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.

Santiago was THE MAN! What a wonderful tour guide. He made sure all of our needs were met throughout the entire day and had the best sense of humor that kept the group energy going all trip. He was the most fabulous tour guide I have ever had on an excursion. Great positivity, communication with the group, and guidance to all the locations we visited. I would recommend anyone to do the Rosario Islands tour with him as their guide. He made the trip much more enjoyable for the entire group and a great memory for all of us.

Very interesting tour, if it lasted an hour longer it would be ideal ... doing everything in a hurry to return at 15 doesn't make much sense! But the beauty of the islands is worth everything else ... the coral reef is a bit small but it is always a pleasure to swim in it ...
