And there are no better beaches in Cartagena than those found on the nearby Rosario Islands. Just a short boat ride from the marina, the Rosario Islands offer a wide variety of activities for couples looking for a little excitement. Snorkel or scuba on some of the most pristine waters in the Caribbean. Find your own private island for a day. Take a romantic sunset sail and watch as the stars come out to light up your night. Or, perhaps, you would just like to stick your feet in the sand with a fruity drink in your hand. All of this (and more) can be had with a day trip to the Rosario Islands.
