The boat was ok and crew as well. Except for the trip from Rosario to Barú where the driver changed and the boat felt like it was in a half pipe aside from the waves.
Islas del rosario are really nice. Snorkel is ok, best part was to get in the water to cope with the heat. A bit expensive though, 25000 COP for 40 minutes per person. Be careful with the mask and try it before leaving the side of the ship because my girlfriend got one that filtered water, a lot. I swapped with her and after trying to use it with no succes, ended only with the mask of the guide and no snorkel so...
Barú is really nice but the part where they take you is really dirty and overcrowded. Believe it or not locals are the ones that litter the most. The other bad part is that you arrive about 1300, lunch takes abt 15-20 min to arrive cold and you finish eating at 1400. At 1500/1515 you embark again the launch. So almost no time at Barú.
It took a lot of time to leave from Cartagena pier. After 0930 we left and they tell you to be there 0815/0830 with no reason cause it does not matter if everyone is already there, they are the ones that are disorganized.
Excursion: 50000 COP per person.
Port tax: 12000 COP per person (compulsory).
Snorkel: 25000 COP per person.
We paid almost 100 U$D for 2.
