Perfect blend of fun for everyone!
, Mar 2020
We enjoyed our tour of the 3 islands from our friendly and knowledgeable tour guide, John Wayne. The snorkel session would have been better if we had not been required to wear lifejackets. Fins were also not provided. Nice fish and coral though! Loved the private island relaxing time at stop #2, but Cholon (the party island), not so much. The boat ride back to Playa Blanca (starting point) into the waves and wind was exhilarating and fun! Sit in the front of the boat for a roller coaster thriller or in the back to tame it down as much as possible. The traditional Colombian lunch back at Playa Blanca was delicious and we appreciated the vegetarian option. Bring an extra water bottle with you (one bottle is provided).
Amazing day trip

Terrible Tour Company

The tour is good in theory- but not in execution. Driver and tour guide were lost at every step of the way so it took 2.5 hours to pick everyone up. Tour guide would never update us in what what going on, and took him over 2 hours to do basic introduction. We were told to be ready at 6 AM. Got picked up at 7 AM and it was not until 8:45 of doing never ending circles around town picking people up that the tour guide introduced himself and told the group what was happening. Giving 2 stars because the restaurant they took us for lunch had amazing food and drinks to it helped the experience a little. My advice - find this tour, with a better tour company.
The boat was too small The food was not great.didnot Worth the money. same ticket for $98us at ARRIv

This was a really great experience. Everyone was very knowledgeable and helped us throughout the entire trip. The water was beautiful. The boat ride was extremely memorable. We wanted to do this tour again the next day. I would recommend this tour to everyone who wants to see the islands.
Rosario & Cholon

We had a great tour guide who spoke both English and Spanish. The boat ride out to Rosario can get a bit choppy so be sure to sit towards the back of the boat. The few islands we stopped on were small and just meant for observing the scenery and wading the in water. Don't expect there to be shopping, restaurants, etc. But it's a great look at how the locals live. The water was crystal blue, water, and we had a great time!
Great Time

The tour was well managed and the guide Jorge was very helpful. Bring cash if you plan on drinking on the beach - be mindful there will be people trying to sell you stuff at every turn.

This tour was amazing!!! The beaches were absolutely stunning and the experience was perfect. The tour guides were great, especially Jorge- he was very patient, knowledgeable, and funny. Oh and the food was awesome too, great coconut rice. It was definitely one of the highlights of my trip!
