    What to Expect
    Your day trip to the laid-back, family-oriented beach retreat in the Rosario Islands offers the Caribbean ideal of platinum sands and crystalline waters. After pickup in Cartagena, take a shared speedboat to Isla Grande, the largest of the islands that form Rosario Islands National Park.

    The trip includes a welcome drink and a traditional buffet lunch of fresh fish, coconut rice, fried plantains, and a soft drink. You may also use the beach resort's facilities, kayaks, and other non-motorized water toys, as well as towels and access to the hotel's bathrooms and shower facilities. Snorkeling is also available (rental equipment at your own expense, or bring your own). 

    Soak up some sunshine and swim in the tranquil waters until it's time to head back to Cartagena. The water can be pretty choppy on the way back to the mainland, so bring a plastic bag to keep your belongings dry.

    Probably the best day we had in Colombia. The boat trip was about 45 min and it was fine - if you’ve been on a boat before it’s a normal ride. The beach was wonderful! Nice, quiet, secluded. It was so nice to be away from vendors for a day. You can lounge or play games,

    Can’t recommend this trip enough! Every part of it was absolutely seamless... incredibly well-organized! The speedboat trip to what feels like one’s own private island paradise is very memorable, but the magic really begins once you step on to the island itself... complimentary

    Beautiful island and a pretty easy trip. My girlfriend and I chose this over Blanco because we heard there would be fewer people trying to sell us things (our biggest issue w/ Cartagena). It was a nice day, the food was delicious, the water was beautiful, and I’m a sucker for a

    To start, our tour guide Rodo was THE BEST! He was so accommodating and helped us in everything that we needed and was very helpful when needing to talk to locals for food and what not. My girlfriends and I started the tour off with going to a private beach to spend some time in
