It is ok, an hour ride from Cartagena on a rather comfortable boat, but if the sea is rough get ready for some roller coasting. The sea was not clear and the beach is quite small. It is an ok day trip, but I expected more of a Caribean sea. The people is nice, they try to sell you everything,... More

Islas del Rosarios are a few little island outside of Cartagena, they are very popular because the water had different colors, and you can do many snorkel activities and experience very nice corals and marine life. They tour you around boats and you can choose which one you want to go depending on what you are planing on doing. After... More

We just went on this Tour of the Rosario Islands April 28, 2017 from the Disney Wonder which we booked from the ship's Port Adventures. It was such a fun boat ride on a new fast boat with leather bucket seats with a history and tour enroute to Rosario Island. We arrived, 40 of us and had the whole island... More

We booked a tour directly through OPI Tours, instead of using the travel desk at our hotel. What a mistake that was. Here's why: 1) They didn't offer us a discount, but our hotel did. 2) They tried to charge a 4% credit card fee, but when I strongly objected, they conceded. Our hotel didn't assess a cc surcharge on... More

We had our trip to Isla Del Encanta arranged by our hostel, El Viajero Cartagena. We paid 161.000 COP per person. Included was 1 hour trip by speed boat and lunch. Drinks were not included - these are expensive. Compared to a trip to Playa Blanca by bus at 50.000 COP per person the trip to Encanta was actually better... More

Note: overall rating is of the actual tour (Isla del Rosario en lancha rapida plan full), if rating Opitours only it would be a 1. You can get the same tour (or better) for the same locations for the same price (or cheaper) with other tour companies and hopefully better service. The tour was ok, the tour company we choose...

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
