La Piscinita, San Andres

4.0
#1 of 114 in Wildlife Areas in Colombia
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
Crystalline waters, vibrant marine life, and excellent snorkeling typify La Piscinita, a pristine strip of coastline on San Andres Island in the Caribbean Sea. Take a snorkeling tour to fully appreciate the colorful coral and aquatic life offshore. While the beach lacks fully developed tourist infrastructure, you can grab a meal at the nearby restaurant. Wear shoes suitable for walking on jagged rocks that cover much of the shorefront, and look out for the occasional spiky creature on the sea floor. Make La Piscinita part of your personalized San Andres Island itinerary using our San Andres Island trip itinerary planner.

  • Good place to swiming and snorkeling.
  • Gorgeous place. Bring your snorkel!
  • Cool and beautiful, but a bit crowded
  • Great experience! Bring your snorkel, or rent one really cheap here
  • Those who have not seen anything San Andrés, might be impressed. I was on my last day, and I've seen a lot of fish and most beautiful things, so I don't consider a stopover. It's a small place to stay 30 minutes tops.
