Colombia Colonial architecure

The Colombian Caribbean is known for stunning white sand beaches, beautiful warm water and a distinct mix of South American and Caribbean cultures. On your 11 Day Itinerary you will visit multiple islands and beaches both off the coast of Colombia and on the mainland. This itinerary is ideal for travellers who have already visited the highlights of Colombia or what a beach focused stand alone holiday.

Your adventure starts in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Cartagena de Indias. This vibrant yet historical beach city offer a great insight into the Colombian history and traditional culture. From Cartagena, you transfer by boat for two nights on the nearby Rosario Islands. Return to Cartagena then fly north off the coast of Colombia to San Andres, Providencia and Santa Catalina for the next five nights.  This little known archipelago is located to the northwest of the Colombian mainland in the Caribbean and was declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 2000. It is believed that the islands were first discovered by Christopher Columbus on his second journey and then they were administered by the English from 1631.

This led to a period of colonisation, in particular, by people of African descent. In 1670 the infamous pirate Henry Morgan established his base on the island of Providencia and there are still some who believe the legends that some of his treasures remain buried here. Due to the history of the archipelago the language spoken on the islands is a patois, the mixture of English and Spanish.

For many reasons the archipelago is a combination of backgrounds; it is geographically close to the coast of Nicaragua; has strong historical ties to England and politically makes up part of Colombia. For all of the aforementioned reasons the archipelago has many cultural contrasts to compliment the breathtaking scenery. The average water temperature all year round oscillates between 27 and 29 degrees celsius. Each turn you take in this adventure through the Colombian Caribbean will be something new and exciting.
