Filled With Useful Info That Travelers Use To Plan Their South America Tour

Colombia Beaches San AndreasWhen imagining beaches in South America, most people would probably think about Brazil. However, discovering beautiful Colombia beaches is one of the best-kept secrets of South America’s treasures. These Caribbean Colombia beaches and islands are lesser known and just as beautiful as others in the Caribbean, such as Jamaica and the Bahamas.

Imagine crystal clear waters, white sand and tropical weather in Colombia, and the first place that comes to mind is San Andres Island. Located in the Caribbean, and just a two hour flight away from mainland Colombia, this island paradise offers an spectacular scenario for relaxation. San Andres boasts perfect weather throughout the year, and its lush vegetation make this place one of the “must see” Colombia beaches. The local culture reflects its different historical influences – from the Spanish colonial era to reggae due to its proximity to Jamaica.

Colombia Beaches near CartagenaOne of the most important Colombia beaches are those located in Cartagena de Indias. Surrounded by a beautiful landscape of white sand, palm trees and blue ocean, this city is well-known for its architecture and rich culture. Besides its beautiful Colombia beaches, the city is an amazing destination by itself, divided in two areas, one modern part called  “Bocagrande” with high towers facing the beach, and the historical part called “The Walled City,” full of restaurants and shopping centers.

One interesting Colombia beach to visit from Cartagena is Rosario Island which can be reached by boat. Actually a collection of small islands, Rosario is a perfect getaway from the city and it offers a rather calm atmosphere for those in search of relaxation. Swim, snorkel, and kayak among the coral reefs and mangrove forests. Visit the aquarium and then enjoy a lunch of fried plantains and fish.

For travelers who are interested in something more adventurous, the Tayrona National Park will be the perfect place to visit. Facing the Carribean Sea, this coastal national park is a great place for trekking, surfing, and relaxing on pristine beaches. This delightful spot can be reached really easily from Santa Marta, and it offers Colombia wilderness at its most pure. After a day spent hiking or surfing, relax in an “arrecife” hammock hut or go camping. While away the evening listening to reggae music and sipping a fresh-squeezed maracuya juice. Watch the sunset and learn why discovering beautiful Colombia beaches is well-worth the trip to South America.

My name is Diego and I was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia. I have always been passionate about traveling since very little and when I turned 19 I decided to travel all around South America, going first to Peru, then Ecuador and living for almost a year in Santiago de Chile. While living there I had the opportunity to travel all around the country from the desert in north Chile to Patagonia in the very South, then visited Buenos Aires and fell in love of city where I’m currently living. Here I’m helping out travelers all around the world to put together their ideal trip throughout this amazing continent. My favorite places definitely are the Lake region in Argentina and The National Park Torres del Paine where any picture taken can’t go wrong.
