Full description
Blue water, white sand, and an awesome coral is the perfect mix for a sunny day! 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. This day will start with pick up you at your hotel between 6 - 6:40 AM, in a minivan or a bus. Your first stop will be at Isla Grande where you will do snorkel for about 45 minutes (mask, oxygen tubes and recommendations will be given prior to experience) and receive a bottle of water after the activity. Then, continue to Cholon to enjoy a mini party in the water with music, drinks, and people from other boats. After some fun, its time to relax as you reach a private island where beach chairs and umbrellas await. Spend time in the sun and have a seafood cocktail in one of the most beautiful places you will visit. The last stop will be 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.

This was the best trip we booked while in Cartagena. It exceeded our expectations. David was the most amazing host and guide throughout the process. The boat is a smaller speedboat, so if you are looking for larger, this would not be it. BUT, the trip is worth it and they care about you throughout the ENTIRE process.

Our guide, I think his name was David, was excellent! Very friendly and positive! We had a great time in the tour. And pay for your drinks on the island stops one at a time. They seem to like to add on service fees, etc that can substantially increase your bill. This was the only complaint and I don’t fault the tour company for it.

This tour was good , considering that covid affected all over the world. The only thing is LUNCH was so poor and bad , so even after the trip I got upsate stomach. I did taste fresh at all and it was too little portion. They for sure can improve this tour changing poor lunch for something better.
