There is only one carrier that flies to Providencia and that is West Caribbean Airways. The airplane that flies from San Andres to Providencia might rattle the nerves of nervous or inexperienced flyers. It's a twin engine plane that on the inside has Cyrillic writing explaining what stuff does. It is easily pushed around by strong wind and don't be surprised if you here farm animals on the plane. Landing in Providencia is really amazing and you should enjoy the scenery.

There is one main road that goes around Providencia island so it is fairly hard to get lost when you are on that road. The road is in fairly good condition and as you can kinda see by the picture it does not get too busy.

you also can travel by ship, rather cargo ships, but that can take you between seventy-two and eighty hours....and to take a ship you have been in Cartagena or in Barranquilla, is cheaper but you waste a lot of time.

The best way to know that small island is to rent a golf car and drive the 35 kilometers around the island when you are able to stop, swim, have lunch, and see the touristic places.
