Islas del Rosario

Islas del Rosario

Islas del Rosario (or the English version – the Rosario Islands) is renowned as the world’s third largest barrier reef and a truly magical place to visit.    As part of Colombia’s National Park system, protected since 1970 by the government, there’s plenty to see at this tropical paradise.

If you’re thinking of booking one of those “day trips” to see this spectacular paradise, think again. Most of those local tour companies concentrate on “touristy” spots, eating at that one trendy restaurant, perhaps a quick visit to the local aquarium, but this is just not the way to go.  Ditch the tourists and take your own adventure aboard a private boat.
Imagine yourself climbing aboard your very own chartered yacht and taking a relaxing cruise out to the islands. Whisk through the crystal clear Caribbean waters while reclining on deck with a cocktail and enjoying some local cuisine with your friends. This is truly the way to see the Islas del Rosario, not crammed on a boat with a bunch of tourists.

Book your Boat


Go Outside Cartagena

While many of the locals and tourists can be found packed on the beaches of Bocagrande, you’ll be setting sail for your island getaway instead. There are 27 different island contained in this beautiful archipelago, and although you might not be able to see them all, you’ll still see plenty in this grand paradise adventure.

You’ll see and experience the many pearl white sandy beaches and crystalline turquoise waters these tropical islands are famous for.

Take a Dive and Dip

Whether you’re a certified diver with triple digits of underwater time beneath your belt or a scuba rookie (and let’s not discount everyone in between), you’ll definitely want to bring a mask and pair of fins to this adventure. Along with a myriad of beautiful varieties and species of tropical fish, you’ll likely see some seahorses, turtles and in some cases, a school of dolphins might be playing in the nearby Caribbean waters. The coral reefs that make up these islands are also spectacular.

If you don’t enjoy diving or snorkeling, there’s always swimming and sunbathing. Much of the unique wildlife native to this area can still be enjoyed, especially in the shallow waters that surround the islands and beaches. So if you’re not wearing a mask, you’ll still be able to check out the flora and fauna both in and out of the waters.
