  • Beautiful islands

    by corazoncito75 Written Dec 21, 2007

    These two islands, San Andres y Providencia, are lovely. San Andress is more touristy and resort-filled, but the beaches are absolutely beautiful, the water is incredibly warm and retains up to seven hues of blue. The resorts are more than accomodating. I reccommend the Isleno or Aquario. Both offer full accomodations w/ excellent food and buffets that are far better than average, especially if you enjoy fresh and exotic fruits and juices as well as Colombian food of all kinds. Activities abound with water sports, swimming, etc. There is also great shopping if you like to take advantage of the port prices w/o tax.

    Imagine waking up in the morning and stepping out of your hotel room immediately on the beach. That is Providencia an island that is more rustic and less touristy, but incredibly charming and beautiful. There are fewer people and more scenic features to enjoy. And most of your accomodations are found right on the beach. Recommended activities: snorkel, swim, enjoy fresh caught snapper cooked right on the beach, a tour of the island (by boat), and of course the scenery. Recommended length of stay: 3 - 5 days.

    Honestly, I'm not sure why more travellers do not know about these islands as they are just wonderful as any others. The food is great, scenery charming, and the people are warm.

    PROVIDENCE ISLAND:
    In this place maybe you can go to the mountains and walk all day and if you like fishing you can do it there.

    SAN ANDRES ISLAND:
    There are many activities in which you can participate and have fun, but many people do not know about them.
    For example: To do a tour around the island riding a horse or driving a bote.
    If you do these activities you can feel the nature around you and relax and find yourself.

    The Interior of Providencia Island

    Since Providencia is a mountainous island most of the population has settled along the coast. This leaves a good size portion to be a nice empty jungle.

    Dam

    On the island of Providencia you can have a nice little walk up to a dam. Just walk east from the town of Aguadulce towards the interior.
