Rosario Islands Day Trip from Cartagena

Rosario Islands Day Trip from Cartagena

After hotel pickup in Cartagena, venture to the marina and board your stylish sea vessel. Set sail over the shimmering sea to the idyllic Rosario Islands, an attractive archipelago favored by Colombian locals and tourists alike; declared a protected national park in 1977, the protected waters teem with troves of tropical fish.

Continue to cruise over the water, stopping at a selection of islands, one of which is completely private. Jump from the boat into the crystal clear Caribbean waters below, swimming and splashing in some of the clearest and cleanest water in the world. Sink your toes into the silken sands as you enjoy the refreshing shade of a palm tree, listening to the gentle lapping of the waves.

Enjoy a freshly prepared lunch and stop at an aquarium to observe the aquatic wonders of the wildlife (optional); watch the playful performances of dolphins and seals, and observe the fascinating flora and faun of the exhibitions before returning to your boat for the sail back to Cartagena. Watch the sun sink into the shimmering sea before finishing your tour with magical memories.

The beach was beautiful. You get there around 10:30 and leave around 3pm. Lots of lounge chairs both in the shade and sun, , good water for swimming, pool, activities. Rodrigo was a great guide--super friendly and answered all of our questions. Drinks at the bar and lunch were great. Wish we could have spent more of the day there!

This tour really surprised me with how organized and memorable it was. Most tours I've been on have a habit of taking you to places where you only spend 15 minutes - 1 hour only. We were taken to a beautiful Island where La Isla del Sol hotel is situated and given 4 hours to do whatever our hearts desired from walking through the local village and seeing the secret mangroves, scuba diving, snorkeling, etc. We also had a flexible meal of fried fish or chicken with coconut rice, patacon, yuca, and soup. We also had the option of choosing a lobster and having it freshly prepared for us and i'm not the biggest fan of lobster, but I tried it anyway. And wow! That was the best lobster Iobster I've ever had. By the end of those four hours, I was so beat and ready to head back home. It was definitely a memorable and very satisfying adventure. I definitely recommend this tour!

This was beautiful! It was nice being at an almost private beach/resort without being harassed by vendors and massage people at the local beaches in Cartagena. I highly recommend it!...just make sure you bring enough money for extra expenses at the island.

Tour was amazing. Snorkeling in the deep blue water. Enjoying the coral reef. Drinking Caipirinhas by the pool. This is a must try if you visit Cartagena

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.

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!
