San Andres Island is A Place to Visit

Not everyone knows the San Andres Archipelago. It’s situated 230 kilometres from Nicaragua Coast, in the Caribbean Sea. The Archipelago comprises of three islands: San Andres, Providence and Santa Catalina. Politically belongs to Colombia, but there was a long dispute over this century between Colombia and Nicaragua on the ownership of this Archipelago.

Today I am going to talk specifically about San Andres Island. It ‘s the biggest of the islands , you can visit the entire island by driving a golf car at a speed of 30 km/ph all around the coast path in just about one hour.

San Andres is a coral island and it’s surrounded by beautiful coral especially on the right side of the island; you can see the waves breaking on the coral from the beach, it’s just spectacular.

The pink sand and the sea made of 7 different layers of colours are the characteristics of San Andres. The Airport is in the north and it’s not far at all from the mains hotels and shops.

Decameron Hotel Chain has 5 Hotels on the island:

• Aquarium

• San Luis

• Marazul

• Delfines

• Rocky Cay

I booked a full package with the Company with everything included: eat as much as you like, drink as much as you like in any of the 5 Hotels on the Island.

I found this option very rewarding as when you are on vacation on the beach, you normally don’t bring your purse with credit card and lots of cash for the fear to lose it or get it stolen. So with this package , it’ s everything easier you only need that purse if you’re going shopping as San Andres is like Panama: exempt from taxes when shopping.

You can also buy in advance tickets to the excursion in any of the first three Hotels mentioned in the list. You can go on a crystal glass boat where you can see all the fishes and algae which grows all over the sea bed. The scene is just amazing. In Rocky Cay, there is a beautiful spot where you can go snorkelling and see over 50 different types of fish.

If you are a good swimmer, you could spot also rays. There is also the Morgan Cove to visit. Its legend says that in the Cove there is the Treasure of the Pirate.

If you are in need of a good holiday, choose San Andres. It‘s perfect for:

• Honeymoon.

• Family and kids.

• Friends or couples.

It’s a magic place.
