San Andrés Island

San Andrés is one of the two principal islands of San Andrés and Providence archipelago. It is located 200km east of Nicaragua although it belongs to Colombia.

Covered in coconut palms, San Andrés, the largest island in the archipelago, is indeed paradisiacal Caribbean, the sea surrounding the area is known by Colombians as the "Mar de Siete Colores" (seven-coloured sea) due to the variations of depth.

Gustavo Rojas Pinilla international airport (IATA: ADZ) is the main airport in the archipelago, it has direct connections with Colombia's and Panama's largest airports (Bogotá, Medellín, Cali, Cartagena, Barranquilla and Panama City).
