Reggae music, clear blue waters, unspoilt beaches, mountains, jungle, the world’s third largest barrier reef and the peace of remote places is what you’ll find in Providencia Island, located in the Colombian Archipelago of San Andrés, Providencia and Santa Catalina…
It sounds like the perfect place to find big resorts and thousands of tourists, but it’s actually the opposite: probably because of it’s remote location, with just 5000 people and a few small hotels, this Caribbean paradise has managed to stay untouched by big tourist developments and is currently a Sea Flower Biosphere Reserve (UNESCO), which supports the protection of its landscapes, ecosystems and species, as well as a sustainable social and economical development.
Providencia Island is frequently described as a place where you can find today what the Caribbean used to be many years ago…
Here are some of the beaches you can visit:
- Playa Manzanillo
- South West Bay (Bahía Sur Oeste)
- Fresh Water Bay (Bahía Agua Dulce)
- Maracaibo Bay
- Santa Catalina Island: Connected to Providencia by a long wooden footbridge
- Santa Isabel: Administrative capital of Providencia
So, what are you waiting for? Choose your favorite Gaia bikinis and swimwear (it’s all you’ll need!), pack your bags and prepare to feel the energy of nature and to relax in this remote Colombian jewel.
