Isla de San Andrés Things to Do: 22 reviews and 62 photos
Visiting the nearby islets is one of the most popular things to do on the island. Numerous small independent tour companies offer boat excursions, most of them depart from San Andrés town. As I was staying in San Luis I had to get to El Centro first. Getting out of the bus near the harbour I soon sighted a kiosk of one of the companies. I booked the tour and they told me that we were going to live in about half an hour. While waiting outside I met a friendly family from Bogotá with whom I then spent the rest of the day.
It was a whole day tour. First they took us to Acuario (a sandbank surrounded by shallow water, good for snorkeling) and the nearby Heynes Cay, followed by a beautiful tiny islet Johnny Cay where we had a delicious fish lunch in a coconut grove and enjoyed a lovely white-sand beach and crystal clear water of the sea. All the islets that we visited are breathtaking but unfortunately packed with tourists during the New Year time.
After arrival in San Andrés town I walked with the family along the beach to their hotel and then took a bus back to San Luis.
