Colonial Buildings and San Andres Beaches

Colombia’s beaches are famous for their white sands and turquoise waters and this tour gives you the chance to experience them first-hand. Starting in Cartagena, you’ll have the opportunity to get to know one of Colombia’s most popular tourist destinations. The Old City in Cartagena has been named a UNESCO World Heritage site, and with its cobbled streets and colonial buildings it’s not hard to understand why.

From Cartagena you’ll visit Playa Blanca and San Andres Islands. San Andres is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in Colombia, including Johnny Cay, an unmissable paradise. It is also one of Colombia’s premier shopping destinations, so leave space in your suitcase. Our tour comes with many optional extras, such as diving, a submarine tour and a visit to one of Colombia’s most famous mud volcanoes.

Day 1. Cartagena

Upon arrival one of See Colombia Travel´s representatives will be on hand to transfer you to your chosen hotel where you can relax and prepare for your upcoming adventure with us.

Day 2. Cartagena. City Tour

Our Cartagena City Tour will take approximately four hours. We begin the tour with a visit to Cerro de la Popa, a cloister built on top of a hill that dominates the entire city. Following this we will see the oldest church in the city, San Pedro Claver. Whilst in the famous Old City, we will visit Plaza Bolivar, Bobedas and the Bocagrande neighbourhood. The Old City retains all the charm of the colonial days, its narrow, cobbled streets flanked by charming balconies and traditional wooden doors. We will finish in Cartagena’s famous mall, Pierino Gallo, for some shopping. Your afternoon will be free to enjoy the city at your leisure.


Day 3. Cartagena- Playa Blanca

Located about 1 hour from Cartagena, Playa Blanca is one of the most beautiful beaches on the Caribbean coast of Colombia. It derives its name from the whiteness of its sand, washed by the turquoise-colored water with coral reefs. This is the perfect place to enjoy the beach and tropical Caribbean climate, and a great opportunity to taste the local cuisine, mostly consisting of fish and coconut rice.

Day 4. Cartagena - San Andres

Transfer to the Airport, assisted by See Colombia Travel staff, for your upcoming journey across Colombia. Enjoy unique views of the beautiful seven-colour ocean from the skies. Upon arrival in San Andres, you will transfer to one of our specially chosen hotels.

Day 5. San Andres. Tour of the Island

This two-hour excursion will take you to the Morgan Grotto, connected to the ocean by a series of tunnels, where, according to the legend, the famous pirate Henry Morgan hid his treasures. We will continue to the Blow Hole – an upstream current of water that looks similar to a geyser when the tide is high and the breeze is pushed through the series of tunnels. We will visit Punta Sur, the southernmost point of the island with a magnificent view and, afterwards, San Luis, a traditional area with pleasant beaches.

Day 6. San Andres

Free day to enjoy the beautiful white sand beach in Johny Cay, and the fascinating aquarium (optional).

Day 7. San Andres

Another free day to relax by the beautiful beach and do your tax-free shopping before heading back to Cartagena.

Day 8. San Andres - Cartagena

At the chosen time you will be transferred to the airport. All good things must come to an end, after all. Of course, if 8 days just isn´t enough time in Colombia, our tours are 100% customizable and we´d be happy to extend your stay with us. Just ask for more details.
