“The first baptist church”

Primera Iglesia Bautista
Reviewed October 1, 2016

Located up in the hill of San Andreas. It is the first church built by the baptist church. They run a school there as well. A donation is required to visit the church. The local call this place Mirador. Climb to the top of the church towers and see the magnificent view of the island both side. A great place to stop.

You can get to the church by 'colectivo' from El Centro (2.000 pesos). At the entrance they will ask for a small fee to go to the bell tower, where you will have a nice view of the island including Haynes Cay, El Acuario and Johnny Cay.

The young guys will give you some additional info about the history of the church if you wish.

You can see it from many different points around San Andres, it stands proud as the first church ever built in the island. It still has major political and social clout.

I recommend rent a Car (Mula) and enjoy the view. Take care and dont go by yourself. (For security reasons)

This is the first baptist church built on San Andres. If you want to really see how islanders live, you must visit this church. As this is a rather unsafe neighborhood, it is better to get a tour to the island, which should include a visit to the church. Please take in mind that this church is still on service, so if there is a service ongoing, you may not be able to enter the church. Anyway, just seeing it from the outside pays for the visit!
