Trip Planner: South America / Colombia / San Andres and Providencia Department / San Andres Island / San Andres / La Piscinita
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.
La Piscinita Reviews
You can stay half an hour. Tides are strong. You can jump in the water and they give you one slice of bread when you pay the entry fee (6,000 COP). It's worth a stop. more »
Swimming with the fish ! Bring your snorkel gear. Entrance is 6000 pesos and they don't allow you to take your bottle of water with you, which I find a real shame. But a fun activity! more »
very nice and inexpensive place to spend 3-4 hrs. you can go here with the bus tour that takes you around the island but you only get about 30 minutes to swim/snorkel with the fish. both goggles and life-vests are available to rent for about $2 USD each. super affordable and fun. take bread with you to feed the fish so they come to you.
Cool place to enjoy the afternoon. Fun to swim with all the fishes and feed them.
