  • This Is What We Love

    • Kicking back with a mojito and soaking up the sun
    • Taking a spontaneous detour to yet another jaw-droopingly beautiful bay sure makes up for the lack of vitamin D back at home
    • Being the captain of your own ship. The Rosario Islands really feel like your oyster when you pick where to anchor and swim
    • Creating your own unique island itinerary
    • Snorkel on a secluded beach in the morning and feast on a lobster lunch before heading out to the party bay of Cholon. Sound good?
  • What's Included

    • Hotel pick up with concierge to introduce you to your boat crew
    • A superior yacht or speedboat to explore the Rosario Islands
    • A unique island treat that you get to plan from start to finish
    • Freedom to choose your bay, soundtrack and eating options
    • Fully trained skipper and his first mate
    • Cooler filled with ice
    • Fuel, taxes and insurance
    • The first round of drinks on us (24 beers 24 bottles of water)
  • Who Will Enjoy It

    What's not to love about crystalline waters and bewitching beaches? Not a lot. Literally everyone willing to push the boat out, from families and parties to couples will fall hook, line and sinker for this luxury island expedition.

    Un grupo de amigos y yo pudimos conocer de forma diferente y exclusiva las islas alrededor de Cartagena; en nuestro bote privado, con música y buena onda, junto con una deliciosa langosta fresca de almuerzo. El guía que nos acompañó fue muy amable y estuvo constantemente pendiente de que la pasáramos bien, además nos indicó los mejores lugares para hacer snorkel, fue genial, los colores, los peces, el sol, el clima. Volvería sin duda a las hermosas Islas del Rosario, Barú, Cholón; son de ensueño, con sus hermosas aguas cristalinas y sus blancas arenas. Recomiendo muchísimo ésta experiencia con This is Cartagena, son los mejores en esto. ¡Un día inolvidable!

    El viaje de un día a las islas era divertida, informativa, bien organizada y nos dio una gran perspectiva de Cartagena desde el agua. Rainbow y su personal muy bien la zona y tienen contactos clave que utilizan para el beneficio de sus clientes. Nuestro viaje a Cartagena era tan enriquecido por la experiencia, que sólo nos hubiera gustado haber podido quedarse unos días más para aprovechar otros tours.

    Colombia is a great place to visit, but having a tour guide like Rodolfo made our experience 10 times better. He is extremely knowledgeable as well as fluent in a English and Spanish which is extremely rare in Colombia.
