    Delight in the sounds of Caribbean rhythms and rippling waves as this stylish catamaran slips away to the idyllic setting of the Rosario Islands national park.

    The friendly crew will welcome you aboard with a refreshing cocktail and be on hand to ensure you have an unforgettable day.

    Leaving Cartagena’s spectacular city skyline behind you, you’ll sail toward the crystalline waters of Colombia's beautiful Caribbean archipelago, the Rosario Islands.

    TIC arranged 3 outings for our family - a trip to the Aviario, a city tour, and a day trip to the Islas Rosario. Maria in the TIC Cartagena offices was extremely helpful in making plans and responsive when we needed to make a few changes.

    8 Of us rented the 28 ft boat with the bilingual guide JP. It was AWESOME! We went to 3 different spots to snorkel including in front of Pablo Escobar's mansion ruins where a plane was sitting ghostly in the sea... JP was the best!
