San Andres – The Colombian Island in the Caribbean

Everyone has their fantasies about dream vacations. All those pictures we see, taken from priviledged points of view of pin-point chosen locations… San Andres sure has a beautiful sea, but the majority of its population is poor, and it reflects on the island’s scenery. Still, what I loved the best about this trip was diving. I went diving 3 days only out of the 7 I stayed in the island, and I should have gone more times… diving gives me such a sense of peace while I’m underwater!! I specially liked the diving places called “La Montanita” and “Bajo Bonito”, which are like an infinite crystal clear acquarium, so beautiful and full of colorful life!

Todo mundo tem suas fantasias sobre as férias dos sonhos. Todas essas fotos que a gente vê, tomadas de pontos de vista privilegiados de locações escolhidas a dedo… San Andrés com certeza tem um mar lindo, mas a maioria da população é pobre e isso reflete no cenário da ilha. De qualquer forma, o que eu mais amei nessa viagem foi mergulhar. Mergulhei apenas 3 dias dos 7 que fiquei na ilha, e me arrependo… eu deveria ter ido mais vezes… mergulhar me dá uma sensação de paz tão grande!! Eu gostei principalmente dos pontos de mergulho chamados “La Montanita” e “Bajo Bonito”, que pareciam aquários infinitos de água cristalina, tão lindo e cheio de vida colorida!

In San Andrés there are boats leaving daily to go to Cayo Bolívar. It’s a beautiful islet that goes further into the middle of nowhere haha I really enjoyed it there, specially because we saw a nurse shark in the shallows (and that’s why I mentioned on instagram that I wanted to save money for a water housing for my camera :P). Some people took pictures of me swimming all around it, but I don’t think they’ll ever send any of those pictures to me😥

Em San Andrés tem lanchas saindo diariamente para ir pra Cayo Bolívar. É uma ilhota muito bonita que vai mais longe ainda para o meio do nada hahaha Eu adorei esse passeio, especialmente porque vimos um tubarão enfermeiro nas partes rasas (e foi por isso que eu mencionei no instagram que eu quero economizar dinheiro pra comprar uma case a prova d’água pra minha máquina :P). Algumas pessoas tiraram fotos minhas nadando em volta do tubarão, mas eu não acho que eles vão me mandar essas fotos😥
