  • The only cool attraction is the dolphins. It's still a very quick presentation. For those who want to take pictures with them has to pay additional. The photos with dolphins are available only to women and children up to 10 years. The sea is beautiful, very green!

  • Brief visit to the Oceanarium, given that it takes place within the activity of visit to the Islas del Rosario, is reached only by via marina. Very nice show of dolphins, very attractive for children. Many marine species. It is worth visiting it.

  • An aquarium in the wild to see evolve with evolve poisons, sharks, dolphins and other marine birds. If you have Playa Blanca from Cartagena in boat to choose this option. At the time, or we went there was a lot of people and eventually the boat left us only 1:30 but eventually enough. for all to see

Where to stay in Cartagena

Despite its status as a major tourist hub, Cartagena offers a good choice of affordable places to stay. If you're looking to splurge, consider staying at one of the town's restored colonial-era buildings, which now house boutique hotels packed with modern amenities. Alternatively, several old monasteries in Cartagena's walled colonial district offer outstanding facilities at very high prices. Budget-conscious travelers can explore the many mid-range hotels and low-cost hostels clustered in Getsemani, an up-and-coming neighborhood and center of the backpacker scene.
