PROVIDENCIA Y SANTA CATALINA ISLAS

 “An unknown paradise for many, but valued for those who have enjoyed this hidden treasure

Also known as “A HIDDEN TREASURE IN THE WESTERN CARIBBEAN SEA”, the islands have the richness and unique exotic natural beauty of the Caribbean Sea.  They were recognized in 2000 by UNESCO as “SEAFLOWER BIOSPHERE RESERVE” with a length close to 32 kms, a total extension of 255 kls2 of coral reef which surrounds the islands. The islands are the third longest coral reef in the world and the second in the Caribbean sea. In 2005 were declared as a MULTIPLE USE MARINE PROTECTED AREA  (MAP).

THE ISLANDS are so small they do not appear in any geography or important books, only in the marine maps, they are located between the coordinates 13° 17’ y 13° 32´ N y 81° 17´y 81° 26´W, approximately 600 Km. From Cartagena de Indias, a major Colombian tourist city, 200 Km. away of Central America, only 20 minutes flight from San Andrés island in the Colombian Caribbea.

Mi recomendación al llegar a la isla es olvidarse de horarios y de la rigidez de la vida, la cultura e idiosincrasia de sus habitantes no les va a permitir casi que planear nada, son personas muy flexibles así que solo planeé hacer lo que pueda y aproveche cada momento.... Muchas gracias, — Daniel Palacios

Tuve la oportunidad de bucear hace un par de meses con Felipe y en verdad fue una experiencia increíble, los cursos son prácticos y divertidos, la biodiversidad bajo el agua es fantástica. Vale la pena conocer y bucear en Providencia, la calidez humana, los paisajes, comida, etc., permiten a cualquier persona tener unas excelentes vacaciones. — Daniel Palacios
