La Piscinita, San Andres

4.1
#1 of 114 in Wildlife in Colombia
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 .

  • Very nice place, perfect for carrying children, as its main attraction is swimming in a natural pool of 4 meters deep filled with colorful fish! This is a must go if you're going to san Andres also!

  • 4000 pesos per person, you get bread for the fishes. Mask hire is from 15000 plus 50000 deposit depending on which quality mask you take. We were going to west view but it looked too touristy. This one was more laid back and if you get there early not many people around. Good to see this side of the island, no beaches but rocky. Nice fish to see. Taxis are rare so make an arrangement with someone or take a number to call.
  • We had so much fun here! Recommend.
