Cartagena's Island Day

Options to enjoy an island day off of Cartagena

Vanessa, 

I would like to present to you some options I think would be good for you and your family to enjoy a day at the islands off of the coast of Cartagena. Please take a look and let mw know what you think:

Resort in Terra Bomba - $45 per person

  • Included:

    • Transportation from Cartagena on boat (Multiple options for departure - return)

    • Use of Facilities (Day beds, hammocks, pool, beach)

    • Lunch

  • This one is located in Tierra Bomba, which is right across the bay. In other words: It is a short ride away, water is blue but not as clear as in the rosario islands, ​ you can see the city from there. 

  • You will have options for some additional activities like jet skis. 

Resort in Islas del Rosario - $68 per person

  • Included:

    • Transportation from Cartagena on boat (8:30 AM check-in at pier)

    • Use of Facilities (Reserved Covered Day beds, beach, towels)

    • Lunch and welcome drink

  • This one is located in one of the Rosario Islands. About 45 min ride on boat, which means more into the Caribbean, bluer and more crystal water.  

  • You will have more options for additional activities like jet skis, snorkeling, kayaks, and also the chance to go to the small sea aquarium which some people find interesting.  

  • Like this one can find others a bit more exclusive starting at about $20 more. 

Private Car to Playa Blanca - $165 

  • Included:

    • Private Transportation to and from Playa Blanca en Baru.

    • You would be responsible for your own lunch and drinks, towels, etc. 

  • The largest and perhaps most beautiful beach near Cartagena is PLaya Blanca, located in Baru Island. This is the only beach you can drive to. Therefore it is also the most crowded, but it is long enough that if you walk away from the crowds you can find quieter places.

  • Playa Blanca is a long strand of beach, full of small restaurants and beach stands. Once there you can find the one you like, get situated and enjoy a day at the beach.  These places will offer you lunch, drinks, etc.

  • Private transportation is definitely the best way to travel here, as you can leave when ever you want. Also pick the place you want, without feeling obligated to stay anywhere.

  • If you choose this option I will share some tips and guidance to make this day enjoyable.

  • You will have some options for water sports.
