Cartagena de Indias, What a Trip (Part 2)

Visiting the Islands

Islas del Rosario, is a group of beautiful coral reef islands, great for aquatic activities or to simply relax and enjoy nature.

First Stop Hotel Pedro Majagua So beautiful and peaceful, my sister and I took a walk into the heart of the island,  and made it all the way into the islands local town, not much of a town to be honest. But it was fun to explore!


It is a very small island, there are a couple of hostels, we crossed many backpacker even though September is not really consider high season. If you like nature this is the place to go. The island also offers “pasadia”, you can visit for the day, swim, eat and enjoy the island, they have boat rides that depart from Cartagena and other locations, visit their site for more information.



Hotel Pedro Majagua


This was our room, very eco-chic, all rooms have ac, so you don’t have to worry about the heat 😉

Our second stop, Isla del Encanto

Hotel Isla del Encanto



The rooms are amazing, we were on the second level, all in wood, again really eco-chic with fantastic views to the sea. This is another place to relax, the food was very good, mostly local cuisine, the cocktails were fantastic and the service was also great.


This location also offers, day visits, so you can enjoy the installations, activities and amenities for one full day, the access is also by boat, 1 hour ride from Cartagena to Isla del Encanto.

Remember to take cash with you, there are no ATM’s on the islands!


I have to mention that, this was the first time I was travelling with my sister, since I got married, and moved to Canada, all I can say is that it was a wonderful experience to spend time with both her an my mom, only the three of us!


I hope you enjoy this post, let me know in the comments if you have been or plan to travel to Colombia.
