Corales del Rosario and San Bernardo
The Corales del Rosario y San Bernardo National Natural Park is perfect for observing colorful coral reefs in shallow waters. Located at 45 kilometers from the Bay of Cartagena, the park protects underwater ecosystems, mainly the coral reefs, which are fragile ecosystems, inhabited by a multitude of invertebrate species and a variety of fish whose movements and colors resemble ballet choreography. Extensive algae prairies and sea grass beds are also found in the park.
Multi-color underwater garden in the crystal clear waters of the Colombian Caribbean.
The coral reefs, with their enormous profusion of invertebrates and an endless number of multi-colored fish, are true underwater gardens that constitute the greatest charm of this protected area. White beaches for enjoying sunbaths are another distinguishing attraction of the park. Thanks to its crystalline and placid waters, Corales del Rosario y San Bernardo are privileged spaces for recreational water activities, among them canoeing, snorkeling, and diving.
Mangroves, coral reefs, and sea prairies make up one of the most diverse and productive flora and fauna complexes in the entire planet. This environment is suitable for the growth of algae, bird nesting, and the breeding of countless marine species
