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.

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.

The views are nice, and the aquarium is great, other than that you have a lot of free time to see the ocean from the beach.

After arrival they show us a lot of things to do and price.
Incredible! Even a walk costs 10.000 pesos colombianos. Everything has a price.
They have to advce you before contract the service that will have additional costs.

The trip was average, organisation was ok, we got all what was promised, however the trip was overprices compare to the local prices...
If you are in rush and don't have time to look around then go, otherwise...

Worst tour ever. Never had the tour operator come pick us up from the hotel. Will be providing a detailed email.

Wish I had a way to give a negative rating to this tour.
