While the Rosario Islands are...
Edward R E
, Jan 2017
While the Rosario Islands are beautiful the crew we had on the boat did not speak much if any English which was a bit of a concern if we had an issue it would have been a problem. We spoke enough Spanish to communicate but they should have someone who speaks some english on the boat for that Price The boat driver insisted on speeding all the way to the islands which made for an uncomfortable ride as it was slightly windy and whitecaps were the norm for some of the ride. I had to tell him to slow down three times. The liunch provided as part of the tour was very traditional and fine.. I would say that the white sandy beaches of the island were somewhat oversold in that they pretty rocky with white rocks! Try and pick a day that the seas are calm because it an hour ride on a boat that's probably too little for the sea beyond a calm days
