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.
