San Andrés had been on my list for a long time now. Situated on the Caribbean Sea, it is just the perfect spot for a vacation. The city has been categorized as World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. The beaches, islets, cays, and the coral reefs add to the natural beauty of the city. Take day trips and enjoy the splendid weather that it has offered all throughout the year. Take a look at the few things you can do when you are in San Andrés.
Visit Johnny Cay
I took a ride from the prime beach of San Andres to reach this island. As soon as I set foot, the white sand got me all mesmerized. The island is the habitat of iguanas. The islet is just beautiful and is filled with tourist during the weekends. I headed out to snorkel over the reef. I found many drinks and food stalls in here where I tried the Caribbean lobster, coco loco, and also fried fish.
Go Scuba Diving
This is one of the primary reason I visited San Andres. The clear and warm water is just perfect for it. The colorful coral reefs, tons of fishes, rock formations, and sharks are some of the few things you can get a glimpse of. There are options of wreck dives, shore dives, and also night dives. You will find many professional diving shops with dive-masters and instructors who can speak Spanish and English.
Go Kayaking through Mangroves
Are you up for a different experience? Go kayaking through the mangroves. Book a tour which will lead you through the long mangrove tunnels. The tour offers an ethereal view of the greenery. Through the tour, you will get to learn about the essential and exclusive ecosystem. In the tour, you are also going to have snorkeling sessions and get a glimpse of the fished that have hatched newly.
