Located in the southwestern Caribbean Sea, 68 miles (110 kilometers) off the coast of Nicaragua, San Andres is part of the archipelago of San Andres, Providencia, and Santa Catalina. The archipelago, which is formed by the three main islands and a number of cays and islets, is one of Colombia’s thirty-two departments, and San Andres is its capital. The islands’ captivating natural beauty has made them a prime tourist destination, and tourism is indisputably their main business.

San Andres is just 10 miles (27 kilometers) square, but together with the other islands of the archipelago, it’s the setting of countless thrilling legends involving the sailors, corsairs, and pirates of long ago, who recognized the advantages of the archipelago’s strategic location near the coast of Central and South America mainland. The feared Henry Morgan is even rumored to have hidden much of his treasure on San Andres. Over time, as more people made their way to the island and settled there, a rich mix of cultures inevitably occurred, incorporating English, Spanish, Afro-Antillean, and even Dutch influences. The island’s diverse heritage is reflected in the fact that many inhabitants are multilingual, and some of them—especially members of the island’s Raizal ethnic community—speak a creole language known as San Andres-Providencia Creole.

San Andres enjoys a tropical wet and dry climate, like much of the rest of the Caribbean region. The weather is warm year-round, with temperatures ranging from 77 °F (25 °C) to 86 °F (30 °C) and an average annual temperature of 81 °F (27 °C). Although the weather doesn’t change dramatically from one season to another, there is a dry season and a rainy season. The rainy season runs from May to December, but the rains are typically not very heavy or long-lasting, making this island paradise an enjoyable destination at any time of year.

Located approximately three hours by boat from San Andres, they’re known as “the hidden treasure of the western Caribbean.” Both islands are quieter than San Andres, and they’re connected to one another by the romantic Lovers’ Bridge. The conditions are ideal for scuba diving, especially for less-experienced divers.
