La Piscinita is such a beautiful place!! I go there everytime I visit San Andrés. Natural and crystal sea water where you can see exotic fish swimming around you without any problems. Once you get to La Piscinita you'll have to pay an entrance fare, it's not expensive so don't get scared, this money will help to keep the place... More

This is one of my favourite places in this planet. You take a tour boat in San Andres and they will take you to the Acuarium. Here you can swim in shallow and deep waters and do some snorkeling. Once I even saw a small shark - innofensive.

These are some of the many 'must do' places in San Andres. They are good inexpensive experiences. If time is a matter, I'd personally stick with Acuario and Westview pior to La Piscinita. All are great spots for snorkeling. Make sure you are bringing your waterproof camera.

This was by far an amazing experience. Feeding the fish, jumping off a cliff diving board, swimming underwater with beautiful fish! Be sure to bring swim shoes, goggles and your snorkel (you can rent for a couple of dollars). My boyfriend who doesnt swim got the guts to try it out and it was such a "magical" experience for him!... More

It's amazing all the type of fish you see there. It is really relaxing and the water is so calm and so pretty.

Sure you have to pay to go there and they will try to sell you even the air you breath, but thats the same deal all aorund you, but what you get here that I ahve not seen in any other island in the Caribbean is the fishes, right there for you to see them with or without your goggles.... More

This was one of the most beautiful experience of my life, San Andres is already amazing but El Acuario is just a real dream, you can see all kind of fish, manta rayas, they will be all around you, you will experience an ocean with 7 color, very hard to describe but sublime to live it
