Full description

Experience clear blue waters, white sand, and awesome corals on the perfect sunny day trip! Corales del Rosario National Park is the name of a group of islands on the coast of Colombia, located just an hour away by speed boat from Cartagena or 20 mins from Barú. This paradise is the favorite destination in Cartagena and it offers a natural environment to have fun and relax. Start the day with a morning pickup from your hotel. Continue to a relaxing private island where beach chairs and umbrellas await you. Spend time in the sun and have a seafood cocktail or lemonade in one of the most beautiful places you will visit. Afterward, continue to Cholon to enjoy a mini party in the water with music, drinks, and people from other boats. Finally, stop at Playa Blanca in Barú Island, where there will be a more private space waiting for you away from the main concentration of boats and vendors. Here, eat a typical island lunch and spend the rest of the day on the beach, relaxing and swimming.

The rosario Islands are spectacular. My advice is to skip the snorkeling and relax on Isla grande while your fellow travelers snorkel, the beach near the snorkeling is secluded to the point of being almost private. I guarantee you won't be disappointed. the 2nd stop is Coco Terra at the far end of Isla Grande it is beautiful and relaxing, the beach is slightly more crowded but easy to traverse and the swimming is wonderful. The 3rd stop is Cholon.... Honestly it felt like a Covid19 cesspool, filled with 100's of Gringo duche bags. Finally, Playa Blanca. Relaxing and beautiful, away from the crowd.

We had an amazing time. If I could change anything it would be the should offer a trip to Cholon all by itself. Our host David was exceptional. He was so courteous and thoughtful. It was a long but amazing day. So much food!! I would book this trip again on my next visit.

My family and I had an amazing experience, this tour definitely felt different for the others. Our guide David Santiago was excellent, he was very informative, charismatic and friendly all the qualities a guide needs, he even warned us about prices and help us with our jetski rental at the beach. Worth every penny.
