I had a wonderful time on this trip. It was memorable and beautiful. My tour guide, Jorge made it worth the money. He was a great guide and also answered all of my questions about the culture.
The trip was so much fun! If you love beautiful islands, aqua water, great guides, snorkeling and local cuisine...this trip is for you! Was nervous after reading the reviews from a few people! However, this trip did not disappoint in any way!!
informative and helpful staff, right next to beach, clean room, nice balcony view and idk what else to write im just filling in space lol
This tour was pretty great. Our guide Ozmel I hope I am spelling this right was amazing and so helpful and funny. He gave us enough details about the islands and also gave us some snack as well as the lunch that was provided. It was a fun day that began at 7.30am and ended at about 4pm. Cholon was a lot of fun and the drinks were so yum! We also had a great time at Playa Blanca and Playa Azul. We all didn't want to snorkel but we were able to sit on the boat and listen to music while others snorkeled. It was a great time! Worth the price.
This tour was very scenic. We got picked up at our hotel in Cartagena and was taken to the beach to get picked up. Our boat broke down half way getting to the first island. We had to go back and split the group in 2 different boats. This was a quick turn around and we were on our way quickly to the islands. The first island we went to, we went snorkeling, 2nd island we went to was Cholon and it was awesome which had a beach bar , tables and chairs IN the middle of beach water. We got serviced and ordered piña coladas . Wish we could of stayed there longer. Then we went to Baru where we sun bathed and enjoyed shrimp cocktails. Playa Blanca we had a nice lunch and view. We stayed there for an hour. Jorge is a good tour guide and handled everything very well. One thing that was an issue that isnt the tour guides fault was the attitude of our driver. My husband and i understand and speak spanish and english. We almost got dropped off where our hotel was and the driver didnt want to drop us off first. He didnt do the right turn. He didnt want to park so our tour guide and driver were arguing on the drop off schedule and we got dropped off last. Hopefully yall will get a better drive next time. It was very well worth the money and i highly recommend it . Everything was included. We're a couple in our late 20s
This was the best tour I have the pleasure of being on! Jorge was the absolute best, he kept it entertaining and educational at the same time. He educated us about the histories of the islands and entertained us upon arrival. They company picked us up and dropped us off by to our hotel, so that was super convenient. The lunch on the beach was amazing, if I had to tour again I would not hesitate to ask for Jorge.
I had a really great time during the tour. the whole team was very attentive about getting us food, drinks, and anything we needed. For our tour guides we had Jorge and Arturo. They both were fantastic. The beaches were incredibly beautiful! The food was incredible. They adjusted their menu to a vegetarian meal really well. It was super delicious!
We did not know, but there is a fancier way to get to these islands. There are boats that leave from the port. Leaving from the port gives you two more hours in the hotel in the morning. We were picked up really early in the morning by the bus. Seems like the boats are a direct shot and less adventurous than the bus.
Having said that, we had a fantastic time! The snorkeling was definitely an experience. We swam out pretty far to a ship wreck, the scenery was unbelievable, and we had great customer service. I would sign up again for this tour.
This was overall a good trip. Our guide was involved with the group, attentive,, and able to inform us of customs and behaviors of which we might not be aware.
The description on the website was fairly accurate, so there weren't any unexpected surprises. This trip is for adventurous people who are not afraid to get wet soaked and sandy.
The beaches are lovely but crowded and there are lots of people trying to sell stuff. Unlike in other countries, I found that if you are polite and say no, they will not persist. If you are interested in their wares or services, you must ask the price first and do a bit of bargaining.
It was obvious that the company and our guide are trying to make this trip as pleasant as possible. Our guide was knowledgeable about the history of the islands. We were given the choice of snorkeling or hanging out on the beach of the first island. The next island, Cholon was very crowded and loud it's the party island. Our guide told us we could join in the party or when we were tired of it we could leave as a group . We left a bit early and the next island had a nicer beach and there was a snack of fresh octopus and clams.
We returned to Playa Blanca and had a nice lunch of fried whole fish, chicken filets or a vegetarian option. The food was good but the service was painfully slow. They knew we were coming and what we had ordered. Unfortunately, they did not have enough people to serve 23 people in a timely manner. The food came out intermittently and the beverages didn't arrive until after most people had finished and left for the beach. Our guide was even trying to help serve.
Aside from the food service which is completely fixable, I would recommend this trip and go again myself
Great tour! Our guide was Jesus and he did an excellent job of explaining everything in English. Would highly recommend for anyone who wants to see the different islands and enjoy some sun.
Great tour to a beautiful part of Colombia. Fantastic tour guides. The only suggestion is perhaps having better snorkeling equipment.
One of the best days in Colombia! A Great way to explore the sourcing coast! Very friendly and helpful guides and driver.
We would definitely recommend this trip to get away from Cartagena and enjoy the because blue water of the island. There were a total of four stops. It was good to have the option to skip the snorkeling and enjoy the beach ppl on our tour said the snorkeling was great, we just didn't feel like it. We could have done without the Cholon stop, as it was our least favorite compared to the others, mostly because the others were really beautiful beaches. Our guide Arturo was attentive and fun. It's a full day of sunshine so don't forget to bring sunscreen, towels, and cash.
It was lots of fun, snorkeling right from the boat was good we liked our guide Jesus. This trip goes to several beaches, and most are not the standard places that most Rosario trips take you to.
George was our guide for the trip to Rosario Island and we enjoyed the trip. The day trip takes you to different islands which are very beautiful to snorkel, swim and for local food. George is a lot of fun and informative guide... The touring company is very professional and picked and dropped us from/to our hotel at the exact time.. I would highly recommend this tour and go with George as your guide.
LOVE LOVE LOVED this tour. It made me angry that I only got to spend a day trip! Every beach was great and the water was so warm! It was a little confusing at first what we were doing leaving our stuff at one beach and doing a bit of island hopping in between but it was so worth it! Would stay longer next time!
I would definitely recommend taking this tour - beautiful islands and a different perspective on Cartagena.
1. Good guides
2. Includes snorkeling off of Rosario Islands even though the description says it is extra it is not
3. The beaches really are beautiful and relaxing lots of people trying to selling stuff to you constantly though...
1. We didn't want to snorkel and thought is was extra given the description online, so we got dumped on a private island and had to wait until everyone was done snorkeling. We felt like I was in time out.
Not bad at all. Read some reviews online of similar trips not going so well so was a bit apprehensive at first but glad I chose this one. The guides were helpful and informative. Just wish we spent a bit more time in the second beach as the first one was a bit bland..
