The San Andres islands are far from the coast so their waters are clearer – visibility is about 20 – 30 metres, guaranteeing better than average Caribbean diving. Shoals of snapper and grunts school in patterns, watched by nurse sharks, grouper and barracuda to add to the positive side of the equation amongst sponges, star corals and gorgonians.

These islands are a bit like Colombia’s Hawaii, so expect beach lovin’ holiday makers as well as serious divers. The added extras are the fresh coffee famously and abundantly available, the coffee plantations, colonial history and the relaxed reggae vibe.
