The archipelago of the Rosario islands of Colombia is probably one of the most sought after destinations in the Caribbean. Besides the beautiful reefs, there are also many shipwrecks of the countless sea battles that were fought in this territory.
What to Expect
The archipelago of the Rosario islands of Colombia is probably one of the most sought after destinations in the Caribbean. This system composed of dozens of islands of all sizes, conceals in the background a wonderful aqua sea coral reef. Besides the beautiful reefs, there are also many shipwrecks of the countless sea battles fought in this territory. These islands really are a must-see.
After being picked-up at your hotel, you'll be taken to the port to board a speedboat with a small group, and head to the area of the archipelago. Enroute you’ll have an excellent view of Tierra Bomba, a beautiful island right outside of Cartagena. The city will start becoming smaller in the distance, and hidden further in the sea you'll spot islands of all shapes and sizes surrounded by crystal clear water.
The boat will then reach your eco-hotel on a private island with beach, crystal clear waters, swimming pool, hammock, kiosk, bar and a small restaurant. At this point, you can decide whether you would like to spend the day on the island chilling out and doing some of the activities on offer (hiking, kayaking, snorkeling, body-massage), or embark on a trip to the aquarium. This is a wonderful open-water display, which hosts the best examples of marine biodiversity in the region (ticket not included). Afterwards you'll be back on the island in time for a tasty lunch prepared with fresh fish and the best ingredients of the region. Afterwards, you'll have some time to relax at the beach before returning to Cartagena. Upon your arrival at the harbor, you'll be taken back to the port.
