What to expect

Enjoy a day tour to the archipelago of the Rosario Islands of Colombia, probably one of the most sought-after destinations in the Caribbean.

After your hotel pick-up, you'll board a speedboat with a small group of people that will take you to the area of the archipelago. On the route, you’ll have an excellent view of Tierra Bomba, a beautiful island right outside of the city.

The boat will reach Isla del Sol, a private island with a beach and crystal clear waters, swimming pool, hammock kiosk, bar, and a small restaurant. Here, you can decide whether you would like to spend the day, at the island chilling out or doing some of the extra activities (at your own expense) such as hiking, kayaking, snorkeling, body-massage or embark on a trip to the wonderful open-water aquarium, that displays and hosts the best examples of marine biodiversity in the region (ticket not included).

On the island, you'll be served a tasty lunch prepared with fresh fish and the best ingredients of the region. After lunch, you'll have some time to relax at the beach before returning to Cartagena.
