Full description
Depart Cartagena and discover the archipelago of the Rosario islands of Colombia to experience one of the most sought-after destinations in the Caribbean. Board a speedboat with a small group and get an excellent view of Tierra Bomba as you leave Cartagena behind. As the city starts getting smaller in the distance, islands of all shapes will emerge from the crystal-clear water.

Beneath the water and dozens of islands of all sizes lie beautiful coral reefs and the many shipwrecks caused by the area's countless sea battles. Arrive at an eco hotel on a private island and discover its stunning beach and swimming pool, hammocks to rest and kiosk, bar and small restaurant.

Decide whether you want to spend the day chilling out or doing some of the activities on offer at the hotel. If you are feeling energetic, go on hikes around the island or take part in kayak or snorkeling adventures. Those feeling a little more laid-back can get a body massage or go to the aquarium to see some of the best examples of the region's marine biodiversity (own expense).

Enjoy a tasty lunch of fresh fish and the best ingredients of the region, prepared at the beach. Enjoy some free time to relax and catch the rays of the Caribbean sun before your return journey to Cartagena. Arrive at the harbor and be transferred back to the port.
