    The infrastructure and the acquis are quite simple, but enough to help you to know a little more about the history and context of San Andrés. There is a story and a local culture that apparently indicate a certain distancing of political circumstance of linking to Colombia. In the usual walk around the island, is opportunity of a stop of less than 1 hour. In our case, we were very well attended by Mike, we toasted with a show of traditional dances and songs of the island, Caribbean roots and clearly independent of Colombian traditions.
