San Andres for honeymoon - is that a good idea?

Would you recommend San Andres for honeymoon?

Which hotel?

We are getting married on December 16th...is that a good time to go? How long should we stay?

How good is snorkeling there? Does anyone know if it is better than in Curaçao?

What kind of fun activities would we find there?

Thanks so much

SAI is all about the water and water sports. There is not much else to do on the island except relax, drink and chill out on the beach.

If you are looking for something really fancy for your honeymoon, then this is not the island for you. SAI has mostly basic accomodation and basic food. The only upscale hotel is the Sunrise hotel in downtown.

However if you are on a budget and want to go somewhere with stunning beaches and great snorkelling, then this is perfect.

Yes, the weather in December is nice however you may experience a brief rain shower now and then.

You should plan to go for a week to 10 days.

Olá! Parabéns pelo casamento! Se você decidir viajar para San Andrés seguramente vai passar uma lua de mel gostosa. A ilha é maravilhosa, bonita demais. Uma semana é necessária para conhecê-la bem, mas se quiser visitar também a ilha de Providencia, vai precisar de pelo menos mais três dias.

O mergulho na ilha é demais, mas não saberia dizer se melhor do que nas águas de Curação. Ao repeito das atividades, na ilha há várias excursões... pra mim a melhor é a visita às ilhotas de Aquario, Haynes & Johny Cay.

Ao respeito dos hotéis, eu gostei muito do Decameron Aquario. Nenhum resort é luxoso como os de Cancun, Aruba ou Punta Cana, mas o preço duma viagem à ilha é mais do que convidativo. O importante é que San Andrés fica no Caribe, o melhor mar do mundo!!!

Um abraço.
