Experiencing San Andrés

On land

Ideal for shoppers due to the wide variety of goods imported to the island. Activities include a visit to San Luis, a small stretch of white sand; a tour of the island; the aquarium; Johnny Cay; the Blowing Hole; and Big Pond, a lake at the top of the island. At La Loma, visit the oldest Baptist Church in America. Enjoy partying to the rhythms of Caribbean music and savoring a typical dish at Fisherman’s Place.

At sea

Dive in coral reefs and the aquarium accompanied by fish in many colors, butterfly, sergeant, bishop, and globe, among them. You may see seahorses around the gorgonias, rays, and, perhaps, barracudas. Visibility is between 15 and 30 m, the currents are few, and there are over 40 immersion sites: La Caleta de José, La Calera, Las Piedras de la Langosta, Trampa Tortuga, Nirvana, Bowle View, Wild Life, La Rocosa, El Avión, and others.

Engage in sailing, windsurfing, surfing, and parasailing. Bonefish, shad, saltonas, snappers, and groupers make sports fishing a great adventure.

Where to stay:

At a wide variety of hotels, apartments, houses of islanders, and tourist inns.
