What tips would you give a friend?
All visitors travelling to San Andres Island will have to pay a tourist tax at the departure airport before flying which costs 104,000 COP per person.
By Bus – Buses circle the Island in both directions, arriving every 15mins. Each journey 2,400 COP. A good, cheap way to get around the Island, especially at night. By Taxi – Be prepared to pay quite a bit more for taxis here than on mainland Colombia, a 5 min journey from the airport can cost up to 20,000 COP. Mostly found in San Andres Town, you will unlikely be able to flag down a taxi elsewhere on the Island. Rent a bike/scooter/Golf cart. A good option if you´re staying a few days. Ask your hotel about where to hire these, prices per day are around 35,000 COP for a bike, 70,000 COP for a scooter and 150,000COP for a golf cart (discounted rates if renting for multiple days)....Read More
