Johnny Cay and the sea of seven colours

San Andrés and Providence is an archipelago of great tropical islands in the Caribbean. They are located much closer to Nicaragua than to Colombia.

San Andres is the largest island. It is 7 mi/11 km long and 1.5 mi/2 km wide. It has wide pink and white beaches, coral reefs, coconut trees and an extremely friendly population. This relaxing place is good for long periods of fishing, diving and duty-free shopping. Be prepared for expensive food as nearly everything is imported.

Old Providence and Santa Catalina , some 45 mi/75 km to the north are less developed and even more relaxed than San Andres—it’s worth the extra travel time.
