We went snorkelling for the day, and although were a little daunted by the price, we had an amazing guide named Junior. Not much English was spoken, but he was in the water with us the whole time pointing out all the cool fishes and sea life. Best snorkel experience I've had.

I went on the beginner (non-certified) scuba dive on Saturday. My guides were Junior and Juan. I typically don't write reviews but I feel compelled to write something about my experience because it was such a life changing day for me. First, the office staff are very friendly and organized. They drove us to the marina and ensured we got... More

We took the PADI certification course while staying for 3 days at the San Pedro Majagua hotel in Islas del Rosario, outside of Cartagena, Colombia. The course was excellent, the experience enjoyable, the service top notch. Juan Cubillos was our instructor, and I cannot recommend him enough. He worked very hard to make sure all of us were properly trained,... More

I can't thank Juan and the staff at Diving Planet enough for making my open water scuba diving such an amazing experience! I was a bit apprehensive about going to Cartagena to complete my certification- but all my fears were put at ease by the friendly and professional staff. The waters were pretty rough on my second day, but Juan... More

We loved diving with Diving Planet. From the original email enquiry to the exchanges with Andrés and finally to diving with Jorge everything was fantastic. We were especially impressed with their dive program for amputee veterans. Incredible!

I really enjoyed my experience with Diving Planet. My only issue was with the speediness of the first day of my two days of diving. When we left Cartagena and arrived on the island, we were transferred immediately to the dive boat for our two dives. No opportunity to relax and get ready. Plus, people were very hungry and couldn't... More

We went for a beginners dive (since we are not certified divers) at Rosario islands, it was beautiful and professional. Our dive instructor, Darwin, was with us the entire time through the dive. Darwin made us feel safe and had an amazing time in the water. Diving planet was punctual, professional and it was truly seamless experience. Highly recommend for... More

Went to the island for just a day in the sun but after talking with the staff they sold us on the experience. Everything was simple and the staff were so helpful, really made for an easy stress-free experience. The training was fun and informative and everything was explained well.

Hello. So glad you did´t miss the opportunity to see the best you can see at the Rosario Islands: The underwater world. Many people just see the surface beauties but they don't know how much more they can see in the bottom of coral reefs we have in the National Natural Park. More
