The boat was too small The food was not great.didnot Worth the money. same ticket for $98us at ARRIV
This was a really great experience. Everyone was very knowledgeable and helped us throughout the entire trip. The water was beautiful. The boat ride was extremely memorable. We wanted to do this tour again the next day. I would recommend this tour to everyone who wants to see the islands.
We had a great tour guide who spoke both English and Spanish. The boat ride out to Rosario can get a bit choppy so be sure to sit towards the back of the boat. The few islands we stopped on were small and just meant for observing the scenery and wading the in water. Don't expect there to be shopping, restaurants, etc. But it's a great look at how the locals live. The water was crystal blue, water, and we had a great time!
The tour was well managed and the guide Jorge was very helpful. Bring cash if you plan on drinking on the beach - be mindful there will be people trying to sell you stuff at every turn.
Great day sailing and island hopping with Osman and the crew. Went to Isla Rosales and Augazul loved it. The weather was crazy and made it more fun.
Really fun introduction to the Rosario Islands! Snorkeling was great and the tour guide Jorge was super friendly and funny! Would definitely recommend to anyone in Cartagena for a few days!
This tour was amazing!!! The beaches were absolutely stunning and the experience was perfect. The tour guides were great, especially Jorge- he was very patient, knowledgeable, and funny. Oh and the food was awesome too, great coconut rice. It was definitely one of the highlights of my trip!
This tour was through backpackers CTG which I highly recommend. We first drove to Isla Baru and took a boat out into the ocean to snorkel. It was an unforgettable experience. After we went to Cholon and the water was very clear and beautiful, we then went to Agua Playa Agua Azul. Finally we went to Playa Blanca. For the price, it was a very good value. I bought more expensive tours that were not as great as this one.
Unfortunately not worth the money.
No good snorkelling equipment, no flippers, water too shallow.
Vendors on the certain spots seem to have connection with the tour guide.
Were encouraged to buy alcohol even before snorkelling.
Included fruit salad was plate for everyone (12 people) with five forks.
Tour appears aimed at the backpacker crowd and consists of a single snorkelling session and three different beaches, the first of which Cholon is a waste of time. Be prepared to get drenched on the boat between the islands!
It was a fantastic tour led by Jorge, a guide who was knowledgeable, funny and spoke in Spanish/English.
Beaches were beautiful and a chance to see many islands in one day! The snorkeling was pretty cool, my daughter enjoyed it very much!
Overall a fun, relaxing day
Great way to see the islands! Our tour guide Jorge was fantastic and our small group enjoyed beautiful scenery/commentary from the boat ride, relaxing time on the beach, snorkelling and a tasty lunch. Thanks to the crew and especially Jorge for the fun day we had!
The place is beautiful and the crew very nice specially Jesús but the food at Playa Blanca was awful.
