Rosario Islands Overview

The Rosario Islands Archipelago was formed less than 5000 years ago. Active mud volcanoes rose the submarine floor until favorable conditions for algae growth allowed the coral reef to be developed. When the sea level went down, some areas of the coral reef emerged and formed the islands.

Man has visited the archipelago since Precolumbian times. Yet, there is no evidence that shows the islands were permanently inhabited before 1950 when some Barú Island fishermen decided to establish an area dedicated to fishing and for growing coconuts.

In the 1970s, families from Cartagena and other parts of the country began building houses and resorts on the beautiful islands.
