San Andres

San Andres

San Andres is about 13km long and 3km wide. It is relatively flat and largely covered by coconut palms. A 30km scenic paved road circles the island, and several roads cross inland.

The main urban center and capital of the archipelago is the town of San Andres (known locally as El Centro), in the northern end of the island. It has two-thirds of the island's 70,000 inhabitants and is the principal tourist and commercial area, packed with hotels, restaurants and stores. Travelers often used San Andres as a bridge between Central America and Colombia. Now, because connections and airfares have changed, it's no longer a popular transit point, yet it still draws in foreign visitors seeking a taste of the Caribbean.
