Went with girlfriend from Spain for a week to San Andres and was certain that one way or another her blonde hair and blue eyes would play a large part in negotiating prices on the island. Being born in Bogota, I speak fluent Spanish and more important "Colombian". The experience was excellent but about 10 mins into the 20-25 min... More

My son has wanted to go scuba diving but he is only 9 and of course that won't work. As an alternative we were watching a video on Snuba diving and we went to San Andres for that specific purpose. He had a great time (although there was some confusion on the age limit and they wanted him to be... More

A group of six of us did this activity. Basically what happens is you swim to a small floating area a few yards from shore, you climb the ladder until your head is out of the water, they put the bell over your head, and you then submerge to the ocean floor. From here you have a guide rope and... More

Recently I travelled to Bermuda where I did Hartley's Helmet dive and this experience was much better considering it's off the shore versus a boat ways away. Must Do! You don't even need to know how to swim...while not advertised, it's true. In Bermuda, our group had a guy from NYC that never swam before. Pay for the CD its... More

Well, if you're on vacation in San Andres, you can not miss this experience!. West Point is close to San Luis, from you will get less than 10 minutes, crossing the other side of the island, which is completely different. The attention is quite good, people are friendly and respect the established schedules. Before the diving you get a little... More

I am not sure if anyone is aware of this great unique kind of activity. It is an under water walking activity called AquaNautas in San Andres Islands Colombia.
