Decameron Aquarium

Traveler (4946)
Panoramas (9)
Pool & Beach (803)


In the midst of an Antillean environment, this resort has an exceptional architecture with circular towers overlooking the sea at ‘Punta Hansa’ – at the northern end of the Island of San Andres – which allow for wonderful panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea. These buildings are alongside a long wooden dock that leads to a natural pool in the sea and with an aquatic platform ideal for snorkeling and other water sports. The Decameron Aquarium is located approximately 10 minutes from the airport and is a well sought out location for tourists since the longest and most beautiful beach of the island is located only a few blocks away, surrounded by a boardwalk, parallel to a commercial area with restaurants, discos and the most exclusive bars. You will enjoy an enchanting paradise that can be explored completely on foot and where a cultural mixture of English, Spanish, Pirates and Corsairs can be explored.

The location of the hotel is very good, its facilities make it an unforgettable experience for anyone visiting. However I suggest that they should rethink the price they charge for the services as they are a bit high. They also have to modernize the rooms as they look quite

You take a taxi from the airport, which is about $6. It is an all inclusive resort.

I just came back from the Aquarium. No zika in San Andres yet and not many bugs other than on Johnny Cay so the only risk would be the weekend visitors from mainland Colombia. As for the walk to the actual beach and/or downtown/boardwalk was maybe 5 minutes walk San Luis beach was indeed not very big and San Luis is a cab ride away from downtown.
