San Andrés is a tropical island almost 800 kms north of Colombia, 200 kms east of Nicaragua.
In itself, it is a very nice island with bounty ad beaches and waters in different shades of beautiful blue. Unfortunately however, it is a tax-free paradise, so San Andrés city is packed with expensive hotels (for poor quality), tax free shops and expensive restaurants. Once you get out of the city, it is slightly better.
We rent a bicycle to cycle around the island which was ok. I would recommend investing in another flight rather than in a flight to San Andrés. We heard Providencia (an island 90 kms north of San Andrés) is much nicer and less touristic but then it is more expensive still so we decided not to go there.
Oh yeah, if you do go to the island, please watch out for men working, they are dangerous!
