This was the best tour I have the pleasure of being on! Jorge was the absolute best, he kept it entertaining and educational at the same time. He educated us about the histories of the islands and entertained us upon arrival. They company picked us up and dropped us off by to our hotel, so that was super convenient. The lunch on the beach was amazing, if I had to tour again I would not hesitate to ask for Jorge.

We would definitely recommend this trip to get away from Cartagena and enjoy the because blue water of the island. There were a total of four stops. It was good to have the option to skip the snorkeling and enjoy the beach ppl on our tour said the snorkeling was great, we just didn't feel like it. We could have done without the Cholon stop, as it was our least favorite compared to the others, mostly because the others were really beautiful beaches. Our guide Arturo was attentive and fun. It's a full day of sunshine so don't forget to bring sunscreen, towels, and cash.

It was lots of fun, snorkeling right from the boat was good we liked our guide Jesus. This trip goes to several beaches, and most are not the standard places that most Rosario trips take you to.

George was our guide for the trip to Rosario Island and we enjoyed the trip. The day trip takes you to different islands which are very beautiful to snorkel, swim and for local food. George is a lot of fun and informative guide... The touring company is very professional and picked and dropped us from/to our hotel at the exact time.. I would highly recommend this tour and go with George as your guide.

LOVE LOVE LOVED this tour. It made me angry that I only got to spend a day trip! Every beach was great and the water was so warm! It was a little confusing at first what we were doing leaving our stuff at one beach and doing a bit of island hopping in between but it was so worth it! Would stay longer next time!

Not bad at all. Read some reviews online of similar trips not going so well so was a bit apprehensive at first but glad I chose this one. The guides were helpful and informative. Just wish we spent a bit more time in the second beach as the first one was a bit bland..
