The trip to the island takes 45 minutes on a little boat. It's not a nice trip, some people can throw up because the boats are not comfortable enough and hit so much on the open sea. The island is uninhabited and has no infrastructure. This trip is an adventure, indeed.

There's a bumpy 40 minute ride to get to this paradise. I thought it was good fun, my girlfriend thought it was a nightmare. Try to get a sit closer to the boat captain, where things go smoother. And have in mind that this is a paradise, one of the most beautiful places you'll ever see. Obviously there's nothing to... More

Cayo Bolivar is certainly one of the prettiest places I've ever been. The ride there is a bit scary, lots of waves, look for a calm day, with little wind, otherwise you might experience unnecessary emotions. Take a looot of sunscreen, there's almost no shadows at the beach. the food is simple but delicious, but you cant buy anything there.

If you are planning a trip to San Andres Island, you definitely have to save a day to visit Cayo Bolivar. You can book the tour in the main marina for 80 dollars approx. that includes the ride in an uncovered boat (very bumpy ride) for 1 hour, lunch (an amazing fish with coconut rice and fried banana) and beverages....

It's a small and quiet island in the middle of Caribbean Sea. There are no bars, restaurants or anything, so it's perfect for those who want to relax and enjoy the nature. To get there, you pay about 180.000 COP (U$ 100) and the boat leaves around 8 a.m. The beverages and the lunch (fish, rice and salad) are included.

The place is so beautiful, if you like beach and nature, you have to go there. But it's 1h of motorboat and people can get sea sick.
