Know More about this tour

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.

  • We had an OK time... First it was confusing if they would or would not pick us up at the hotel As it took several days to hear, yes we were confirmed, then we could not reconfirm as stated on the voucher that we needed to do-we got the confirmation the day before the trip Even our hotel tried to call them--no answer. We were getting ready to get a taxi when they did show up to pick us up! Our driver was extremely nice.
    Check in at pier went very well, as did the ride out to the Island.
    The island is small with really only one very small beach and the water is very shallow and rocky. Lots of people on the beach--more than our one boat, not sure where they came from? Another tour? Plus there is smoking allowed which because the chairs are so close together, I had to get up and move away to avoid second hand smoke. We did the snorkling which was fun--yes coral is dying, between pollution and climate change and most likely too many people touching it. But it was fun. Lunch was good, no fruit, but fish was very fresh and they did do a fillet for my daughter who will not eat a fish if there are bones or eyes The fruit drink had no taste and I would have done without it. Trip Advisor said included were the non motorized things such as paddle boats and kayaks, but we had to pay for the paddleboat there were no kayaks that I saw!
    There are only 6 hammocks and people claimed them very fast! There are so many trees around it would be very easy to add hammocks all over the island.
    Afterwards I wanted to rinse off the salt water before the boat ride back. The outside showers were not working and for the women there was only one shower!
    I am glad I went because otherwise I would have wondered what I missed, but now that I went I have no desire to return. Maybe the other tour operators are better, I don't have a comparison, but I wouldn't spend money to do this again!

  • I do recommend this trip because of the friendly service, fun stops, great lunch, and the importance of having a scheduled optoin to the islands, however....the communication process was frustrating for all groups on our tour days were confused addresses and pick ups not validated. Also, during the sales process they were trying to get you to go on a different day and wouldn't guarentee that your trip would actually happen in the case they didn't have enough people.

  • I wrote a lengthy review in response to an email from Viator, but to summarize, this tour is not worth the cost.

  • possibly the best part of my trip!
    Beautiful place, great lunch.

  • Beautiful time on the island. It was really relaxing to take a day away from the city. They have everything you could possibly need on the island.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Everything was perfect! Highly recommended.

  • We decided not to take this trip as we heard bad reviews of Rosario islands . We decided to spend more time in beautiful Cartagena instead. We lost the money on this trip.

  • First of all, Viator confirmed the trip with me, but the tour company contacted me and said they did not have availability for the day I wanted to go and booked me for the next day. It would have been nice to have more information as to what island was going to be visited. The check in process at the dock was chaotic and they never gave me the proper change for the taxes charged. Once on the island it was relaxing and the lunch was decent.

  • great day trip to a nice, basic island resort with a lovely beach the lunch provided was delicious!
