It is well-worth the trip. You get to see the Bay Inside of it and interesting Old Edifications of the time. Once you get to Rosario, you have the choice several activities Not Included in the Tour. You can relax and sunbathe at the beach or add more fun to your excursion.

Great experience! I suggest to everyone visiting Cartagena to take this trip. It's really worth of time.

The boat ride is only an hour and they stop once to tell you about the neat structures you see as you are leaving Cartagena. Then you get to the island and it is so beautiful! They have plenty of activities available as well as leaving you alone and letting you relax and enjoy the beach. There are craft vendors but they do not hunt you down. They let you approach them so you aren't hassled. I did snorkeling and the hike. Snorkeling was amazing because you see so many different fish. The snorkel guide will point out cool things as well as take really nice under water pictures and video for you as an option to purchase. The hike was more of a walk through the village and then they canoe you through the lagoons which was very cool. The food they serve for lunch was plentiful and delicious!

The tour was very enjoyable. We were picked up on time at our hotel, driven to the boat where our small group joined a few others. After dropping 2 other groups at their islands, we made our way to beautiful and calm Isla del Sol. The site is very nice, the food was great and the place very relaxing. Some local activities were offered, and we chose snorkelling with enthusiastic Marcelo. We saw beautiful corals and fish. On our way back, we took an alternate route and joined the Magdalena river. Really a thorough wonderful day!

Lovely trip to a beautiful island. Lots of extra activities that cost $15-$20 extra, but it was nice to chill and drink beers!

Wonderful little island in the Caribbean. Great fish lunch and fun catamaran ride. The island is off the coast of Columbia. For a fee you can snorkel or take a ride to a sister island where you can visit an aquarium. Recommended tour.

The viator tour was quite good. You leave the marina on a sleek super fast boat which takes you to the island. You are with approximately 40 people. The water is rough and wild-but pleasing!

Once on the island, you can go snorkeling, scuba or see an aquarium. We opted for snorkeling which was surprisingly pretty good.

Then a typical Colombian lunch of fish, rise and plantains. Not great but not bad either.

This was a good experience.

Tour guide was very nice and gave history details of the different forts we passed on the way to Rosario island.
Ride back to Cartagena was fun because of the choppy waves .

The beach itself was small but the staff were very attentive and no beach vendors were allowed, which was a plus.

This was a great day trip, with only some small things that could have made it perfect. The islands were beautiful of course. The lunch was excellent and still has me thinking about it-- fresh fish, yuca fries, rice, salad, and a dessert of cocadas. They offered massages and trips to the aquarium, snorkeling, and a hike, however it would have been helpful to know how much those activities cost before we arrived on the island. I didn't have enough cash to do everything I wanted to and could have easily taken out more cash from the ATM before getting on the boat if I had known the cost. I don't like to carry around a lot of cash I may not need, so I hadn't withdrawn any large amount beforehand. On the boat trip back to Cartagena, the water was too choppy so for safety reasons they took a different route. I appreciated the concern about safety and would recommend this trip to friends.

Really cool day, heading to the aquarium was hard if you don't speak Spanish.

The start of the tour was extremely manic. The dock is really unorganized. But once we were allocated to a boat, we had a great bilingual guide who explained the day, some of the sights out to the island and other notable information. The day out at the island was fantastic, there are plenty of activities to do whilst out there including kayaking, snorkeling, massages, scuba diving etc.

Great trip! Would definitely recommend for a getaway from the city for the day. Chose to stay at the eco-resort all day and relax. Drinks are cheap and the facility is well run.

Very nice islands and atmosphere, but the ride back on the boat was 2 hours with super strong wind so kinda ruined the pleasant experience, drop off is also not included

The tour guide promptly picked me up from the hotel, the tour guide dutifully translated everything in Spanish and English, the Rosario Islands are absolutely beautiful, just note that visiting the local aquarium really nice - I chose this one, snorkelling, scuba diving, massages all cost extra. But to play in the cordoned off beach or swim in the pool is nothing additional.

Very recommended.

It began a catastrophy with a great finally. The local agency in charged did not pick us up and asked us to meet in us in the port and then at the port they could find us. It was a nightmare. Very very, very stressful. This can be very stressful for someone who is not bilingual.
The three of us had a great time once we were at the island. My husband went snorkling and the other two swam in an area nearby. The water was beautiful and it was very relaxing. I had a massage as well. The food was good with perfect sanitation.. I recommend this trip. This trip can be boring if you do not swim, hike, snorking.

Leaving Cartagena by boat was interesting, with boats and forts to see. The island was rustic, to say the least, but it gave us a glimpse into life there. Friends went snorkeling and had fun. We took a walk and canoe ride with a guide (lots of walking for a short ride). Only 2 out of the whole boat went swimming at the beach at Isla Grande - the sheltered beach was small and unappealing, and the other option was deep water, so you had to be a confident swimmer. Lunch was OK - fish, but nothing special. I liked seeing the rather primitive town, and I speak Spanish so I could ask questions. This is a trip for the Columbians, and only for adventurous tourists.
