San Andrés Island
If you are searching for an ideal combination of relaxing on white sand beaches, snorkeling among tropical fish and lovely historic architecture and culture, San Andrés is the perfect destination. This small island, shaped like a sea horse, is located some 500 miles northwest of Colombia. While small in size, it offers tremendous, pristine beauty.
The island is officially part of Colombia, but it has a long connection with England and a multicultural and bilingual culture, with the most common spoken languages being Spanish, English and Creole. Equally diverse is the ecosystem, featuring reefs, geysers, groves, and cays. Needless to say, it’s perfect for diving, snorkeling, and outdoor exploring.
