The Rosario and San Bernardo National Natural Park is located in the Caribbean Sea, some 45km to the southeast of the bay of Cartagena. This National Natural Park protects one of the most important coral reefs bordering the Colombian Caribbean coastline, covering 120,000 hectares, and comprises of an underwater shelf and coral reefs to the west of the Baru peninsula.
The Baru is approximately 40 minutes from the Bay of Cartagena by boat or two to three hours by land. Within its 7000 hectares are the beautiful towns of Ararca, and Santa Ana, and white sandy beaches such as Playa Blanca, Playita de Cholón, Playa de los Muertos, and Playa Bobo, making it the perfect place to have a beach holiday in Latin America. All of these are blessed with clear turquoise waters and surrounded by multicolored mangroves and dreamlike landscapes where the locals serve up and offer you delicious platters of lobster and shellfish while welcoming you to their home.
Today, these islands are more popular for those that want a beach stay at the end of their trip while staying in some of Colombia’s leading 5* hotels surrounded by nature.
