Relaxation by the sea

Why visit Colombian beaches ?

The waves of the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific ocean, welcomed the rules come to Colombia seeking places among the abundant coasts and Islands where it is easy to forget the problems of the outside world.


With 1,020 miles of Caribbean and 1,360 miles of Pacific coastlines, Colombia offers a large selection of beaches—about 300. Some are far from the noise, while on others the party never stops.

Natural aquarium

Visit a natural aquarium in the archipelago of San Andrés and Providence, where the water is the clearest in the Caribbean and colorful fish can be seen without a mask.

Black and White Sand Beaches

Unlike the Caribbean beaches, Pacific beaches have dark sand, which gives them a unique charm. Many turtles, including the giant leatherback sea turtle, nest here.
