"Closest I've been to paradise" Top 5 Page for this destination Intendenciade San Andrés y Providencia by canuckmike

I always had a fascination with San Andres island. Over my Christmas holidays I decided to take an all inclusive package trip there. Quickly being bored with San Andres I caught a plane to Providencia. The island looked amazing from the plane. Mountainous, green and surrounded my many different colours of blue. Upon arrival I enjoyed the airport noticing that it was open because of the lack of windows and doors. I made my way to the west side of the island and stayed in Aguadulce. It was one of the few times where I felt that I could completely relax.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Peaceful, relaxing and beautiful.
  • Cons:Colombia is trying to make it the next big place.
  • In a nutshell:Paradise.

    I'm going to visit Isla de San Andres for the New Year and I'm really looking forward to my trip :) Will be staying in San Luis village. Do you think one week would be enough time to visit also Providencia? Thanks for the info :)

    Great tips! We're seriously considering Providencia for our honeymoon in March. Any good ideas for where to stay? About the airlines - West Caribbean went out of business a couple years ago because both planes crashed. Now only Satena serves the island.

    Providencia sounds to be a lovely place. I hope to go there next year.

    Thanks for the transport. tip, I'm very much a nervous flyer and it's a good thing to know in advance about the plane. Happy travels! :^)

    Very interesting write up. Is it possible to get there by sea or is it too far? Looking for ideas for a visit to Colombia in a few weeks. Cheers.
