Overall rating

This was one of the best things I did during my stay in Cartagena. The staff were all very friendly, and they definitely kept the rum with lemonades coming! Very relaxing sail to the end of the peninsula, where you watch the sunset, and sail back to the pier, looking at Cartagena's buildings lit up. Highly recommend, especially if you drink rum.

If you’re looking for the party, this isn’t the one. If you’re looking for a short boat ride to a quiet island with a great tour of a cool fort and a quiet beach to hang out on, this is the one. Very few vendors. Incredibly nice people. Very good value

Paola was very kind to us and took very good care of us. The facilities on the island are consistent with the photos

The place is beautiful, the food is delicious and the military fort is impressive

Super nice experience! Very romantic..Highly recommended
