we are located at the Rosario Islands, expecific in Isla Grande, 1 hour and 20 minutes in boat fromthe city of Cartagena.

how to get here:

it is 1hour and 20 Minutes boat ride. Once in the city of Cartagena, it is necessary to take a boat to Isla Grande in the Rosario Islands.

The output port of the boats to the Rosario islands is from the Muelle De La Bodeguita , located on the Avenue Blas de Lezo , 200 meters from the Clock Tower, the main gateway to the walled city.

This transport operates from 8:30 am until 9:30 am and costs between 15 USD to 25 USD plus the tourist taxes which are $ 13,500 COP (about 7 USD) Once you arrive at La Bodeguita explain that you want to go to Hostales Paraiso Secreto and find out which boat can take you there. if the boat leave you in Lizamar, is very close by and only about a 10 minute walk. We recommend that you buy a one way ticket, so you are free to choose how you want to return or if maybe you want to stop somewhere new long the way.

Its important to know that you are going to the biggest island at the Rosario islands. You have to tell the guy that you are going to ISLA GRANDE. Tell him that you have to get to “PARAISO SECRETO” or “HOSTALES PARAISO SECRETO”. When you get there, ask for GALERÍA.

you will recognice our deck for the green color with orange tires.
