Colombia: Caribbean coast and islands

Visit Us

The Caribbean coast is not all about Cartagena, the colonial jewel which is such a magnet for visitors. There, the city beaches are fun but not exceptionally beautiful. East along the coast, the road passes the seaport Barranquilla and the bird-filled marshes and lagoons of La Ciénaga, reaching the pleasant seaside resort of Santa Marta. Just beyond is hilly, jungle-covered Tayrona National Park, embracing one of the most beautiful wild stretches of Caribbean coast. Golden beaches shaded by coconut palms are backed by rugged hills full of monkeys and iguanas. Offshore the Rosario islands are blissful coral atolls, while further afield is the quirky English-speaking volcanic island of Providencia.

What our experts say

With silky sands shaded by coconut palms as standard, you can't go wrong with a beach stay on Colombia's Caribbean coast or on one of her outlying islands. Choose between developed holiday resorts such as Santa Marta or the jealously conserved coves in Tayrona National Park. Off-shore you have the same contrast: San Andres is a holiday island with clutch of hotels designed to accommodate sun-loving package tourists while English-speaking Providencia, closer to the coast of Nicaragua,  recalls the home-spun, laid back Caribbean of British Imperial times.
