Providencia and San Andres are two Colombian Caribbean islands near Nicaragua with white sandy beaches, palm trees, and crystalline blue waters.
From Bogota or Cartagena, you can fly to San Andres within a couple of hours and for less than 100$. The island attracts many Colombian tourists, and the hotel resorts don’t fit well with the paradisical atmosphere.
Fortunately, you can take a boat or another short flight to travel to Providencia. The island is still hidden from mass tourism, and you will be able to appreciate the chill reggae vibe and the fantastic sceneries.
There is the misconception that San Andres is similar to Providencia. Well, they could not be more wrong.
Providencia is one the most peaceful and beautiful island in Colombia and fewer travelers are aware of its existence. You need to take another boat or plane from San Andres to arrive in this hidden paradise with reggae vibes, crystal-blue ocean, and 0 hotel resort. Climb the peak of the island to get a 360 degrees view, explore Crab Cay island, dive with turtles and chill on white-sand beaches.
San Andres is a touristic Caribbean island. There are too many hotel resorts in my opinion, but you can still find some lovely places. You can fly from Bogota or Cartagena. Chill on San Luis beach, explore Morgan’s Cave and take a boat to Johnny Cay island.
