On that morning, Luis and I woke up with the sound of birds chirping.We did some stretching together on the beach before we started to pack our stuff. We planned to leave but we didn’t want to go. It was hard to move from that little heaven. We both felt a day in this wonderful bay wasn’t enough. Luis persuaded me to stay for one more night instead of continuing our ride to Santa Marta. We knew we wouldn’t get this kind of paradise every day.

To be honest, I doubt it. Despite all the beauty, there were some alerts I had in mind such as the water we shower was salty and it was quite the same as the water from the beach. We run out of food and water because we only planned to stay for one night. That said we needed to buy food on the beach and it would cost extra money, compare to supermarket food.

Luís asked one of the locals how much was a meal in there. He told us that would be 25000 pesos for a fresh fish good enough for 2 or a grilled chicken for 20000 pesos. For Colombians, the price is quite pricey but being in a place like this and hard to reach anything around it was more than reasonable. We did a bit of bargain though but they didn’t drop the price so we booked the fish for lunch and the grilled chicken for dinner and we stayed another day in paradise! Woohoo!!

Obviously, we made a good choice. We had the chance to see a lot of brown pelicans after the fishermen came from the ocean. They were so close to the beach that we could make some really cool photos. It was like Live National Geography in front of us.

Before we immersed our self’s into the turquoise water and after Luis recorded our experience in Bahia Concha thru his sketch as you can see in here.

Don’t forget to follow our journey thru his sketch on Facebook and Instagram!

As the day goes in Colombia, the sun becomes stronger and right straight on our heads. We started to feel starving and dehydrated, but not for too long, the guy who arranges our lunch came with a big plate covered with aluminum foil. And just like the guy said it was definitely more than enough for two persons. After awhile traveling in Colombia, we haven’t eaten any fish, and being on the beach we asked for the grilled fresh fish the fishermen caught in that morning. It was really tasty!! But unfortunately, we were so hungry that we forgot to take a photo of it…

The second day in Paradise also rain at the end of the day but we were alright with it and it didn’t bother us. We learned from the day before to get inside the tent before it get’s dark and this way avoid the mosquitos to attack us. We slept early and saved our energy to continue our journey on the next morning. For sure we will recommend Bahia Concha to anyone that goes to Santa Marta and wants to experience a safe, nice and calm beach.
