Important: Always carry only what’s necessary for each ride or tour. Don’t carry your original documents; leave them in the hotel, take a photocopy of them with you and keep scanned copies in your e-mail. Since it is a beach destination, you can have accidents or lose your belongings, and that is something difficult to solve on the island.
When arriving to San Andrés Island:
While flying, fill out the tourist card to enter the island. Have the hotel address and flight details on hand. This tourist card is usually purchased before boarding the flight to San Andrés and costs around 33 USD. Upon arrival, show it, and keep a copy to show it when leaving the island.
You can take a taxi at the airport or take it a block from the airport where it will cost you less.
Reach your accommodation: Depending on your arrival time, get ready to enjoy the beach or explore the island a bit. We suggest looking at the map to find out how far or close tourist attractions are from your accommodation.
