Day Trip to Isla Majagua
Day Trip to Isla Majagua, Colombia
Time to take to the waters of the Caribbean for a day trip out to Hotel San Pedro de Majagua located on one of the islands of the Isla Rosario chain.
Around 45 miles from the coastal city of Cartagena lie the Rosario Islands (Islas del Rosario), an archipelago formed by coral reefs with small white sand beaches, and clear Caribbean waters that invite snorkelers and divers to appreciate the diverse marine life. The 40 or so small islands have had protected status as a National Park in Colombia since 1977, with reportedly 1300 species found here.
Although there are just a few small beaches here, they offer visitors a lovely relaxing spot after time exploring the rest of the country- perfect for some r&r, swimming, snorkeling and sun bathing, and not a lot else!
The trips start from your hotel where you will be picked up and transferred to the port. The boats usually departs about 09.00 in the morning. You will head out from the port into open water for the 45 minute ride to the island. Upon arrival you will disembark and have a day to explore the island, or just sit and relax. The hotel has good facilities and included in the day trip is a sea food lunch. You can sit on the small beach and relax for day or take to some of the short trails that cross the island. Also available for rent is snorkeling equipment in order to view some of the marine life below the waves. The hotel has a beach front bar and snacks can be purchased throughout the day. At around 16.00 you will board the boat back to Cartagena.
