Cartagena: Rosario Islands Private Boat Tour

4. Cartagena: Rosario Islands Private Boat Tour

Your trip to Cartagena won’t be complete without giving yourself a whole day just to chill and relax in the beach. And what better way of doing it than going to a place away from all the noise and chaos of the city. Get on board and travel with us for less than an hour to Rosario National Natural Park, a group of Colombian Caribbean islands of amazingly blue waters, white soft sand and great coral reefs that, due to the intact ecosystem of its archipelago, was declared a protected area. This trip will start early in the morning, after you get picked up from the hotel or the chosen departure spot and then driven to the port to take the boat. You will stop in Playa Grande where you will have the chance to snorkel for a while (masks, safety recommendations and guides will be handed) and see the corals. Then, you will jump to Cholón, a famous party island, where you will stop to take some drinks and pictures. And the final stop will be in Playa Blanca, at Barú island. You will have a private space where you will be able to spend the rest of the day just lying down the beach chairs under the palm trees shade, swimming into the pristine water, or even playing something or reading a book. Time will be all yours. You just bring your best beach attitude and we will do the rest.

Great expérience. The boat was very comfortable with plenty of seating in the sun and in the shade as well as 3 bathrooms below deck. The ride to the first set of islands was about an hour and a half and it’s a very nice ride very relaxing. At the first stop there is swimming and snorkelling with optional life jackets and poop noodles (altho not much to see underwater, just nice to jump in the water!) about and hour ride to next stop where you are served lunch and salad bar which was quite delicious. At the second stop you are anchored for 2 hours close to a nice beach which we swam to and enjoyed some time on the smooth, sandy shores. Quick swim back to the boat with a spirited ride back to the dock where we just lounged, had some cocktails, and enjoyed the view. All in all a nice day!

Great day trip. Well organised, staff were super friendly, the boat itself was really nice and modern & the lunch served was fantastic - way better than expected (had a fruit and salad platter on top of the chicken, seafood or veggie rice). Good vibe with music playing on the boat too. A day well spent.

It was a full excursion, and it was a fantastic way to experience the ways around Cartagena. It was nice having a bar to purchase our own drinks from, and the food was pretty good considering it had to be prepared aboard a catamaran! Highly recommend this experience.

AMAZING!! The staff was so great the islands and boat were beautiful. the food was delicious, and the drinks were bomb.

super fun, beautiful landscape, all around good way to spend a day
