Rosario Islands Day Trip from Cartagena
From $93.34
Escape to the picturesque paradise of the Rosario Islands on a delightful day-trip from Cartagena. Experience the idyllic splendor of the iridescent water and silken sands as you cruise to the alluring archipelago. Plunge into the crystal clear Caribbean waters; recline in the shade of a palm tree on a blissful beach. Treat your taste buds to a traditional lunch and enjoy convenient hotel pickup on this heavenly excursion.
What to Expect
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 and stop at a specific island 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 delicious lunch that will complete this trip. The food will always be fresh and the fish will be caught on same day. Before returning to your boat for the sail back to Cartagena feel free to use the kayaks, hammocks, and even take a dive to do some snorkeling (optional at own expense).

Watch the sun sink into the shimmering sea before finishing your tour with magical memories.

The experience was goid

..but the beach was basically non existent. You could not take a walk down the beach. The boat ride there was hilariously dangerous, the food on the island wad good, and the massage wad good.

As advertised

Awesome. Like a private resort for a day, just your boat and there was 1 other but it never felt crowded. I feel I can leave stuff and not worry about it. A lot of the people involved live there or are from there so...More

Worth the boat ride!

I did read quite some negative reviews of the trip. I personally don't think it was a bad trip. In fact, it was totally worth it. The waters are definitely emerald blue. The pool side is nice too. And I liked the food too (esp...More

Not worth your time or money.. don’t do it

The tour is more catered to locals. Our tour guide spoke Spanish 98% of the time. The boat broke down 5 mins within the trip which ate up an hour of our time. The welcome cocktail advertised was coffee and fruit. 94 dollars to take...More

Most beautiful beach

I had the best day there. The guide was so knowledgeable. The island itself was amazing. The locals really took care of us. I went scuba diving for the first time. And the instructor really put me at ease. I would definitely go back.More
