Reasons to Charter a Yacht to Colombia Caribbean

Caribbean Color

For charter guests who are ever charmed by the palette of Caribbean color, this side of Colombia doesn’t disappoint. The Rosario Islands plunge you in to warm shades of blue and green, serving up exquisite snorkeling. The Tayrona National Park is another water world of wonder offering diving and surfing against a backdrop of flushed green jungle.

Reefs and Rays

The Caribbean side of Colombia is a divers paradise. Expect miles upon miles of white beaches flanked by intricate coral reefs and shipwrecks resting on the seabed. San Andreas and Providencia are dual islands just off the coastline boasting wild stingrays and a myriad of cave and wall dives to excite every level of underwater adventurer. These waters have been declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve further earmarking their status as a sublime snorkeling and diving spot.

Historic Architecture

Cartagena is considered one of the prettiest places in Colombia with its beautiful old Spanish quarters, its café culture, and its old-world feel. As the city was always at risk of pirate attacks back in the day, it has been mapped out in a confusing maze of streets to steer off would be attackers, making it an enchanting storied place to stroll around and get lost. Beyond the easy romanticism of colonial colors, the country offers rich pre-Columbian ruins and majestic monoliths.

Where to Visit in Colombia Caribbean


The trump card in Colombia’s pack, for centuries Cartagena has been sweeping travelers off their feet. Celebrated as being the diamond in the rough, this colorful colonial styled city is a vision of ornate balconies, paint box buildings, horse and carriages clipping through the winding streets, and simply stunning piazzas that seem built exclusively for dancing and people watching. Sipping a ripe morning coffee in Cartagena surrounded by pretty churches is pure pleasure.

Islas de Rosario

A stunning archipelago, the Rosario Islands and nearby Corals National Natural Park are a perfect example of why Colombia’s Caribbean side is a veritable yacht playground. A collection of endless islands, some dressed in sand and others in rock, some tucked beneath a mangrove cloak and others open to the wide blue skies, you can take your pick. Kayak around the coast, laze in a hammock with cocktail in hand, cast your line for a spot of sports fishing or dive into the crystal blue depths.

Parque Nacional Natural Tayrona

For yacht charters, coastal national parks are something of a holy grail and Colombia’s dazzling Parque Nacional Natural Tayrona doesn’t disappoint. Stretching in shades of gold, blue, and green all the way from Santa Marta to the rushing river mouth of Rio Pedras, you get 35km of sparkling shoreline to explore and a backdrop of thousands of hectares of thick wildlife rich rainforest and coral clad seas. Diving is a dream and for those who want to glide on water, there’s also some great surf spots. On land, you can dip into the jungle where monkeys chatter and birds call from the tangled branch.
