I am planning a trip for the end of August 2013 and am wondering where to stay near Cartagena to enjoy the beach and to go scuba diving. Is it better to stay in Cartagena and take speedboats out to Rosario Islands? Any recommendations where to stay in Rosario or one of the other islands off Cartagena? Am hoping for something in the $100-$125 USD/night.
Any help at this last minute hour would be very much appreciated!
