Islands are only 45 minutes away by boat.
There is not only the beach in Rincon but also many other possibilities such as:
Organize a fishing trip with the locals (angling, trolling or harpooning)
Take a walk in the dry tropical forest to discover the fauna and flora of this type of environment.
Observe coral reefs by snorkeling or scuba diving
Swimming at night in the midst of bioluminescent plankton. An incredible experience.
Take a tour of the San Bernardo Islands
Lazing on the beach with a book and a cocktail in your hand.
So, you ready to add this beautiful place to your Colombian itinerary?
Rincon del Mar is a secluded beach town where the touristic infrastructures aren't perfect. Don't be surprised (and don't complain) if there is a power cut. The town is settled along the beach, and it takes 20 min to cross it. There are two areas: The beach center and the beach after the bridge (quieter and lovelier).
There is no local agency in Rincon del Mar. The easiest way is to ask your hostel/hotel if they know reliable locals to show you around. Fishers know the best snorkeling spots, some other locals are guides for hiking in the dry forest, etc.
Where to sleep? What to do? Where to eat? How do you get from one place to another?
