When Do You Want To Go?

Carribean clear waters and coral seas just a 1 hour boat ride away from Cartagena

The Rosario Islands are a group of 40 islands off the coast of Cartagena. Due to its wonderfully intact ecosystem, the archipelago was declared a national park in 1977 and its crystal-clear waters are a constant reminder that Colombia has a Carribean coast and a beautiful one at that. Made up of a multitude of little islands, it has lovely white sand beaches and magnificent coral. Fans of marine life claim that this is one of the best places to snorkel and scuba dive on the Colombian coast.

Area

The islands extend west from the Island of Baru, the reefs of the archipelagos of Nuestra Señora del Rosario and San Bernardo and the underwater platform in between, as well as the Tesoro, Rosario, Mucura, and Maravilha islands. The archipelagos of the Rosario Islands and San Bernardo are located one and two hours by boat respectively from the piers by the old town in Cartagena.

Best time to go

The islands can be busy because of their proximity to the mainland, but they are a year-round destination. December to March is the summer season.

Latin Routes tip:

Be sure to try a “coco loco” – a delicious alcoholic drink served inside a coconut.
