This is the view of the reefs off San Andres Island.

I arrived here from Barranquilla, a one-way flight was $80.

My goal was to try to find a way to cross directly to Nicaragua,

preferably to the Corn Islands where I had been two months before.

From here tourists catch watertaxis over to Johnny Cay

This is the Hotel Delfines where I stayed for 4 nights.

My own poolside room with A/C, cable TV, breakfast, and dinner was $15 per night.

This boat would take me to Corn Island but

they wanted $2,000 and would have to go at night,

since the crossing was prohibited.

La Hoya del Splendor is a natural blowhole in the reef at the south end of the island.

Under certain tide and wave conditions it spews water out the opening.
