Snorkeling, Providencia Island

Diving & snorkeling: with about 40 dive spots at your fingertips, this is a must-dive and snorkel location. Providencia is seen as one of the best dive spots in the world. Both islands offer day and night dives. A famous dive spot at San Andres is Morgan’s Cave, named after the famous English pirate Henry Morgan who controlled the islands for years. Rumor has it that his treasures are hidden in this cave. We can arrange special diving packages for you on both of the islands.

Relaxing: unwind in a luxurious all-inclusive resort or explore the small islands by bicycle. Enjoy a beach day, pass by colorful wooden houses and listen to the island’s birds or some laid-back reggae music.

Johnny Cay Natural Regional Park: a short 10-15 minute boat ride away from San Anders town, you will find pristine white-sand beaches with coconut trees and about 500 iguanas living there. Ideal for sunbathing, but watch out when swimming due to dangerous undercurrents.

La Piscinita: situated on the west side of San Andres, La Piscinita has great snorkeling in usually calm water. The plenty of fish that surround you will eat out of your hand, so make sure to bring an underwater camera if you have one.

San Luis: this little village is much more laid-back than the bigger San Andres Town. It has nice beaches and traditional wooden houses. Snorkeling is good here most of the time.
