Are you looking for a quiet island where you can enjoy a day on the beach? This full day trip to Rosario Islands will allow to relax in a serene location in the middle of the Caribbean sea, where you will be surrounded by crystal clear waters and soft, white sand.
Rosario Islands National Park, known for its amazing coral reefs, has a large variety of places to visit such as resorts, public and private beaches, some which are more crowded than others. We have chosen Gente de Mar one of the best spots on Isla Grande with the most beautiful beaches in the entire archipelago. It is a lovely place surrounded by turquoise waters, awsome coral reefs and white sandy beaches where you can enjoy an unforgettable experience of relaxation and fun. That's what we came for!
This tour to Rosario Islands leaves from the Bodeguita tourist dock. We will take a 45 minute trip by speed boat to Gente de Mar in Isla Grande, where a local host will be waiting for us with a welcome drink. During this day of complete rest and relaxation we can swim in the warm, crystal clear water before enjoying a delicious lunch, take a boat trip through the green, tropical mangroves, or simply relax on the beaches of this little piece of paradise. Additionally, you can also try kayaking, stand up paddle, snorkeling, or diving through the coral reefs, seeing shoal coral fishes along the way.
