Depart from the pier by motorboat to one the beautiful islands of El Rosario, with about 200 meters of white sand beaches and crystal-clear water, located 30 miles south of the Bay of Cartagena - a journey of between one hour and 90 minutes.

These small islands have been protected by the authorities since 1977, when they were declared a National Park and its coral reefs, mangrove habitats and lagoons support more than 1,300 different species in nearly 500 square miles. You can sit on the small beach and rest, enjoy a walk around the island, swim or relax. The hotel has a beachfront bar and snacks can be purchased throughout the day, returning to Cartagena in the late afternoon.
