La Piscinita, San Andres

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 a centerpiece of your San Andres Island vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our San Andres Island route maker .

  • It is certainly a natural wonder, a space to spend amazing moments with nature. Full of colorful fish and a very blue sea. The safety and care of young children is important.

  • Good place for family. Quieter west view. Only has one bar. You can't bring food or drink. I ordered a lemonade, and came to very little and very expensive. Good place to snorkel

  • An excellent place to visit... behind to west view ecological and turistical park, is a place similar attended by native people and you don't have to pay the entrance, only to drink and eat something there
  • 4.000 COP to enter per person. Basically a space prepared for watching some fishes. You can get into the water and make some photos and dive. It's an OK place.
  • You have to pay to get access You are not allowed to bring food or beverages No alcohol admitted The place is always crowded and sitting space is uncomfortably close to one another. If you have mobility difficulties, it is very hard to access the water
  • Very nice site, has a water slide and a trampoline, suitable for swimming at the sides of the fish. I recommend bringing faceshield or goggles skis to enjoy the depths of the sea

  • Beautiful place to swim. Jumping from a base of about 2 or 3 meters. Or to eat something... The Lord of the entrance makes you leave everything in the door cannot be food or beverage of any kind. That I didn't because it forces you to consume in place and is not very cheap. But if the place is very nice
