So... u will find a lot of ways to get there... better. In my opinion is the speed boat. The price is almost the same at the big boats. Playa Blanca is very beautiful and is a tradicional Caribbean beach. The bars will charge u for everything. I fully recommend snorkeling in the marine reserve, very beautiful!

While the promise of white sand beaches and crystal clear blue waters are true what became apparent is that you are one of thousands of people crammed into this paradise all at once. We were onboard a vessel holding approximately 40 passengers and they don't leave until it's full. Then you look around and see these boats in every direction.... More

Our Isla Encanta tour was perfectly and professionally executed. The tour operators did an amazing job keeping everyone organised and happy. The island was luxurious and was really a piece of paradise. Best snorkelling in the area!!

We spent more time in the boat that in the beach, it was pricey and not good at all, there's nothing to do in Rosario Islands, there's no beach just an aquarium, the only thing worthy was the Playa Blanca in Baru Island but we only were there for 1 hour. It would be better if you just get there... More

You see very good species of see animals including some sharks and dolphins. I got interested by some jokes of the presenters and the awesomeness of the dolphins.

We were a little overwhelmed with all the different tours and worried after we read some of bad reviews on Playa Blanca. Fortunately we were able to find via the hotel a nice and honest tourist guide who recommended a trip to the Isla del Sol (he strongly advised strongly against Playa Blanca). It was a fantastic experience away from... More

The Rosario Islands is a small archipelago made up of about 28 islands, if you go to Cartagena then you should take a tour to Rosario Islands, it includes an oceanarium visit in "San Martín de Pajarales" island, where women an childs can interact with the dolphins.

We took this tour to Playa Blanca arranged at the hotel. The transportation was done in an old Citroen van, with A/C not so great. Traffic is a little messy, with lot of garbage on the sides of the road, and during the last part of the trip we had to go through a short unpaved and bumpy way to... More

We just returned from a full day trip to the Rosario Islands. I frankly do not know how to begin describing this experience. We bought our tickets at the tourist pier from what we believed to be a reputable company. The cost was 90,000, which is cheaper than the other tours discussed here. The boat - the niña Marolin had... More

Any where in this archipelago that you might find yourself is a paradise. Very busy - lots of people and not for people who simply want to enjoy the sand and sun. Because you can't miss what you haven't seen before this is a must - but choose which island you want to visit carefully
