The visit around the island is awesome and full of places where to stop and get a nice pic, but this blow hole is not one of them. This place is full of people trying to rip you off in every possible way. The blow...More

It's a must see in San Andres.. It won't blow that much without big waves. So go with high tide.. There's no entrance fee per se. But they ask you to purchase something from the stores.. A cocktail is always a good option.. Try the...More

You will encounter an open hole in the ground with closely huddled vendor sheds. It was horribly presented and unremarkable. We were terribly disappointed. Watch your kids and your step. I would also watch pockets as folks huddle around the hole and it is a...More
