Rosario Island, Colombia, is part of an archipelago made up of twenty-eight different islands off the northern coast of Colombia. Because of its coral formations, the park has been made into a protected National Park area. Of the islands, the largest is Isla Grande, and this is where you will find all of the Rosario Island, Colombia hostels and other budget accommodations.

To get here you need to take a boat from the terminal in Cartegena, which can be found near the Torre. There are two options -- you can opt for a day trip, which may not be the best way to go about it, given how little you do over the space of the day; or you can opt to stay in a Rosario Island, Colombia hostel on the island. Barter your price at the docks as they have different costs to get to and from with different companies.

Once there you need to get your haggle on; the locals will rip you blind for activities if they can smell money. They will offer you bicycle tours around the island, which you don't need because you can walk all of the three kilometres from one side to the other in forty minutes. They will try and tell you stupid prices for forty-five minutes of snorkeling off the coast and seeing the sunken plane. Ask your Rosario Island, Colombia hostel staff for help in organising things and tell them what you're willing to pay.

There are some nice, albeit small beaches to visit during the day. You can try and haggle to get over to the aquariums on one of the other islands. Also they have a night trip to snorkel with the bioluminescent plankton, which is a must-do and a highlight of any trip here, as it is incredible. There is one dive centre off the island if you want to do some diving here too.

Of all the trips to amazing islands in the world, this one can be a little underwhelming and cost a whole lot of money. If you have time and cash to throw around, it is a nice break.
