You can get to Blue Apple Beach using our shuttle boats, renting your own boat, or on public transport.
The ride is about 25 minutes. We are located within the bay of Cartagena which means that the infamous rough afternoon seas do not affect us.

PIMP YOUR RIDE
If you're a group or looking for the best experience, we recommend chartering a private speedboat for the day. Leave and return to Cartagena when it suits you and enjoy the most comfortable ride available, with your own soundtrack.
DO IT LIKE A LOCAL
Public transport is awesome. It saves energy and fuel. You engage with local life. It puts us all in the same boat (literally, in this case). And here on the island, it funnels money back into the local economy. What's not to love?
Start from La Bodeguita and pay a 12,000 peso tourist tax. Once inside, just say ¡Bocachica! at everyone until someone puts you on a boat. Hand over 7,000 pesos - the boat is paid in advance. There's no timetable. This system is highly fuel efficient and not-so-highly time efficient. The boat will leave when it is full. Might be in 5 minutes. Might be in 30 minutes. Bring a book, your water flask and your most laid back self. Do not worry if your bag is up in the bows with a chicken and a strange man in a hat.
Our village, Bocachica, is the last stop after about 30 minutes. Here, disembark and yell ¡Playa Mamon! and / or ¡Blue Apple! until someone puts you on the back of a motorbike taxi. When you see our gates, hop off and hand over 10,000 pesos. If you're not travelling so light, you can request a 'motocarro' - which is like a motorbike and a tuctuc had a baby - for 30,000 pesos or your bags might just go on a second bike. Always get on and off motorbikes on the left hand side, to avoid burning your leg. The trip is 5 minutes through the village. Say hola to everyone you see. Just try it.
And that's it. Tell us your tall tale when you get to front desk, and we'll whip up a congratulatory cocktail, on the house.
