      Looking for travel from Houston IAH

      Isla de Providencia Feb 8, 2015 at 11:17 AM

      Found this island while tracking a friends towing vessel (Corbin Foss). Looks very laid back yet with great snorkeling potential. It appears that there are a few Hotels, the Miss Alma piquing my interest.

      I need to get there although and no sites seem to be really thourough. I'd think that Iah to Costa Rica to San Andres to Providencia might work but options are welcome. 

      Thinking of two weeks during the off season, perhaps March next year or Late August / Sept. this year.

      Any info from you folks is greatly appreciated!

      Thanks, Doug

      Is it worthwhile booking accommodation in advance for this gem of an islet, or best to checkout the options upon arrival? looking for a relaxed, quiet little beach hut.

      Accommodation in Providencia over Christmas

      Intendenciade San Andrés y Providencia Oct 17, 2009 at 9:23 AM

      A friend and I are planning on visiting Providencia over Christmas 2009. It sounds super chilled which is great, but we wonder whether we *need* to book accommodation before we get there - I gather that the high season starts around mid December, and most places seem to get very busy around Christmas. We would prefer mid to low budget places and are whilst we are fairly easy going about things, we don't want to spend Christmas without anywhere to stay! Can anyone advise?

      Many thanks,

      I am coming to San Andreas, Columbia and was wondering if there is "high speed" internet access somewhere? I have to work for awhile while there and require high speed, not dial up service. Would appreciate knowing where to locate a service there, if possible.

      Intendenciade San Andrés y Providencia Dec 13, 2007 at 5:26 PM

      Hey all,

      I have a couple questions about San Andres, the small island closer to Nicaragua than Colombia. My girlfriend wants to go somewhere over Christmas, and have been told about San Andres. A travel agent has given us a pretty good price for an all-inclusive, Decameron San Luis.

      I guess I'm a bit concerned with things to do on the island. I am not an all-inclusive type of traveler whatsoever. I have backpacked through SE Asia, India, Yemen, and many other places. But the package is the cheapest one available.

      My questions are about any cultural things to see on San Andres? Things to do in the day (besides lounging on a beach drinking). What are the prices for things around the island (meals, transportation) places where locals hang out (don't want to be stuck talking to only foreigners). My girlfriend speaks Spanish, so that's not really a problem. Also, can I exchange Mexican Pesos for Colombian Pesos there? Or only US Dollars? What's the best currency for exchange, or should I just use ATM's?

      Lodging in San Andrés

      Hello again!

      We are not completely sure yet whether we'll be going to Providencia or to San Andrés for our honeymoon. If we do San Andrés, we don't want to go to a huge Decameron resort or anything or the likes.

      I heard about the Cocoplum Beach Resort and ran into some mixed reviews. Some say it was perfect and others say it was so-so. Can anyone here tell me about the place?

      Thank you!

      Honeymoon in Providencia - HELP!


      If we spend our honeymoon in Providencia, would it be better to stay at the Sol Caribe or at Cabañas Miss Mary? We're not looking for full-out luxury, but we don't want to "rough it" either. What we would like is something clean, comfortable, cheery and right on the beach.

      Is seven days too long or just right for a stay there? We want to relax and beach-bum but we don't want to get too bored there either.

      Since March is low season there (so I've read), will it be completely dead or will the island be the same as usual?

      A stay in San Andres is in our budget. If we go to Providencia instead, will we end up spending less, more or about the same amount of money as if we were in San Andres?

      Thank you!!!!

    • San Andres y Providencia Accommodation

      Intendenciade San Andrés y Providencia Aug 23, 2006 at 7:27 AM

      I am going to San Andres in October with my boyfriend for about 9 days and I would like to know if anyone has any good accommodation recommendations. I have had a look at the big hotels there (Decameron, hotel Sol etc...) and they look nice but I do not want these big all inclusive mass tourism type places. I am looking for a smaller boutique type hotel or even a private house or villa. We would like more independent style accommodation but I am finding it difficult to find anywhere. It is a special trip so we are prepared to spend a bit more money on the right place.

      Thanks in advance

      Heard lots of great things about these two secluded islands, but looking for somewhere to stay, all inclusive if possible. Preference from what I have heard so far is the smaller island of Providencia. Can anyone make any recommendations on somewhere to stay. Most important thing would be a double bed (two traveling) and clean (for the lady of course).
