  • Sweet beach is known by a. Hotel step that looks nice but stay soon. I was hosted on the island so I went to meet La Pola, a sweet beach restaurant where you eat seafood with regional flavor at an affordable price. Then they let you use the facilities to go to the beach

  • Finger away! This "resort" in a brochure at our hotel in Catagena de Indias was recruited under the fine-sounding name of "Isla Crystal". Looked good, sounded good (was more expensive than those offered in the tourist port of Cartagena, approx. 35 Euro, but, hey, taxi pick up, private beach, great lunch, you want yourself Yes sometimes what holiday...) and proved to be as, say, getting used to. We were in the morning a three-quarters of an hour too early picked (so nothing with coffee, smoke or breakfast) chauffeured firstonce criss -cross through Cartagena to collect more guests to other hotels and. Had we known that the boat 10 minutes away departs walk from the hotel, we would have been better, and instead were drinking a cup of coffee instead of spending 45 minutes in a minibus. The boat pushes on the tourist port of Cartagena (as all other) and is a speed boat for up to 50 people. Before it went off there was comfortable waiting for the drop, but still an hour again without coffee and cigarette. The cruise itself is a dream, azure sea, old Spanish fortresses, small coral islands and pelicans, including (if you like that, the boats 'jump' in rauherem seas but quite sharply from shaft to shaft, was my wife ready, I however quite impressed). After an hour we reached the Isla Grande, the largest of the Islas de Rosario. And 48 people left the boat. You had chosen a different offer of a third-party (smart move). We were two more sailed on a tiny beach at the northern end of the island. A tiny (if also quite nice) beach with a rundown "premises" at the "restaurant" is located, a sort of shabby canopy. In reception we were two real filibusters, the 'boss' and his 'waiter'. The 'boss' not long doused, was unfriendly and rude (the question whether you could here get coffee and breakfast, was vehemently denied, only alcoholic drinks were on offer. Clearly, cocktails, bad expensive cocktails are the first thing in the morning as needed without breakfast a boat ride) then began the "boss" with a greedy twinkle in the eye to tow (thank God fake) coral necklaces and told a herzzereissende as well as implausible story about his hard life as coral divers and arts and crafts. When we wanted to buy partout no chains, he showed his true colors and was quite wirsch, "threatened" us, as long as not to leave us until we had bought something alone. Schlechtgelaunt, mumbling moved ultimately dannen, curses and Imprecations and gave us the "waiter". A toothless, somewhat degenerated mulattoes you had tied an apron which as a sign of his official dignity, to make him go through as a "Waiter". In contrast to his boss but a really nice fellow, of us ultimately secretly with coffee, breakfast (of course, patacones) and self-hergestelltem "alcohol" (fermented coconut milk, broadly grinning served) supplied (nevertheless the best patacones that I've ever had which he got from any adjoining property) and GI smoked our cigarettes. The lunch he picked also neighbours, but a compliment which fried fish with Arroz con Coco was perfectly alright, the neighbors know their stuff. The rest of the day was leisurely, and sometime the "waiter" in his hammock unmeshed (after we not so spoke the totally overpriced drinks as the "boss" liked to have had that) we went swimming, sunbathing, snoozing in the shade of the Palm trees. In between us the speed boat for a tour of the "Ozeanariums" on the neighbouring island of a trip, you can save yourself also picked. Unless you like the sight of captive dolphins in too small pool. Then it went back to the beach and around 17 o'clock back to Cartagena. Bottom line: Anyone looking for luxury or some fancy (it appears the thing in the prospectus) will be disappointed here, the site is unkempt, that concern quite weathered and the beach is not shut off (say, should get his stuff out of the sight, past any dudes walk once in a while), the Korallenverkaufsshow is annoying (at least it has paid already properly for the whole package , you need not "butter"ride, especially since the corals in this area are severely compromised ever buy any, but are fakes...), the drinks are totally overpriced Colombian standards, the Oceanarium an animal tragedy. The lunch was good (but of course also to expensive, Red Snapper with rice and patacones are there in and around Cartagena for approx. 3 euro) and the sea to the Islas de Rosario a dream. So definitely not a 'Package' book, the tourist harbour in Cartagena you can significantly cheaper a crossing to the Islas rise and is there also not bound and can even order drinks and take care of food. You can access to our "private beach" is then with the acquisition of a can of beer at the friendly toothless waiter buy, as we have seen it with other (more informed) tourists. The absolute hammer but then came upon arrival in Cartagena. The booked trip to the Hotel...gab it is not. No bus, no taxi, no one who drove us back. Had already been paid. All leaders were gone just in time to return. For us, no problem, our hotel in Gethsemane was nearby and a stroll through Cartagena sets the mood, other travellers from our boat had there bigger problems, were outside their hotels and they had to take a cab on its own account. They allow to be his money better spent.
