A LITTLE MORE ABOUT SAN ANDRES AND PROVIDENCIA ISLANDS
Just over 800 kilometres northwest of Colombia’s Caribbean coast and only 150 kilometres east of Nicaragua lies a series of idyllic islets and cays with beaches, coral reefs and perfect, clear waters. San Andres and Providencia,declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in the year 2000, offer world-class diving, with pristine reefs and 30 meters of visibility. You can hike in the green mountains or cycle the coastal paths of either island. Or, of course, simply unwind on one of the many stunning beaches. Both islands can get busy in holiday season and access can be difficult.
WHEN TO GO
As with most of the Caribbean, the islands are a year round destination with constant average temperatures in the high 20s. July to October is the official rainy season with the risk of the occasional tropical storm.
